BBVA implements a complete solution in the cloud for the automated management of its environmental data – pv magazine Spain

BBVA has implemented a complete cloud-based solution that allows the financial institution to simplify the process of sending and validating information, providing carbon footprint indicators and emission reduction tracking figures. In short, it is a platform that will enable active and data-driven management of your sustainability policies.

Madrid, July 26, 2022 – sustainability is one of the transformative pillars of BBVA, which applies as a strategic priority in all areas of the bank’s action, including the management and improvement of the work centers themselves. Under this premise, the financial institution has implemented Salesforce’s Net Zero Cloud, a Cloud development for the complete management of the environmental data of its corporate buildings. With this initiative, the entity will optimize its processes for measuring its carbon footprint and eliminate manual procedures.

A system that automates data entry and calculations, makes it possible to obtain a granular and transversal analysis of the consumption of the Group’s buildings worldwide and defines alerts on key indicators. To integrate this solution, BBVA called on the company NTT DATA, which specializes in systems integration.

This new platform will allow BBVA to follow the evolution of the main environmental indicators of its corporate buildings and its commercial network of offices in the countries where it is present. In addition, it will generate different scenarios to analyze the evolution of its indicators in relation to its environmental commitments.

“At BBVA, we are committed to finding the best solutions that lead to a sustainable green transition. We integrate the dimension of sustainability in our daily life, both in the relationship with our customers and in our internal processes or in the management of all the company’s assets”said Desiree Granda, Global Head of Real Estate and Services at BBVA. Bank work centers already have the highest sustainability standards there “This new development allows us to make decisions faster, in a more agile way, and to follow the objectives established in our Global Eco-efficiency Plan”. A plan that establishes year-to-year targets focused on reducing direct impacts such as reduced electricity consumption per employee 10%, 7% total energy consumption, 11% water and paper consumption or 4% net waste.

With the Salesforce Net Zero Cloud, BBVA will standardize the processes for calculating emissions in the countries where it is present, facilitating the monitoring of the objectives set by the entity. In the same way, this solution will analyze the information through reports and dashboards to respond to the different levels of ‘report’ organisation. All with a reliable source of information on which the bank will develop its carbon footprint reduction strategy.

For its part, NTT DATA was in charge of both the integration of the solution with the BBVA systems and the development of the calculation processes, and the implementation of the reporting system and dashboards. Eva Martino, BBVA Global Account Manager at NTT DATA, explains that “Innovation and technology are essential to achieve real sustainability goals, improve social commitment but also the commercial development of each company. Achieving comprehensive management is not just about collecting the available data, but also being able to measure it together, as a basis for analysis to make future decisions. A challenge for the future of companies and in which BBVA takes the lead with projects like this”.

“In order to develop a good climate action plan and roadmap that takes us towards the goal of zero emissions, the starting point must be an accurate measurement of the climate impact of each organization”, comments Alejandro Romero, vice president and head of the financial services sector for the Iberian Peninsula at Salesforce. “BBVA is showing their commitment and leadership in this area and we are proud that they have our technology to meet this challenge”To add.
