Preserving and Saving Energy

 Saving electricity and combating air pollution

Saving electricity consumption reduces the load on the national grid and, thus, electricity production. This reduces the pollution emitted into the atmosphere. At Leumi, we are convinced that until nonpolluting solutions are found, we have a duty to reduce energy consumption as much as possible.

 

 Efficient energy consumption

Leumi perseveres consistently by introducing various initiatives aimed at maintaining efficient and economical electricity consumption. Despite the Bank’s continually expanding operations (which is expressed in the renting and acquiring of new buildings), electricity consumption has remained relatively stable over the years, as portrayed in the following illustration:Electrical Energy Consumption

 

 Energy-saving steps adopted by Leumi

 

  • Illumination savings
    1. Use of fluorescent lamps and low-power illumination appliances
    2. Use of smart systems for illumination control
    3. Making strict illumination extinguishing inspections at the end of each workday at facilities where there is no illumination monitoring
    4. Use of economical illumination appliances with electronic regulators

 

  • Temperature and air conditioning regulation
    1. Installing smart air-conditioning systems that regulate the air supply
    2. Operating air-conditioning systems according to fixed schedules
    3. Curtaining south-facing windows in order to prevent excess heating
    4. In new branches: Installing thermal glass in south-facing windows

 

  • Heating water
    1. Reducing the temperature of the geyser to 45°C permanently
    2. Using residual heat (that is produced in the cooling condensation in the air conditioners) for heating water.
