Environment & Ecology
Spanish term or phrase: consumos efectivos
Again, on the environment, specifically a company's paper usage.
Here they are talking about consumption but I'm not sure about the "efectivo" part.

En las producciones en instalaciones propias se potencian programas de mejora continua para optimizar los consumos efectivos de papel.

Thanks in advance!
