Climate change and protection of the environment

A+ A-

The assessment of environmental impacts and taking initiatives for minimizing the potential negative environmental consequences of our activities is an effort based on thorough investigations and persistent study. 

Specifically, to address the effects of climate change, our actions are based on the international approach of its address and adaptation, while our goals are:

• identifying sources of direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions from our operations and the limits of our responsibility,

• Recording and disclosure using internationally recognized standards and

• Introduction of measures to reduce them.

Management approach

In MYTILINEOS Group, we wish to put our size and dynamism to conscious use for the protection of the environment. To this end, working systematically and responsibly, through our day-to-day practices as well as through concerted actions; we seek to ensure a better environment for ourselves and for our children.

 

 The rational management of the reserves of mineral and natural resources (wind and solar energy, water and fuels), the control of greenhouse gas emissions, the utilization of residues (e.g. bauxite), the control of air quality and the rehabilitation of the natural landscape in areas affected by mining activities, are the key environmental challenges faced by MYTILINEOS Group across the entire range of its activities.

 

 Driven by our key concern to minimize the unavoidable impacts of our companies' activities on the natural environment, we are implementing environmental protection and industrial hazard control policies that form the basis for a comprehensive and effective system of Environmental Management practices and method. Furthermore, this management system is gradually incorporated in the business activities of all our subsidiaries and in the procedures that define their day-to-day operations.

 

 Our efforts to protect the environment are not limited to the application of the statutory rules and provisions and to the adoption of appropriate measures as required in each case, but is also expressed by our self-commitment to holding regular audits of our activities in our industrial facilities and RES plants, as well as in our corporate headquarters. Our ultimate goal is to have our activities certified in accordance with the ISO 14001 Environmental Management International Standard.

 

 In line with all the above, our key environmental goals are “TO ENSURE THE BEST POSSIBLE UTILISATION OF BAUXITE RESIDUES”, “TO MEASURE REGULARLY AND REDUCE CO2 EMISSIONS” in all our companies, and “TO MANAGE EFFECTIVELY THE REHABILITATION OF THE NATURAL LANDSCAPE AND THE PRESERVATION OF BIODIVERSITY IN THE AREAS AFFECTED BY MINING ACTIVITIES”.

 

Sustainable development is a core strategic priority for MYTILINEOS Group, not only as an indicator of the Group’s performance in the Corporate Social Responsibility domain but also as a factor which contributes a significant competitive advantage in the energy supply sector.
