Corporate Social Responsibility
METKA is committed to the principle of sustainable
development and its business practices are entirely
connected with the concept of Corporate Social Re-

The continuing efforts of the group in this area are
demonstrated through the contribution to the eco-

ever it operates, by providing a modern and safe
work place for employees, and through our commit-
ment to protect the environment.
Environmental Protection

natural environment. Consequently, the company
carries out its business activities in a way that aims
to minimize as much as possible the impact on the
environment, such as by integrating the principles
of sustainable development in its procedures and
decisions, by systematically monitoring the develop-
ments in environmental technologies and practices,
as well as by applying the best available techniques.

Also importantly, METKA implements a manage-
ment system for the Greenhouse Gas Emissions In-
ventory and Reporting on its activities, according to
the requirements of the International Environmental
Standard ISO 14064. With this remarkable new ac-

Carbon Footprint and to take the appropriate im-
provement measures.

ment, as expressed through its official Environmen-
tal Policy, and its sensitivity in matters related to
environmental protection, constitute a guarantee
for the achievement of the targets set regarding the
initiatives and actions against Climate Change.
