KEY ISSUES RAISED & EXPECTATIONS – 2013 *
ALUMINIUM S.A. was asked to assist the efforts to reduce total CO
2
emissions in the region, so
that the Municipality can achieve the pollutant emission reduction targets by 2020, in order for
its application to be considered positively by the EU, which finances such efforts with European
funds.
The Mayor of Livadia proposed a collaboration between ALUMINIUM S.A. and the city's Public
Vocational Training Institutes (IEK), which are now back in operation, for developing a vocation-
al training programme whose graduates would be suitably qualified and useful as future employ-
ees of the Company.
The local authorities expressed their expectation that ALUMINIUM S.A. will contribute to the ef-
forts for the reforestation of the Distomo region, where around 5,000 hectares were complete-
ly destroyed by a fire in the summer of 2012.
The Vice-Mayor of Livadia complained that the financial assistance to sport societies and clubs
in neighbouring Municipalities is not allocated fairly, particularly so in the case the Municipality
of Kyriaki, especially considering the real needs in these Municipalities.
The Municipality of Distomo-Antikyra proposed that ALUMINIUM S.A. should undertake an in-
formation campaign targeting the families in the local community. This campaign will concern the
plant's qualification requirements for recruitment, so that parents can suitably guide their children
in selecting a course of studies in the respective domain in order to increase their chances of re-
cruitment as company employees.
ALUMINIUM S.A. was asked whether or not it sees to it that the areas it has already reforested
are taken care of and are not neglected.
RESPONSE TO THE KEY ISSUES RAISED IN THE CONSULTATIONS HELD IN 2012
In the context of its collaboration with the Association of Industries in Thessaly and in Cen-
tral Greece, METKA S.A. continued to assist financially the efforts to encourage and support
young entrepreneurs. Especially in a Greek Region that is hit by unemployment, the support
of young entrepreneurs and of the creation of new businesses, focusing on promoting inno-
vation, technology and extroversion, is one of the Company’s key priorities.
ALUMINIUM S.A. undertakes to schedule a special session during its Dialogue Forum 2014
for presenting in detail the level of impact of bauxite residues on the environment. The re-
quest made by Local Authority organisations for continuation of the Company's social con-
tribution during 2013 was satisfied.
