Materiality
In determining the contents of our Sus-
tainability Report, we applied the criteria
under the Principle of Materiality, as defined
by the GRI, in order to ensure that the pres-
ent publication addresses all issues in con-
nection with the challenges which concern
the Group’s activity, in terms of sustain-
ability, together with the corresponding is-
sues which could materially affect the es-
timates and decisions made by our key
Stakeholder groups.
To this end, the following activities were
synthesised:
Τhe identification of our Stakeholders
expectations in terms of sustainability,
following the 4th cycle of our En-
gagement procedure carried out by all
our subsidiaries.
The application, for the 2nd consecutive
year, of the procedure to determine the
key issues pertaining to the Group’s En-
vironmental and Social footprint which,
in addition to the individual CSR Teams,
also involves the Management of all our
subsidiaries.
The results of the working meetings of
the CSR teams of the Group companies
and the collaboration with the Heads of
Departments in the context of the data
collection and evaluation tasks. In car-
rying out the data collection and eval-
uation work regarding the information
required for the Report, our subsidiaries'
CSR teams used as guidance the princi-
ples of the GRI G3.1 to ensure the best
possible quality of the Report’s content,
by checking the balance, comparability,
accuracy, clarity and reliability of the rel-
evant data.
The outcome of the annual CSR Mapping
project, which involves the assessment
of the significance of the issues per-
taining to responsible entrepreneurship
(at the level of policies, actions and re-
sults), which are renewed annually by the
Group companies and form the basis of
the Sustainability Report for each year.
The examination of the Group’s vision
and values and its core commitments in
the framework of Corporate Social Re-
sponsibility.
The process for the renewal of the mate-
riality issues is an ongoing exercise which
we develop and improve with each year. Its
purpose is to analyse the dynamics of the
social and environmental issues as well as
the corporate governance criteria which
form part of our strategy from both an in-
ternal and an external viewpoint, and to
also identify the risks that these may en-
tail. In the framework of our Stakeholders
Engagement procedure in 2013, we de-
veloped a special-purpose questionnaire
which allowed us to directly assess our
Stakeholders' responses in terms of their
perception and prioritisation of material-
ity issues, while ad hoc working groups
composed of senior and top management
executives determined the influence and sig-
nificance of these issues for the company’s
business evolution and the manner in
which they should be handled.
The result of this process, after also tak-
ing into account the actions mentioned
above, is shown in the materiality graph giv-
en below:

Our continuous efforts to apply Respon-
sible Entrepreneurship in practice rely on our
collaboration with our Stakeholder groups

solutions to the issues that concern us. To
this end, we have identified our key Stake-

As we have done in the past, in preparing
this year's Report we have voluntarily

ty Reporting Guidelines, including the
Principles for Defining Report Content, as
well as with the requirements of interna-
tional standards and guidelines such as:
The GRI sustainability reporting guide-
lines based on the Mining and Metals
Sector Supplement, (March 2010),
which is a key pillar of our Group's per-
formance in the broader context of sus-
tainability.
The seven CSR fundamental principles,
as defined by the ISO 26000 CSR In-
ternational Standard, which cover ac-
countability, transparency, ethical be-
haviour, respect for Stakeholder inter-
ests, respect for the rule of law and for
international norms of behaviour and
Human Rights protection. For the
