Key issues raised & Expectations 2014
Response
Publication of Protergia’s Suppliers Code of Conduct.
The Code’s completion is expected by the end of June 2016, so that its
publication will follow. The Code will cover the main standards of ethical
behaviour and the CSR values and principles.
The importance of supporting initiatives of a social nature, by
providing assistance to organisations such as «Medécins Sans
Frontières», as well as by contributing to the organisation of meals
for the homeless with the participation of the company’s employees,
was pointed out. It was also proposed to the company to examine
the possibility of supplying electricity to social groups living on the
verge of poverty.
Proteria participates in a number of social work initiatives. These include:
the program «Be a piece of our heart», carried out by the «Together for
Children» Association, the donation of heating oil to the Primary Schools
and Nursery Schools of Akraifnio and Kokkino in the Municipality of
Orchomenos, Viotia, to cover their heating needs and the public benefit
projects carried out at the Municipality of Karystos.
Proposal to the company to become involved in actions in support
of young entrepreneurs.
In 2016, a new social program focused on skills & experience support
of new graduates for easier access to the labor market, will be
implemented by the MYTILINEOS Group.
Proposal to the company to further develop activities in the RES
sector.
Protergia is actively participating in the development of Renewable
Energy Sources. It currently has 1,233 MW of RES-based energy assets
at various licensing stages. In addition, in 2015 one more Wind Farm,
with a total installed capacity of 14 WM, entered in operation in Trikorfa,
Fokida.
Proposal for better communication to the local communities of
Protergia’s social contribution activities. Extension of its financial
assistance to socially vulnerable groups in need of immediate help.
Protergia is open to dialogue and collaborations, and will examine all
proposals which could help further improvements to issues of concern
for the local communities where it develops its business activities.
According to the company’s policy, a written agreement (“Memorandum
of Understanding" - MoU) is concluded between the company and the
local authorities regarding the implementation of public benefit projects,
infrastructure works or cultural activities in the area concerned. The
target is to improve the quality of life of local residents, in consultation
and collaboration with the local Municipality and depending on its latter’s
needs, with the local community stating its acceptance of the RES
project.
Proposal for collaboration with the Municipality of Loutraki, to
establish organisations that will develop the natural resources of
the wider area.
The possibility of implementing this proposal will be examined in 2016.
It was suggested to the company to also offer to customers (natural
and legal persons) services (incentives) for increasing the energy
efficiency and, sometime in the near future, to also offer ESCO
(Energy Service Company) services.
Protergia has developed the
«Myprotergia»
application, enabling its
customers to monitor detailed data on their electricity consumption and
to save electricity.
Proposal to the company to become involved in smart grid, energy
storage and electric mobility activities..
The company always examines all business possibilities in relation to
electricity production, in accordance with its business goals.
