In the
EPC Projects Sector
, METKA does not manage primary
natural resources, but instead manages semi-finished or fin-
ished products, according to the detailed plans/drawings and
procedures for each project, which specify with great accuracy
each material to be used, its manufacturing method and its exact
position and operation. These plans/drawings and procedures of
the company conform to the latest developments in the respec-
tive fields of expertise. They involve the use of complex materi-
als/products such as turbines, power generators, pumps etc. for
incorporation in its products/projects, together with more simple
ones such as merchant bars (beams, pipes, steel plates, axles,
cast parts etc.) for manufacturing (cutting, welding, processing,
hardening) in its industrial facilities or in those of its subcontrac-
tors. The manufactured products are then transported to the cus-
tomer’s facility / construction site, where assembly/erection of the
final product (e.g. a power plant) takes place.
8.1 Environmental compliance
Compliance with the environmental legislation is a core priority of
MYTILINEOS Group and a major issue of equal importance with
issues such as personnel safety, quality, economic performance
and customer satisfaction, which the Group is managing in the
context of its efforts for continuous and responsible development.
This view, which also serves as the foundation of the Group’s en-
vironmental policy, aims to drive the continuous improvement of
its environmental performance and is based, first and foremost,
on the principle of adherence to the provisions of the law, as well
as to the agreements concluded and the voluntary commitments
made both by MYTILINEOS S.A. and by the Group’s subsidiaries.
To this end, the strict adherence to the applicable laws and to the
provisions of the regulatory framework, the implementation of a
regular environmental legislation review process and the appli-
cation of the environmental rules and regulations pertaining to
the Group’s activities, have resulted in the absence of any inci-
dents involving a deteriorating in the quality of the environment
during 2015.
G4-29
In October 2015, a non-routine inspection was conducted at
ALUMINIUM OF GREECE by an 11-strong team of inspectors
from the Hellenic Environmental Inspectorate. The inspection
took 3 full days and the inspectors visited almost all company
work areas. ALUMINIUM OF GREECE supplied all the relevant in-
formation and the necessary documents requested. According to
the inspectors, this inspection was one of the most extensive and
they were very positively impressed with the plant and with the
Environmental Management Plan it has in place. The inspection’s
findings will be announced in 2016.
8.2 Raw & Other Materials
G4-EN1
In 2015, approximately 2.18 million tonnes of raw materials (dry
basis) were used in the
Metallurgy & Mining sector
, posting a
marginal increase (by 0.7%) compared to 2014. Of this total quan-
tity, 85% relates to bauxite, which is the main raw material used
for the production of alumina and aluminium. A large portion of
the bauxite quantities required in the production process every
year comes from Greece and, more specifically, from the Mt
Helikon - Mt Parnassus - Mt Gkiona zone, where Greece’s most
important known bauxite deposits, estimated at around 100 mil-
lion tonnes, are located. The use of alternative raw materials, i.e.
byproducts or waste from other industries, which can reduce the
consumption of raw materials, is not applicable to aluminium
production.
G4-EN2
Group policy on responsible management of raw and other
materials:
Our Commitment
To identify the sources and assume the re-
sponsibility for the unavoidable impacts of
our operations on the natural environment
and to carry out concerted “green” actions or
programs to mitigate these impacts, coupled
with systematic monitoring and application
of the Group’s Environmental Measures and
Principles across all Group companies.

Environmental management
system and regulatory
compliance
All Group’s subsidiaries apply, certified ISO
14001, Environmental Management System
that is designed to minimize environmental
risks, adapt measures for preventing and
minimizing environmental accidents, train-
ing employees and enhance environmental
culture.
All Group companies comply with current
environmental legislation and are assessed
annually on their results. Their priority is
to implement streamlined policies of envi-
ronmental protection in order to achieve in-
creasingly better performance.
