MYTILINEOS HOLDINGS SUSTAINABILITY REPORT
2015
are some of the fundamental aspects of the specific policies on
product quality and safety applied by our subsidiaries in the Metal-
lurgy & Mining Sector as well as in the EPC Projects sector.
The industrial activities of METKA focus on the world-class man-
ufacturing for high-value added heavy and/or complex steel
fabrications for energy, infrastructure and defence applications.
Typically, these projects involve the use of the company’s sophis-
ticated computer controlled machining equipment and high qual-
ity fabrication capabilities.
Building on 50 years of experience in large-scale manufacturing
projects, the company’s state-of-the-art industrial facilities and
equipment offer significant competitive advantages to METKA,
particularly in terms of reliability and compliance with the most
stringent international quality standards. METKA is committed to
setting a high level of quality for customer satisfaction in every
stage of manufacturing. METKA’s high level educated and expe-
rienced personnel is ready to meet high level customer quality
requirements.
In the Metallurgy & Mining Sector, ensuring that mining and pro-
cessing of natural resources take place in a responsible and sus-
tainable way is at the core of our commitment to duly manage our
product. At the same time, this commitment represents a critical
stage that defines the level of the quality offered to our customers.
Key aspects of the management of our products are the techno-
logical upgrades of our machinery, the use of the strictest techno-
logical specifications and processes and the minimisation of the
solid and liquid waste from our production activities.
For the last 50 years, ALUMINIUM OF GREECE has embodied the
impressive evolution of the metallurgical sector in Greece, with
a know-how in industrial and commercial practices that is found
only among the world’s top metallurgical industries. The quality of
its products and the provision of technical support and customer
service are areas of continuous development.
An indicative example of the company’s efforts in this area is that,
in response to market needs and the requirements of competi-
tion, it invested in the construction of an airslip technology casting
unit in its plant’s Cast House. This investment brought an impres-
sive improvement in the quality of the end product and reduced
stock by minimising the unusable part of each aluminium billet,
thus increasing the plant’s production flexibility.
In addition, the company has obtained the ISO 9001:2008 Quality
Certificate for its products, while its quality control laboratory has
been accredited by Hellenic Accreditation System S.A. (ESYD S.A.)
in accordance with the requirements of the ISO 17025:2005 Inter-
national Standard, for the chemical analysis of bauxite, alumina
(both hydrated and calcined), and of aluminium and its alloys. This
accreditation concerns the Quality Management System of the
Laboratory and its technical competencies and overall adequacy
for carrying out tests in the areas for which it has been accredited.

9.8 Strengthen Transparency
G4-SO3
In MYTILINEOS Group, promotion of transparency is driven by
a combination of three factors: (1) The Group’s corporate value
which refers to the “Principle of Integrity”, which is respected
across the Group’s Governance system and is implemented by
avoiding all transactions and contact with any third party which
may be guilty or suspect of encouraging conditions giving rise
to corruption; (2) the Group’s voluntary public commitment to
the 10th Principle of the UN Global Compact Initiative, according
to which “The Group works against corruption in all its forms,
including extortion and bribery”; and (3) the disclosure of the
Group’s Management Practice on strengthening transparency,
which is connected to the Group’s standing commitment to zero
tolerance of corruption and bribery.
2015 Highlights
• The Group completed the material for the 2nd edition of the
Professional Ethics Code, scheduled for publication in 2016,
providing for expanded coverage of the efforts for increased
transparency.
• In parallel, the Group continued to follow the procedures ap-
plied in the Purchases – Procurement Units of its subsidiaries,
with regard to checking the selection of business partners and
all types of transactions. In the context of these checks, no inci-
dents of corruption and bribery were identified.
9.9 Product Quality and Safety
MYTILINEOS Group complies fully with the national laws, the
international guidelines and industry standards applicable with
its activity sectors in relation with the design and production of
its products and the methods it employs for their promotion and
marketing. The Group places particular emphasis on the quality
of its materials, products and construction projects and applies
innovative production processes that improve the quality, safety
and environmental impacts of each product.
More specifically:
• the strict adherence to the laws and regulations,
• the principle that no product or construction project is released
from one production stage to the next unless the quality criteria
of the current stage have been fully satisfied,
• the strict application of the procedures under the EN ISO 9001
Quality Management System,
• the conduct of a Hazard & Operability (HAZOP) Study for oper-
ational risk analysis and the staffing of the Quality Control De-
partments with experienced personnel who are provided with
continuous training,
