Environmental management system
The Eurobank environmental management system follows the guidelines of the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS), as developed by the European Commission. With this system:
- We manage properly all environmental issues that may arise from the operation of Eurobank.
- We follow the Eurobank Environmental Policy in all our operations.
To this end we set specific environmental objectives. We undertake environmental initiatives to achieve these. We monitor and measure our environmental performance using specific procedures. We include this information in our Environmental Reports: 2017 I 2016 I 2015 I 2014 I 2013 I 2012 I 2011 I 2010
We received the European Award at the 2011 EMAS Awards for our environmental management.
Saving natural resources
To monitor and improve our environmental performance, we try to use natural resources as efficiently as possible. In our day-to-day operations at Eurobank we save:
- Energy, with the Eurobank Energy Management System.
- Water, with the Eurobank Water Management Programme.
Our initiatives comply with the local, national and international environmental laws and provisions.
Eurobank received the National Award at the 2010 EMAS Awards for its resource efficiency.
To limit our contribution to the greenhouse effect and climate change, we record and allocate the energy we use during our operation. We calculate our direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions.

We are aware of the direct environmental effects that stem from our financing and investing activities. To limit them, we have mechanisms in place to identify and manage environmental and social risks.
Ongoing environmental awareness
We try to raise awareness for the environment and sustainability among our employees, as well as our shareholders, our suppliers and our society.
