Environmental Management System
We apply a certified Environmental Management System in all our branches and offices. Our Environmental Management System also covers 100% of our activities, with programmes and initiatives related to:
- Saving natural resources.
- Fighting climate change – Lowering greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
- Procuring environmentally friendly products.
- Minimising waste.
- Assessing environmental and social risks in relation to customer financing.
- Educating, informing and raising awareness among our employees.
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.
The Eurobank environmental management system also follows the guidelines of the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS), as developed by the European Commission. Our goal is to improve our environmental performance while also enhancing the transparency and credibility of our environmental management. We include this information in our Environmental Reports: 2021 I 2020 I 2019 I 2018 I 2017 I 2016 I 2015 I 2014 I 2013 I 2012 I 2011 I 2010
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 suitable water-saving measures.
Our actions comply with the local, national and international environmental laws and provisions.
Fighting climate change – Lowering greenhouse gas emissions
To minimise 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 GHG emissions, with the aim of reducing our carbon footprint.
