We have placed paper recycling bins in all the Eurobank branches and offices throughout Greece.
- We collect paper to be recycled in the bins.
- We recycle the paper through licensed recycling contractors approved by the Greek Ministry of Environment and Energy or through the municipal recycling system.
In 2021 in partnership with the contractors, we recycled 166,724 kg of paper or 79.68% of our annual paper supplies.
Electrical and electronic equipment

In all the Eurobank offices and branches, we collect all empty ink cartridges. We deliver them to companies offering managed print services. They then forward them to companies approved by the Greek Ministry of Environment and Energy for recycling.

We recycle light bulbs through technical service companies. These companies collect and forward used light bulbs to licensed recycling companies.
There are light bulb collection points in the Eurobank administration buildings. Fotokiklosi SA is a company that collects and recycles light bulbs.
