The main axis of MYTILINEOS’ Environmental Policy is the application of Best Available Techniques in the production process regarding the control, continuous reduction, and proper management of solid and liquid waste through recovery, reuse and recycling techniques, where feasible.
MYTILINEOS fully complies and operates in accordance with the licensing acts of the Region of Central Greece, the Regional Unit of Viotia and the Environmental Terms Approval Decision regarding the management of specific types of waste, which is deposited in a special Bauxite Waste Disposal Site and taken into account during the measurement of the Company's environmental footprint.
Also, the Company seeks the continuous improvement of its ISO14001 certified Environmental Management Systems and the implementation of the guidelines of the ISO 14040 and 14044 international standards as necessary for the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) study, as this is factor that can contribute effectively to enhancing its competitiveness.
A key environmental risk for the Company is the gradual reduction of available bauxite residue disposal sites, which may result in negative social and economic impacts for the Company.
MYTILINEOS’ Metallurgy Business Unit is responsible for 99% of the Company's total waste, however the Company seeks to ensure the proper management of all solid and liquid waste.
