Actual positive impacts
Managing emergencies and ensuring business continuity is a top priority for MYTILINEOS. Therefore, appropriate Emergency Prevention and Response Plans are implemented in all Business Units of the Company, which are intended to effectively manage emergencies, at all levels, for the protection of the natural environment and social welfare at local and national levels.
Potential negative impacts
Failure to adequately address relevant risks can have negative impacts on employees, the local community, the natural environment, and the smooth operation of the Company's business and, by extension, on its reputation, as well as financial results.
A key risk for the Company is the low level of preparedness and response to emergencies (fires, explosions, land subsidence, release of chemicals into the environment, product transportation, waste, natural hazards, such as weather and earthquake events, health and safety incidents and other hazards).
Appropriate Emergency Prevention and Response Plans (for fire, explosion, leakage, natural phenomena, extreme weather, etc.) are implemented in all Business Units of the Company, to effectively manage all identified incidents that result in disruption of smooth operation, with severe impacts on the environment, the Health & Safety of employees and local communities in general.
