Business Continuity

Sustainable development challenges

The development of the capacity of an organization to ensure the uninterrupted supply of products / services (without affecting their quality / availability) in emergency situations, such as e.g. natural disasters, epidemic / pandemic crisis or other adverse events (and combinations thereof) as well as issues of internal operation & organization such as e.g. shutdown of critical IT applications, failures of suppliers / subcontractors, shortages of human resources, etc.


Ensuring business continuity, protection of the environment and health and safety in case of emergency, in accordance with the main axes of the Occupational Health and Safety Policy and the Environmental Policy of MYTILINEOS.

Major risks

A low degree of preparedness and response to emergency incidents (fires, explosions, land subsidence, release of chemicals to the environment, transportation of products, waste, natural hazards such as climatic and seismic events, health and safety incidents and other hazards), may have serious consequences on the employees, the local community and the natural environment but also on the smooth operation of the MYTILINEOS activities and thereby its reputation and its financial results.

Management / Control practices

As management of emergency incidents is a top priority for MYTILINEOS, appropriate Emergency Prevention and Response Plans (for fire, explosion, leakages, natural phenomena, extreme weather conditions etc.) are applied in all Business Units of the Company, in order to deal effectively with all incidents that result in deviations from their normal operation with potential serious consequences for the environment and for the health and safety of employees and the local communities.

  • In the Metallurgy Business Unit, an Emergency Response System has been developed in the facilities of Ag. Nikolaos, Viotia, including an integrated Internal Emergency Plan (IEP) which also includes special evacuation plans of the facilities, systematic training of personnel, and planning and implementation of emergency preparedness exercises in accordance with the annual plan.

  • At the Sustainable Engineering Solutions and Renewables & Storage Development Business Units, each construction site has its own emergency plan, appropriate to the nature of its activities and to the risks identified and assessed. The emergency plans are documented, accessible and clearly communicated to all personnel, who are trained to understand these plans and to thoroughly familiarize themselves with their roles and responsibilities in the event of an emergency.
