Compliance with the environmental legislation is a core priority of
MYTILINEOS Group and a major issue of equal importance with issues
such as personnel safety, quality, economic performance and customer
satisfaction, which the Group is managing in the context of its efforts for
continuous and responsible development.
This view, which also serves as the foundation of the Group's
environmental policy, aims to drive the continuous improvement of its
environmental performance and is based, first and foremost, on the
principle of adherence to the provisions of the law, as well as to the
agreements concluded and the commitments made both by MYTILINEOS
S.A. and its subsidiaries. To this end, the strict adherence to the
applicable laws and to the provisions of the regulatory framework, the
implementation of a regular environmental legislation review process
and the application of the environmental rules and regulations pertaining
to the Group's activities, resulted in the absence of any incidents involving
a deterioration in the quality of the environment during 2014.

EPC Projects Sector
,METKAS.A.doesnotmanageprimarynaturalre-
sources, but instead manages semi-finished or finished products, according
to the detailed plans/drawings and procedures for each project, which spec-
ify with great accuracy each material which will be used, its manufacturing
method and its exact position and operation. These plans/drawings and pro-
cedures represent the company’s know-how, which conforms to the latest
developments in the respective fields of expertise. The company’s activities
involve the use of complex materials/products such as turbines, power gen-
erators, pumps etc. for incorporation in its products/projects, together with
more simple ones such asmerchant bars (beams, pipes, steel plates, axles,
cast parts etc.) for manufacturing (cutting, welding, processing, hardening)
in its industrial facilities or in those of its subcontractors. The manufactured
products are then transported to the customer's facility / construction site,
where assembly/erection of the final product (e.g. a power plant) takes place.
The percentage of the use of recycledmaterials in the implementation proj-
ects in the EPC Projects Sector in 2014
stood at 35.7%
1
, up by 7 percentage
points from2013. Additionally, a key criterion in the design stage of the proj-
ects that METKA S.A. is carrying out as an EPC Contractor is the maximum
possible use of recyclable materials. The company’s requests for propos-
als and the contracts with suppliers of materials and equipment contain
a specific clause regarding their compliance with the requirements of the
ISO-14000 International Standard, specifically referring to the prohibition of
using environmentally hazardous materials and the obligation to make the
maximum possible use of recyclable materials.
In the
Energy Sector
, the raw material used in the Group's power plants
is natural gas, which cannot be recycled and is not a renewable source.
The reduction in the use of natural gas which can be seen in the table be-
low, as well as in the quantity of lubricant oils used by the thermal power
plants of PROTERGIA, compared to 2014, is due to the reduction in elec-
tricity production during 2014.

1 Of the 691 tons of total weight of materials used and incorporated in the end products of METKA S.A., steel in the form of plates or merchant bars
accounted for approximately 616.2 tons. Around 40% of the EU’s total steel production comes from electric arc furnaces, in which steel is produced from
100% recycled raw material (scrap). Thus, the recycled steel used in the company's projects is estimated at 247 tons (40% of 616.2 tons).
Group policy on responsible management
of raw and other materials:
-
responsible-management-of-waste
In 2014, approximately 2.16 million tons of raw materials (dry basis)
were used in the
Metallurgy & Mining sector
, a quantity only marginally
increased (by 0.27%) compared to 2013, due to the increase in aluminium
production. The specific consumption of raw materials per ton of
aluminium produced did not change. The aluminium production process
makes no use of recycled materials or alternative raw materials, i.e. by-
products and waste disposals from other industries, so as to allow any
reductions in the consumption of raw materials.
