Environmental Footprint

A necessary precondition for sound environmental management at Piraeus Bank is the measurement and continuous monitoring of its environmental impacts. Environmental impacts are also defined as the Bank’s “footprint” on the environment, which is affected through the consumption of natural resources, the emission of greenhouse gasses, waste disposal etc.
Energy Consumption The assessment of the operational environmental aspects indicates that the most important environmental impact of the Bank is due to electricity consumption. For this reason, Piraeus Bank designs and implements various environmental projects, aimed at reducing the total electricity consumption. These projects, combined with other pilot programs, proved particularly effective.
Electricity Consumption (GWh) - Electricity Consumption per surface (kWh/m^2)

Resources Consumption The constant decrease that has been observed in the past years in the consumption of paper, ink cartridges and toners, reflects to a large extent, the improvement in the environmental behavior of the Bank’s employees.
