Piraeus Bank is a pioneer in supporting and funding investments aimed at environmentally and socially responsible actions, just as it has been a leader in managing its environmental impacts. In this context and fully respecting its commitment to support Green Business, the Bank has created a series of green banking products and advisory services, supporting investors through the Green Banking Advisor at all branch network.
The knowhow and expertise that has been acquired in green business allows the Bank to provide full support to investors and guidance at each step of their investment, from setting the initial steps of the investment plan and the necessary licensing procedure to the project realisation.
As a result of these actions the emission of 1.5 million tons of CO2 has been prevented through the 2014 funding of green business.
Aiming to strengthen green business, a Green Banking Advisor has been appointed to the Bank branches in Greece for more effective promotion of green products and services. Piraeus Bank’s green products provide financial support to projects such as renewable energy sources, energy-saving, green transport, alternative waste management, organic farming, ecotourism-agrotourism, thereby indirectly resolving multiple environmental problems, such as those of climate change, depletion of natural resources as well as water and land pollution. Furthermore, four Green Banking Advisors have been placed in 42 of the existing network branches in Greece, providing even more specialized advisory services to professionals and individuals interested in reducing their environmental and carbon footprint, their operational costs and, ultimately, in protecting the environment through their business activity.
