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

* systematic and operational integration of all 6 banks

Electricity Consumption per surface

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.
Paper Consumption

* systematic and operational integration of all 6 banks

Green procurement Piraeus Bank has integrated green criteria in its procurement policy, since almost all requirements in A3 and A4 paper are covered by recycled and chlorine free paper; the fleet of corporate vehicles is being replaced with low fuel- consumption vehicles, while electrical and electronic equipment is gradually being replaced with low energy- consumption devices.
