Corporate Social Responsibility Governance System

The management of the issues related to responsible entrepreneurship is a responsibility shared by all senior and top Management Executives of MYTILINEOS Group and covers all policies adopted and all actions taken in order to fulfil the expectations of Stakeholders, over and above the Group’s legal and regulatory obligations. The integration of this system into the organisational structure of MYTILINEOS Group companies relies on a uniform set of procedures and on a specific reporting hierarchy, designed to overcome any obstacles which might result from the particular characteristics of each one of the Group’s individual activity sectors. http://www.mytilineos.gr/en-us/csr-governance/info 

The goals of the CSR Governance system are thw following:

1. To highlight the scope and breadth of the relevant concepts, with the ultimate goal of preventing business, social and environmental risks;

2. To identify and implement policies and initiatives that will substantially contribute to the achievement of Sustainable Development;

3. To balance the economic, social and environmental implications of the Group's business activities, while generating value for the Shareholders and all other Stakeholder groups in general.

The proper functioning of the CSR Governance System contributes significantly to the value creation for all groups of Mytilineos Group Stakeholders.
