GRI 300

It should be noted that the published indices for 2021 have not been finalized yet and they might change, as the final internal confirmation and the independent limited assurance from an external consultant are still in progress. Any changes that might arise will be clearly indicated (including what changed and when).

GRI-303-5 Water consumption


Water consumption (million m3)*

Recycling** %

Lignite Steam Power Plants



Lignite Center of West Macedonia



Natural Gas



Steam Power Plants/ Autonomous Power Plants/ Non-Interconnected System






* Water consumption = Total volume of water pumped - Total volume of water discharged
** % Recycling = (Total volume of water recycled and reused / Total volume of water pumped) * 100


GRI 304-1 Operational sites owned, leased, managed in, or adjacent to, protected areas and areas of high biodiversity value outside protected areas

The areas in which PPC's mining activity is developed are not included in the NATURA 2000 network or in other protected areas. The Company's hydroelectric installations located within protected areas (according to the Ministry's NATURA maps) cover an area of 78.29 km2.

Sustainability Report p. 180

It should be noted that PPC projects existed long before the establishment of Natura 2000 sites. The pan-European Natura 2000 network, for the protection of species and their habitats, was established in 1992 with the adoption of Directive 92/43 / EEC. The national list of areas of the European Ecological Network Natura 2000 was revised with JMD 50743/2017 (Government Gazette 4432 / Β / 15-12-2017). Therefore, what is protected today are the ecosystems that were formed by the construction of hydroelectric projects (dams, artificial lakes, etc.) of PPC in combination with the operation of hydroelectric plants over the years.
