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 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.

1. Values reported according to GHG Protocol location-based method. Corresponding value for PPC according to market-based method is 334.728,24 t CO2eq. Values for Lignitiki Megalopolis and Lignitiki Melitis are identical for both methods
2. Emissions from this category are related to consumption of imported forms of energy other than electricity (e.g. steam, heating, cooling and compressed air). No such consumption was recorded in 2020.

3. Indirect emissions from production, transport and use of fuels for the production of the electricity purchased by the company for resale are taken as zero for 2021 as the emissions from the electricity supply activity are smaller than the emissions from the activity of electricity production included in Scope 1.
4. For Lignitiki Melitis and Lignitiki Megalopolis emissions from all employees’ transportation are included. For PPC, only the emissions from the transportation of employees to most of the Electricity Generating Stations are included.
5. Based on the Operational Control approach used for inventories, the emissions from fuel consumption in leased properties and vehicles are included in Scopes 1 and 2.
6. There is no activity in this category for Lignitiki Melitis.
7. For PPC and Lignitiki Megalopolis emissions from this category are related to the possible treatment of fly ash before its use in the cement industry. It was found that no such treatment exists.
8. Emissions from leased assets and investments were not examined.
9. There is no activity in this category.
