We operate responsibly with regard to the environment and the use of natural resources. We have pledged to undertake actions and develop initiatives to protect the environment and reduce our environmental footprint. In the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Paris Agreement on Climate (2015) and the European Green Deal (2019), monitoring international developments, improving the Group’s environmental performance and identifying the risks and opportunities arising from climate change, are all key areas for enhancing our environmental policy.

It spares no efforts in undertaking initiatives to further promote environmental responsibility and encourages the development and dissemination of environmentally friendly technologies aiming to achieve the energy-green transition.
Significantly, PPC’s environmental strategy has been harmonized with the European Union’s and the Country’s ambitious mid-term and long-term goals for achieving climate neutrality by 2050.
