Sustainable Development Strategy

Sustainable Development is an integral part of the MYTILINEOS long-term business strategy. It is the driving force through which the Company aspires to remain competitive in the long term, to meet contemporary challenges and, by developing appropriate partnerships, to contribute to a new and efficient model of socially inclusive growth, as this is reflected in the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Company's Sustainable Development Strategy is aimed at creating long-term and sustainable value for shareholders and other Stakeholder groups, through a holistic approach that combines economic stability with social and environmental sustainability. It is implemented on three basic levels that are inseparable from one another, and is governed by specific Principles that ensure completeness (Materiality Principle), quality (Stakeholder Inclusiveness Principle) and transparency (Accountability Principle) across all its activities.

More specifically:

The first level expresses the Company's commitment to tackling climate change and its contribution to a low-emissions economy. MYTILINEOS is fully aware that climate change is one of the most urgent issues facing the planet. Moreover, the Company, considering the high CO2 emission intensity in its production processes, has highlighted the adaptation of its activities to the consequences of climate change and the implementation of initiatives to address it, as key elements for its sustainable operation. In this respect, it has designed a local strategy to address climate change, which serves to guide its initiatives to reduce carbon dioxide emissions as defined by the Kyoto Protocol, the Paris Agreement on Climate Change (COP21) and the corresponding National Plan of Greece, which sets out its contribution to the European Green Deal (EU Green Deal).

Strategic priorities

  • To further adapt its activity to the consequences of climate change by analyzing the risks involved, while also taking advantage of the opportunities arising.

The second level focuses on MYTILINEOS’ systematic approach to the recording, optimal management and disclosure of information about the ESG risks and opportunities that may affect its performance, as well as its efforts to implement its strategy. Through the ESG approach, MYTILINEOS strengthens its ability to create long-term value and manage significant changes in the environment in which it operates. In this way, it responds to the current sustainability requirements of investors, capital markets and financial institutions, as well as to society's expectations of commitment and transparency regarding these issues, which keep increasing.

Strategic priorities

  • To determine Material ESG topics and link them to the Company's financial performance.

For MYTILINEOS, Responsible Entrepreneurship is an ongoing self-improvement and incessant learning process, while it also serves as a key mechanism for renewing its "social license to operate", while at the same time it helps improve its competitiveness at national and international level.

Strategic priorities

MYTILINEOS’ contribution to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030)

The adoption of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by all UN member states in 2015 is a milestone for the international community. These are universal goals, to the achievement of which not only all developed and developing countries, but also businesses, the academic community, NGOs and citizens' organizations, are invited to contribute, by joining forces. For Greece, the SDGs represent a major opportunity for its recovery and transition to a new growth model, with an emphasis on all three main pillars, the environment, society and the economy, as they focus on "leaving no one behind" and on eliminating inequalities of all kinds.

Since 2016, MYTILINEOS, applying the UN "SDG Compass Tool", has specified their relevance to its business activity and has identified ways to contribute to their achievement, acknowledging its share of the responsibility to do so. Since then, it has consistently contributed to the achievement of 40 specific SDG Targets (sub-targets), based on the overall approach outlined below:


MYTILINEOS believes that the recovery of the economy and of employment, especially in the post COVID-19 era, can only take place through the transition to a new socio-economic model that will be climate-neutral, resilient, sustainable and inclusive. In this respect, and in line with its activity, the Company has highlighted SDG 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy) and SDG 13 (Climate Action) as its key strategic priorities, carrying out an ambitious RES investment plan and taking concrete initiatives to reduce CO2 emissions by 30% until 2030 and achieve a net zero footprint, by 2050.


As a leading international industrial and energy company, MYTILINEOS invests in the circular economy, in the development of innovative waste recovery methods and in the application of "clean" industrial methods, through its participation in 24 europan research projects.

At the same time, it steadily enhances employability in the domestic industrial sector and creates the conditions for a responsible supply chain, in all areas of its business activity. In this way, it acknowledges its share of the relevant responsibility and is actively contributing to SDG 9 (Industry Innovation & Infrastructure) and SDG 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production).


In terms of its contribution to SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being) and SDG 8 (Decent work and economic growth), MYTILINEOS promotes and ensures safe and healthy work conditions for its human resources, adopting a prevention oriented approach.

Almost all of its production units have in place ISO 45001:2018 certified Occupational Health & Safety management systems, while at the same time since the COVID-19 threat was first identified, MYTILINEOS has implemented a multifaceted action plan that focuses on protecting its employees and their families, ensuring its uninterrupted operation.

The Company, in parallel to its financial growth, continues the integration of policies and practices to enhance full and productive employment, through the creation of decent jobs for all.


MYTILINEOS, as it develops, strengthens the culture in its work environment with policies and practices that enhance equal opportunities, the respect for Human Rights, and the promotion of gender equality. In this way, the Company enhances the participation of women at all levels of the Company’s hierarchy, the inclusion of young workers, <30 years, in its workforce as well as its effort to integrate people with disabilities into the labor market, contributing directly to SDG 5 (Gender Equality) and 10 (Reduced Inequalities).


As part of the Company's commitment to further reduce its environmental footprint, Best Available Techniques for the proper management and reduction of environmental impacts are implemented at each Business Unit.

Investments are being made in order to upgrade the production process utilizing new technologies, while almost all Company production units have in place ISO 14001:2015 certified integrated environmental management systems as well as individual environmental rehabilitation plans for exploitable land areas, where necessary, thus contributing directly to SDG 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation), SDG 14 (Life below Water) and SDG 15 (Life on Land).


MYTILINEOS indirectly contributes to the other SDGs, by consistently implementing its social policy through actions and initiatives that enhance its harmonious coexistence with its local communities as well as with society at large.

Targeting 250,000 beneficiaries of our social policy for the five-year period 2020-2025, we continue to invest in the development of the local employment and economy through the creation of jobs (SDG 1) and the strengthening of local suppliers and local infrastructure (SDG 11), in the reduction of food insecurity for vulnerable social groups (SDG 2), and in the implementation of training programs in new technologies at schools, together with programs for the development of the professional skills of the young generation (SDG 4).
