In the context of its total strategy for the environment and also as proof of the commitment to actively addressing the issue of climate change, ION performed in 2019 a full measurement of greenhouse gas emissions connected with its operations and activities. ION carried out the necessary measurements at the facilities in Neo Faliro, Mesogaia-Markopoulos, Pallini and Arta, in accordance with the international standards, with guidance by the Centre for Sustainable Development (CSE) and First Climate organization.
These measurements involved all aspects of its business operations, such as the consumption of electricity for the operation of buildings, the consumption of natural resources for production lines, energy expenditure for employee transportation, and even flights for corporate purposes and paper consumption in our offices. The primary goal was to establish an official record of measurements, which would be certified by an official independent authority, in order to set a reference basis for future measures whose aim will be to minimise greenhouse gas emissions. The effort to minimise the ecological footprint of its corporate activities and protect the environment and natural resources remains a daily and ongoing quest.
