Piraeus Bank applies a green procurement policy since 2005. More specifically, the Bank selects environmentally-friendly products (chlorine free FSC1 paper, recycled consumables, light bulbs, replacement of company fleet with low fuel-consumption vehicles, gradual replacement of electric and electronic equipment with energy-efficient appliances) which contribute to, among others, reducing the environmental footprint and awareness-raising of employees about green supplies.
Since 2015, Piraeus Bank uses paper certified under FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) for the documents to be sent to customers (account statements, loan statements, notice letters, transactions confirmations, stock exchange statements, trade order confirmations).
In 2017, 74% of the total amount of paper consumed is eco-label or FSC.
ΟElectrical and electronic equipment (screens, laptops and refurbished computers) are gradually being replaced with energy-efficient appliances ("energy star" label). The rating company “oekom research” graded Piraeus Bank with A+, for its IT procurements.
1 FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®): Its mission is to promote environmentally responsible, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests.
