Eurobank EFG wins the biggest European award for Eco-Management

Eurobank EFG won the national award EMAS 2009 (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) for Greece, in the European EMAS Awards, organized each year by the European Commission. The aim of this institution is to highlight and reward European companies that follow advanced environmental policies. It is the highest distinction in environmental management a European organization can obtain.




The competition theme for 2009 was the Supply Chain including Green Procurement. Specifically, it examined the practices applied by businesses on the management of the policy and "green" profile of their procurement and their overall relationships with their suppliers, to meet international standards on green policies.




32 companies from 12 European Union countries participated in the competition. These companies had been qualified by the relevant official bodies of the countries in the national competitions that preceded the European. The choice of Eurobank to represent Greece was made by the Ministry of Environment. Eurobank EFG is the only Greek bank registered in the European Register of Businesses applying the EMAS Regulation among the 69 EMAS certified organizations in all sectors.




The bank won first place in the category "Investor in Environment" for its long-term social responsibility campaign "Crystal Clear Pancharevo" at BBLF Sixth Annual Awards for Socially Responsible Business 2009.
