Trade-offs (Financial Capital with the other categories of Capitals)

MYTILINEOS allocates its Financial Capital to its businesses, focusing on those areas it thinks offer the best prospects for growth and returns. The allocation of financial resources for the maintenance and modernization of industrial units and facilities contributes significantly to the enhancement of the value of the company's Industrial Capital, while the corresponding allocation of resources to education, development, remuneration and Health Safety of its employees is transformed into the value of Human Capital. Also, the company, investing part of its Financial Capital in stabilizing and minimizing its impact on the natural environment, returns part of the value of Natural Capital, which appears to be initially restricted, mainly due to the use of raw materials from non-renewable sources in its activity. Finally, MYTILINEOS allocates part of its financial resources to the implementation of its social policy, with direct beneficiaries the wider community thus increasing the value of its Social Capital, while the related investments in the expansion of its business activities add, in the long term, to the value created from the Financial Capital itself.

Industrial capital

The investments of MYTILINEOS in the modernisation of its Alumina & Aluminium production plants, the use of high-precision and highly effective machinery in the EPC & Infrastructure Unit, and the operation of RES-based power plants in conjunction with maintaining the high performance levels of the Company’s thermal plants, relying on making the best possible use of natural gas as fuel, enable the Company to transform the natural resources that it uses to high-value product flows and to ensure reliability in its operations. At the same time, MYTILINEOS applies innovative production processes, with a strong focus on quality control, operational improvements and safety, as well as on the environmental impacts of each final product or integrated construction project undertaken.

Use of capital

  • 25 Industrial production & Renewable Energy Sources(RES) plants
    • 5 Industrial plants (a bauxite mining plant, an alumina & an aluminum production plant, a complex construction plant and a steel processing plant
    • 3 Gas-fired thermal plants (a High Efficiency Combined Heat and Power Plant of primary electricity production (334 MW). And two Gas-fired Combined Cycle Thermal Power Plants of primary electricity production (881.08 MW).
    • 17 RES plants (10 Wind Farms, 3 Photovoltaic Parks & 4 Small Hydropower Plants).

Trade-offs (Industrial Capital with the other categories of Capitals

The utilisation of industrial units requires investments in installations and equipment, which are drawn from the company’s financial resources in the form of the funds allocated for this purpose. At the same time the Financial Capital value is enhanced by the income from the sales of the products obtained from the industrial production. The Industrial Capital impacts on the value of the Natural Capital, mainly using raw materials from non-renewable sources in the production process, while in the long term a part of this lost value is reduced by the company’s commitment to responsible consumption and production practices aimed at stabilising and improving the environmental performance of its industrial units. Investments in Industrial Capital help ensure the company’s compliance with the applicable legal and regulatory requirements: this has a positive impact on the Social Capital, as it enhances the company’s social license to operate, while it also affects positively its Human Capital, through the further development of the skills of employees, so that they can meet modern production process requirements.

In 66% of the MYTILINEOS business activity Sectors, an ISO 9001-2015 certified Quality System is implemented.

Natural capital

The business strategy of MYTILINEOS is inextricably linked to sustainable growth in the long-term. In line with this view, the Company regularly applies practices aimed at ensuring the continuous improvement of its environmental performance. Through investments that take advantage of technological advances, as well as through employee training, the development of Best Available Techniques, the change in the use of fuels and the setting of annual environmental targets, is gradually stabilising the impacts of its activity on the natural environment. To this end, the Company also implements environmental protection and industrial hazard control policies that are supported by a structured system of Environmental Management practices and methods certified in accordance with the ISO 140001 and ISO 14064 International Standards in 100% and 33% of its business units, respectively. In this respect, a uniform system for information collection and reporting, environmental impact assessments and target-setting for continuous improvement is applied in all related activities of the Company.

Use of capital

  • Raw & other materials
  • Land use
  • Water (withdrawal & consumption)
  • Air

Trade-offs (Natural Capital with the other categories of Capitals)

The use of raw materials from non-renewable sources, air emissions and waste production, in the context of the MYTILINEOS activities, restrict the stock of value of the Natural Capital. MYTILINEOS, in order to minimize its impact on the natural environment, alongside its certified environmental management system, promotes the implementation of best available techniques in all its Business Sectors. This practice requires financial resources that, in the short-term, seems to reduce the Financial Capital while at the same time it strengthens the value of the Social Capital by ensuring the maintenance of the environmental permits as well as the social acceptance of the company’s operation. Moreover, by converting the elements of the natural capital into value-added products, MYTILINEOS boosts the value stock of the Financial and Human Capital.

RESEARCH & INNOVATION

2017 saw the launch of the research project SCALE (Production of Scandium compounds and Scandium-Aluminum alloys from European resources), whose aim is to obtain Rare Earths and, in particular, Scandium (Sc) compounds and Scandium-Aluminum alloys from residues of the European metallurgical industry, such as Bauxite Residues. The project has a total budget of €7 million and is coordinated by the Metallurgy Business Unit of MYTILINEOS. The project consortium, which also includes the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), consists of a total of 19 partners from nine European countries. The project plan foresees the construction and operation, in the Metallurgy Business Unit’s industrial site, of a prototype Scandium leaching and extraction pilot plant which will produce Scandium concentrate for further utilisation in a pilot plant of another project partner.

In 66% of the MYTILINEOS Business Activity Sectors, an ISO 14001-2015 certified Management System, is implemented.

Human capital

MYTILINEOS always treats its people with responsibility and consistency, so as to remain their first choice of employer during their entire career paths. Factors such as Health and Safety at the workplace, the development of diverse skills, performance reviews, training and career development as well as the transfer of know-how to direct and indirect employees, are common goals that are shared by all Company’s Business Sectors, strengthening its capacity to achieve the desired financial and non-financial results.

  • Employees abilities and capabilities

Trade-offs (Human Capital with the other categories of Capitals)

MYTILINEOS employees constitute the key element of the value produced by the company throughout its business activity. The company invests part of the value of its Financial Capital on the wages & benefits, Health & Safety, education & professional development of its employees. In parallel, the use of the employees’ skills in the production process increases the efficiency and, therefore, the value created by the Industrial Capital. The investments in Health & Safety at the workplace and therefore the protection of the right of direct and indirect employees to work without exposing themselves to imminent risk of injury or illness, increase the value created by the Human Capital itself but also the value stock of the Company’s Social Capital. Moreover, the Company’s Human Resources Management policy contributes to the value stock of the Financial Capital in the long term, by keeping the employees Injury and Turnover Rates at very low levels, thus avoiding costly accidents as well as the costs of replacing and training specialised employees.

In 100% of the MYTILINEOS Business Activity Sectors, an OHSAS 18001 certified Health & Safety Management System, is implemented.

Social Capital

From its establishment to this day, the history of MYTILINEOS has been interwoven with the economic growth of Greece and especially of the country’s regions. The continuous development of the Company’s relations with the local communities where it has an active presence, is a catalyst for the implementation of its Social policy. In all cases, the Company remains unequivocally committed to understanding and responding to the concerns of local communities through the open dialogue processes that it follows, and to building, through joint efforts, partnerships that yield multiple benefits, create added value and strengthen social cohesion

Use of capital

  • Stakeholders Relations
  • Social Contribution Program
  • Disclosure Policy
  • MYTILINEOS’s Reputation

Trade-offs (Social Capital with the other categories of Capitals)

MYTILINEOS social investments which are addressed to its local communities as well as to the society at large, in the form of sponsorships, donations, support for the development of local infrastructures and the implementation of social programmes, may reduce, in the short term, the Company’s Financial Capital, but in the longer term enable growth in this capital stock. The relations of MYTILINEOS with local government, investors, regulatory authorities and its other Stakeholder groups, affect directly or indirectly its image and reputation. These relations, which are characterised by a variety of partnership forms and are dictated by the social and economic conditions that apply in each particular case, are vital for all the Capital Categories employed by the Company, contributing to the effective operation of its business model and to the continuous renewal of its social license to operate.

Significant distinctions

MYTILINEOS was ranked a “Sustainability Leader for 2017”, at the top tier of the Sustainable Performance Directory, the Sustainable Development Business Index for Greek enterprises, together with six other companies from among a total of 50. The Sustainable Development Directory is part of the SUSTAINABLE GREECE 2020 initiative. The companies that distinguished themselves in the evaluation and ranking process are the companies that follow a comprehensive approach to Sustainable Development and to the disclosure of non-financial information required under the national regulatory framework.
