Environmental & Social Policy
The Management of Fraport Greece has adopted an integrated Environmental & Social Policy for all our business units (headquarters and airports), having defined environmental and social protection as one of our main company goals. Environmental & Social Protection is the responsibility of all employees who need to realize the importance of their duties, take active participation in meeting the common goals and willingly commit to the results of their activities. In this context:
- we are managing, operating and developing our units in an environmentally and socially responsible way in compliance with the applicable laws, regulations and other commitments;
- we are promoting greater environmental and social responsibility by training our employees and providing awareness programs for all concerned parties;
- we support a precautionary approach to environmental and social challenges in respect of cost-effectiveness, economic viability and sustainability;
- we encourage the development and dissemination of environmentally and socially friendly practices and technologies by applying environmental and social criteria when selecting goods and services;
- we engage in a regular dialogue with our community stakeholder groups and we incorporate their concerns and points of view in our corporate decision-making process. We communicate closely with our partners in the air transport value chain and work together to develop joint strategies and concepts directed towards continual improvement of environmental performance.
To meet our goals and targets towards sustainability we focus on the following key aspects:
- Nature and biodiversity protection;
- Wildlife trafficking prevention;
- Resource use and waste minimization;
- Waste management (hazardous, non-hazardous);
- Wastewater management;
- Energy management, carbon emissions and climate change;
- Pollution prevention and emergency response;
- Noise management and control;
- Traffic management.
In the framework of the climate change aspect, we engage to manage and reduce our carbon emissions. In order to achieve this goal we calculate and report the direct and indirect Greenhouse Gas Emissions from all the emission sources in the airports’ boundaries, based on the GHG Protocol (scope 1 and 2).
Occupational Health and Safety Policy
The following policy is applied upon performance of the following company activities:
- The Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) is a leading concern of the Management of Fraport Greece, which will use management reports to receive information on whether the OHS goals have been met, on their performance and how well the OHS measures have been organized. This includes assessment of information from the analysis of necessary key indicators.
- Fraport Greece develops suitable concepts for long-term development of the OHS management system based on innovative approach, creativity and business knowledge.
- Our employees shall be informed, trained and motivated regarding the OHS risks related to their tasks in a way that they take active participation in the achievement of goals within their everyday duties. The operative managers should set an example for this.
- All hazards relevant to our activities are identified, assessed and controlled to ensure the health, safety and welfare of employees and others who may be affected by our operations, with priority to the prevention of injury and ill health.
- The crucial conditions for founding a safe process towards high OHS state include the exchange of information and communication between the operative managers, the company departments and sections, our employees and any Second and Third party operating in our units. The employees are invited to propose eventual management improvements.
