For​ ​the​ ​6th​ ​consecutive​ ​year,​ ​V​ ​Group​ ​has​ ​achieved​ ​net​ ​zero​ ​across​ ​all​ ​its​ ​companies,​ ​including​ ​Antipollution.​ ​Guided​ ​by​ ​our​ ​strategy​ ​for​ ​sustainable​ ​development​ ​and​ ​designed​ ​in​ ​compliance​ ​with​ ​the​ ​Paris​ ​Agreement​ ​and​ ​the​ ​European​ ​Green​ ​Agreement,​ ​our​ ​2021​ ​carbon​ ​footprint​ ​has​ ​been​ ​certified​ ​and​ ​all​ ​air​ ​emissions​ ​offset.

V​ ​Group​ ​continues​ ​to​ ​honour​ ​its​ ​commitment​ ​to​ ​promote​ ​green​ ​energy​ ​and​ ​reduce​ ​its​ ​carbon​ ​footprint​ ​by​ ​implementing​ ​measures​ ​to​ ​further​ ​reduce​ ​energy​ ​and​ ​fuel​ ​consumption,​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​initiating​ ​renewable​ ​energy​ ​projects.

An​ ​early​ ​pioneer​ ​in​ ​the​ ​fight​ ​against​ ​climate​ ​change,​ ​the​ ​Group​ ​has​ ​this​ ​year​ ​invested​ ​in​ ​a​ ​hydroelectric​ ​project​ ​in​ ​the​ ​suburb​ ​of​ ​Gansu​ ​in​ ​China,​ ​with​ ​net​ ​electricity​ ​generated​ ​of​ ​more​ ​than​ ​195GWh,​ ​contributing​ ​to​ ​a​ ​total​ ​saving​ ​of​ ​170,000​ ​tonnes​ ​of​ ​CO2​ ​equivalent​ ​emissions.

‘We​ ​are​ ​among​ ​the​ ​pioneering​ ​Greek​ ​Groups​ ​that,​ ​in​ ​addition​ ​to​ ​their​ ​contractual​ ​obligations,​ ​adopt​ ​the​ ​practice​ ​of​ ​accounting​ ​and​ ​offsetting​ ​the​ ​CO2​ ​emissions​ ​produced​ ​by​ ​their​ ​activities,​ ​true​ ​to​ ​our​ ​commitment​ ​to​ ​address​ ​climate​ ​change​ ​and​ ​our​ ​vision​ ​for​ ​a​ ​sustainable​ ​future.​ ​Employees,​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​the​ ​Group’s​ ​partners​ ​and​ ​customers,​ ​but​ ​also​ ​the​ ​wider​ ​civil​ ​society,​ ​have​ ​increased​ ​expectations​ ​from​ ​companies​ ​operating​ ​in​ ​the​ ​field​ ​of​ ​environmental​ ​protection​ ​and​ ​it​ ​is​ ​always​ ​a​ ​pleasure​ ​and​ ​an​ ​honour​ ​for​ ​us​ ​to​ ​justify​ ​these​ ​expectations​ ​and​ ​to​ ​lead​ ​the​ ​way​ ​towards​ ​change​ ​and​ ​sustainability​ ​through​ ​our​ ​strategic​ ​decisions.’​ ​ Natassa​ ​Triantafyllidou,​ ​Climate​ ​Change​ ​&​ ​Sustainability​ ​Manager,​ ​V​ ​Group.
