The company is aiming for carbon neutral operations within 2020 in support of the Paris Climate Agreement and the UN Sustainability Goals.
Corinth Pipeworks will implement important initiatives for a low carbon future by exclusively using green electricity.
The company has signed an agreement with the Public Power Corporation (PPC) – a leading power generation and supply company in Greece – to ensure 100 per cent of its electricity needs originate from renewable energy.
The agreement concerns the year 2019 and its steel pipe manufacturing facility in Thisvi, Greece, supplying pipes to the oil and gas and construction sectors.
Additionally, Corinth Pipeworks will continue to improve its energy efficiency with an energy management system certified according to ISO 50001:2011.
The company will also follow initiatives to reduce the remaining portion of its energy consumption to reduce and offset its carbon footprint.
Corinth Pipeworks said the pathway to being carbon neutral will include the implementation of management system for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions according to international standard ISO 14064:2018, the planning and implementation of carbon reduction actions and eventually, the “carbon neutral” certification (GHG scope 1 & 2).
