TITAN received the first Award in the Process category the national leg of the 2013-2014 European Business Awards for the Environment, in recognition of its ongoing commitment to the environment through specialised and focused actions that promote sustainable development. TITAN excels in the utilisation of secondary fuels and alternative raw materials in the cement production process, aiming at a decrease in the use of non-renewable natural resources and a reduction of greenhouse emissions, while also significantly contributing to an efficient “circular economy”.

“TITAN is the first Greek cement industry to have successfully utilised alternative raw materials and secondary fuels for cement production. Every year, we use approximately 600,000 tons of by-products and save more than 60,000 tons of CO2. This award serves as an acknowledgment of our efforts”, said Alexandros Katsiamboulas, Environmental Senior Manager, Cement Division-Greece.

TITAN also received a no classification distinction in the “Biodiversity” category, in acknowledgement of its targeted actions to protect the biodiversity in the areas where it operates. TITAN applies advanced practices to restore the natural environment of the quarries and takes special measures to preserve the flora & fauna. At the same time, it develops and implements integrated studies in line with international standards and tools, thereby contributing to the implementation of the recently announced Greek National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan.
