ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

Accordingly, the Company’s management and employees undertake to promote implementation of environmental processes and technologies of recycling, increasing energy efficiency and minimizing environmental emissions, and acting for the constant improvement of the processes in the power station and the Company’s environmental performance. The Company undertakes to implement this policy in several ways:

  • In the operation of the power station and its various facilities and in the planning of new facilities, the Company is working to constantly reduce the environmental impact of its operations, including adoption of the best proven and cost-effective technologies.
  • Reducing the byproducts of the power station, and reducing pollutants in wastewater, air emissions and solid waste.
  • Intelligent use and savings of water, out of recognition of the importance of this public resource.
  • Applying systems to improve safety and environmental protection at the power station and taking corrective measures as needed.
  • Complying fully with the regulations and legal requirements to prevent and limit the environmental impact of the power station, by setting internal procedures and standards within the company.
