Based upon Eurus Energy Group’s corporate philosophy and Ethic Standards, Helping to Preserve the Global Environment by Disseminating and Expanding Clean Energy Technologies, Eurus Energy Europe B.V. and its affiliates in Europe (“Eurus Energy Europe”) are committed to further promoting sustainability.

Eurus Energy Europe promotes good sustainability practices to reduce the environmental impact of all our activities and to help our stakeholders to do the same.

Principles

Our Sustainability Policy is based upon the following principles:

  •  To foster the development of renewable projects as our core business in Europe,
  • To operate and maintain always to achieve the highest performance of each renewable project
  • To ensure that the management and all staff are fully aware of our Sustainability Policy and are committed to implementing and improving it
  • To minimise the environmental impact of all our activities
  • To make stakeholders aware of our Sustainability Policy, and encourage them to also adopt sustainable management practices
  • To review, annually report, and to continually improve our sustainability performance
  • To become a leading sustainable company

Practical steps

In order to put these principles into practice we will:

-Core businesses

  • Aim to become a leading sustainable company
  • Promote and accelerate the development of renewable energy projects across Europe
  • Construct, operate and maintain our projects in an environmentally friendly manner

-Commute, Travel and meetings

  • Promote to walk, cycle and/or use public transport to commute to the office, attend meetings, site visits etc…
  • Business trips abroad shall be undertaken by train, unless the additional travel time compared to flying is more than 1.5 hour
  • Reduce travelling where alternatives are available and practical, such as using teleconferencing, and improve travel efficiency by combining multiple trips

-Purchase of office equipment and consumption of office resources

  • Minimise our use of paper and other office consumables
  • Reduce our use of plastic to zero
  • Sort all office waste as paper, plastic, printer cartridges
  • Reduce the energy consumption by purchasing energy efficient office equipment and promoting eco-friendly gestures
  • Purchase renewable electricity where possible

-Working practices

  • Undertake voluntary work with the local community and/or environmental organizations
  • Ensure that any employee and management in our organization take account of sustainability issues in their daily business and future plan
  • Encouraging our stakeholders to be involved in sustainable development
  • Set annual targets to reduce our environmental impact
  • Take a measurement-based approach and employ methods to monitor our footprint and track our efforts of mitigation. This should be done in an automated fashion as much as possible to reduce administrative burdens and ensure accuracy
