GRI G3 Disclosure TITAN Reference
EN1 - Materials used by weight or volume
EN2 - Percentage of materials used that are recycled input materials
EN3 - Direct energy consumption by primary energy source
EN4 - Indirect energy consumption by primary source
  • Indirect energy consumption is related only to electrical energy consumed for production activities. Taking into account that electrical energy consumption represents a relative small percentage of 12-13% of the total energy consumed and the overall unavailability of reliable information to calculate indicators like the amount of primary fuels consumed for the production of the electrical energy, such indicators are not provided in this report.
EN5 - Energy saved due to conservation and efficiency improvements
EN6 - Initiatives to provide energy-efficient or renewable energy based products and services, and reductions in energy requirements as a result of these initiatives.
EN7 - Initiatives to reduce indirect energy consumption and reductions achieved.
EN8 - Total water withdrawal by source.
EN9 - Water sources significantly affected by withdrawal of water.
EN10 - Percentage and total volume of water recycled and reused.
EN11 - Location and size of land owned, leased, managed in, or adjacent to, protected areas and areas of high biodiversity value outside protected areas.
EN12 - Description of significant impacts of activities, products, and services on biodiversity in protected areas and areas of high biodiversity value outside protected areas.
EN13 - Habitats protected or restored
EN14 - Strategies, current actions, and future plans for managing impacts on biodiversity.
EN15 - Number of IUCN Red List species and national conservation list species with habitats in areas affected by operations, by level of extinction risk.
Emissions, effluents and waste
EN16 - Total direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions by weight.
EN17 - Other relevant indirect greenhouse gas emissions by weight.
EN18 - Initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reductions achieved.
EN19 - Emissions of ozone-depleting substances by weight.
  • Not relevant to TITAN Group operations. We do not emit such substances.
EN20 - NOx, SOx, and other significant air emissions by type and weight
  • Air Emissions
  • VOC, POP and other trace elements like Hg and heavy metals are not considered significant air emissions. However, they are monitored as required by the plant permits, usually in conjunction with the use of alternative fuels. In most cases, this is done with the means of spot measurements, 1 or 2 per year. In the last few years, we took the initiative, as a Group, to extent such measurements to all of our cement production plants on a voluntary basis. Coverage is still partial but we are working on getting to full coverage.
EN21 - Total water discharge by quality and destination
EN22 - Total weight of waste by type and disposal method
  • The majority of waste produced (267.800t) was recycled off-site, 48.710 t were landfield, 175 t were stored off-site, while 3.010 t were disposed with other methods
EN23 - Total number and volume of significant spills
  • No significant spills have been recorded throughout the year
EN24 - Weight of transported, imported, exported, or treated waste deemed hazardous under the terms of the Basel Convention Annex I, II, III, and VIII, and percentage of transported waste shipped internationally.
  • Not relevant to TITAN Group operations
EN25 - Identity, size, protected status, and biodiversity value of water bodies and related habitats significantly affected by the reporting organization’s discharges of water and runoff.
Products and services
EN26 - Initiatives to mitigate environmental impacts of products and services, and extent of impact mitigation.
EN27 - Percentage of products sold and their packaging materials that are reclaimed by category.
  • All packaging materials used for bagged cement (i.e. bags, pallets) are reclaimed at delivery or reused and recycled by customers
EN28 - Monetary value of significant fines and total number of non-monetary sanctions or noncompliance with environmental laws and regulations.
  • The monetary value of all fines related to environmental issues was €42.710
EN29 - Significant environmental impacts of transporting products and other goods and materials used for the organization’s operations, and transporting members of the workforce.
  • All transportation means used by TITAN Group are monitored and controlled so as to reduce to a minimum environmnetal impacts. Priority is given to transportation of goods by train and boat, allowing optimization of resources and less impact on the environment. TITAN operates relevant terminals and railways to meet this aim. If trucks are the only available means of transportation, then effort is given to optimize every trip. As an example trucks delivering our products are used to transport raw materials on their way back to the plant. In addition, wherever possible workforce transportation is performed using busses and thus reducing the number of private car used. In all cases, we are promoting the use of trucks or vehicles that cover the requirements dictated by the local legislation. If possible, the use of alternative fuels, like biodiesel, is seeked for.
EN30 - Total environmental protection expenditures and investments by type.
