ABOUT THIS REPORT
Scope and Boundary
The Report refers to the activities of the parent Corporation, namely the Public Power Corporation S.A. (hereinafter «PPC» or the «Corporation») in Greece. Data relating to subsidiaries, possible joint ventures, suppliers or third parties have not been included in the Report. Where data have been revised, the reasons for such revisions are indicated.
The Report seeks to present PPC’s performance on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainable Development issues, by examining the three core aspects of Economy, Environment and Society. It is aimed at all the Corporation’s stakeholder groups, such as customers, shareholders and investors, associates, employees, institutional and public bodies, and local communities. The Report has been prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative guidelines (GRI - version G4). The process for defining the report’s content was based on the GRI G4 guidelines, and the principles of inclusiveness, materiality, sustainability and completeness, and the related GRI Technical Protocols for Indicators are included. Moreover, the GRI - Electric Utilities Sector Supplement, the principles of the Accountability AA1000 standard on inclusiveness, materiality and responsiveness, the Greek Sustainability Code criteria, stakeholders’ expectations and the characteristics of Greek society were taken into consideration. The issues included were ranked based on their impact on the Corporation and stakeholders, based on the PPC sustainability materiality analysis and contact with stakeholders (as outlined in sections 4.3 and 4.4. of the Report). Finally, the completeness of the topics was assessed and the content of the Report was determined. Drafting this Report The Corporate Social Responsibility Section of PPC is responsible for the collection of the data for this Report. The Report Steering Committee may also participate in the process. The role of the Committee, which consists of members of Management, is to facilitate workflows in case the Corporate Social Responsibility Sector is not in a position to resolve issues. The Corporate Social Responsibility Section follows the steps of the Sustainability Report Data Collection process already adopted, using electronic data collection forms and a quantitative data calculation and integration tool. The Corporate Social Responsibility Team, comprising employees from the General Divisions and Independent Sections, also plays an active role in collecting data for the Report. New updated data collection forms were used to collect the data required for this Report, so as to improve the Report preparation process and to increase the quantity of information disclosed. The Corporate Social Responsibility Section groups the necessary data by information source and coordinates the Corporate Social Responsibility Team members as they gather the relevant information. The data collected are approved by the relevant Directors and sent to the Corporate Social Responsibility Section. The Section evaluates the data and may request clarifications, modifications or additional information where necessary. After the quantitative indicators are calculated, the data are consolidated (where required), and then the Report is drafted. The final draft of the Report is checked and approved by the Corporation’s senior management. The method of processing raw numerical data to cover composite indicators is described in the respective sections of the Report. Note that there have not been any major changes to data measurement and processing methods used compared to those employed in the previous report. Where differences do exist, this is clearly stated in the relevant section.
The data and the information presented in this Report have been collected and processed from the databases held at PPC headquarters and by its individual Divisions, with the support of different computer systems, applications, archives and established processes. In cases where it was impossible to collect homogeneous data from all PPC activities to allow general, comprehensive results to be produced, the Report presents selected data with clear reference to the operational unit involved.
The Report was submitted for external assurance to an independent assurance provider, in accordance with the International Assurance Standard 3000 (ISAE 3000).
