Sustainability

Euronickel is committed to operating responsibly and sustainably by maintaining a safe workplace, minimising environmental impacts and by supporting local communities.

This is achieved through a comprehensive risk identification and management framework supported by a system of standards and policies that are regularly reviewed to ensure their effectiveness and compliance with international best practice.

We strive for the highest standards of environmental and safety management and have achieved ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management.

Health & Safety

Euronickel takes steps to continuously improve its health and safety performance with the target of creating a zero-harm workplace for employees and contractors. A key focus of our policies is the promotion of safe and healthy behaviour by our workforce in all their activities.

Key safety practices are regularly reviewed and audited to ensure ongoing compliance with laws and best practice standards. Euronickel also maintains comprehensive staff training and health monitoring programmes focussed on priority areas identified through risk assessment processes conducted by the Occupational Health and Safety team.

Euronickel also provides preventive health care for employees through its onsite clinic and medical team who provide occupational safety training programmes as well as advice on maintaining healthy lifestyles.

Environment

Euronickel aims to meet or exceed relevant local and European environmental legislation. The plant continuously monitors its emissions and has established a comprehensive waste management system.

SO2, NOx, CO2 and dust emissions from Euronickel’s operations are in line with relevant North Macedonian and EU emission limits following significant investments, plant upgrades and improved dust suppression.

Euronickel has an A-Integrated environmental license, in line with the European IPPC directive.

Community

We are committed to building and maintaining our social licence to operate through transparent and constructive, long-term relationships with all stakeholders, including our host communities.

Euronickel creates significant benefits for the community through employment, purchasing goods and services, paying taxes and royalties and investment in infrastructure, and we seek to build on this through the establishment of long-term partnerships with stakeholders.

Where possible, we work with local suppliers to ensure we create maximum benefit for local communities. Our supply chain comprises more than 1,000 domestic companies.

Euronickel provides ongoing support to the local community through projects including:

  • Financial and material donations for infrastructure projects (such as road maintenance)
  • Main sponsor of the Tikveshki Grozdober grape harvesting festival
  • Sponsorship of Alshar – bicycle and mountain climbing race
  • Sponsorship of local tournaments including football, other sports and similar events.

Euronickel is a founder of the local Kavadarci basketball club, EURONICKEL 2005, one of the leading basketball clubs in North Macedonia, as well as the basketball academy for children and youths.
