Circular economy ­Platinum ‘Zero Waste ­to Landfill’ certification

The highest Platinum rating (Zero Waste) under the ‘Zero Waste to Landfill’ standard was awarded to all of Titan’s cement plants in Greece – Kamari, Patra and Thessaloniki – in the context of the global transition toward a circular economy and the reduction of landfill waste. The certification, carried out by Eurocert, reaffirms the excellent environmental performance of Titan’s plants and rewards a practice already adopted: diverting virtually 100% of plant waste from landfill. This is achieved through initiatives taken to prevent the creation of waste and proper management to avoid landfilling.

The General Manager for Greece, Angelos Kalogerakos, said, “Titan is clearly committed to contributing substantively, through its operation and products, to the zero-waste goal. The Platinum ‘Zero Waste to Landfill’ certification endorses and rewards the good practices that we have systematically applied for many years and that we have adopted in order to minimize our footprint and ensure a sustainable future for coming generations.”

Titan’s cement plants in the USA and Turkey have also received zero waste certifications. With the addition of the three plants in Greece, the Group has already surpassed its 2025 ESG target to have 50% of its production “Zero Waste to Landfill” certified.
