Volume of biofuels produced and purchased meeting sustainability criteria
HELPE does not choose a biofuels supplier. It is required by national legislation to receive specific quantities per supplier per month as defined by the Joint Ministerial Decision 179948/8.10.2018 (see also State Gazette, 2nd Issue, no. 4503/12.10.2018) which is issued each year – subject to technical specifications. As such, one of the distribution criteria regarding supplies from various suppliers is sustainability.
On the basis of the JMD, in 2018, HELPE was supplied by third parties with 107,448m3 of biodiesel, which corresponds to 7.07% in vol. terms to diesel.
HELPE does not produce biofuels but sources them from third party suppliers.
