ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION SECTOR - GEOTHERMY

Through the recent modernization of the memorandum of the Society, the social awareness on environmental issues has been added to its aims so that the ecological harmony of our island is protected. To this direction intense efforts are placed towards protecting, to the extent of our capabilities, the built and natural environment as well.

The largest environmental problem, which Nisyros faces lately, is beyond any doubt the possibility of the exploitation of the high enthalpy geothermal fields, which have been detected in the subsoil of the island.
