According to Mr. Vrasidas Zavras, General Manager of Piraeus Bank, "this project addresses the big questions of our times; that is, how and to what extent is a company affected by climate change, and how it can cope with it. This evaluation is happening for the first time in Greece and it is also an innovative task within the European Union." He further states, "the project's acronym climabiz derives from the words 'Climate' and 'Business' signifying that tackling climate change creates development opportunities, and this is exactly what this new project of Piraeus Bank is aiming to demonstrate."
