    World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Hellas and the EFG Eurobank Ergasias on Tuesday presented a programme for the conservation of forest on Mount Parnitha entitled "Knowing, participating, protecting - Parnitha National Forest".

    Speakers at the press conference said the programme aimed to inform, sensitise and mobilise the public to protect the forest on the slopes of Mount Parnitha, just 30 kilometres from the Greek capital, which was the largest and most important in Attica.

    The programme's pilot phase will begin the voluntary participation of the bank's staff and the support of WWF, they said.

    According to information presented at the press conference, there is a population of 400 deer living on Parnitha and up to 42 species of mammals, of which 35 are protected and 25 are rare. There are also a recorded 1,100 species of plants, eight caves, 50 springs, in additional to archaeological sites and medieval castles within its bounds.

    A series of tours of the forests for adults and families have already begun as part of the programme, in additional to environmental education programmes for school groups and teachers.

    Representatives of EFG Eurobank said the bank had adopted an official environmental policy that included the promotion of "green" products and loans of favourable terms for businesses or entrepreneurs engaged in environmentally-friendly activities.

    EFG Eurobank Ergasias has been certified as an ISO 14001 environmental management standards company for its products and services in Attica.
