Sustainable Development: Perspectives and Participation of Colleagues

At our Group, the commitment to Sustainable Development is rooted at the very heart of our company culture, social role and corporate responsibility. We strongly believe that Sustainable Development is meaningful only if it is built on business ethics, social solidarity, and respect for the environment.

Guided by the belief that our Group’s prosperity is inextricably linked with the prosperity of society and the planet, we have undertaken major initiatives reflecting our values and our expectations for a better future.

In this insert, we want to showcase and promote the voices of our colleagues, their own perspective, by asking them three simple questions. We hope to inspire more and more people about a better and more sustainable society.

With this in mind, today we are hosting our colleague Fotis Michael, who holds the position of Health and Safety Manager.

1) What does Sustainability mean to you?

Sustainability refers to the ability to exist, operate and develop without depleting natural resources or harming the environment, in order to ensure the well-being of future generations.

2) What sustainable practices do you adopt in your everyday life?

I incorporate many sustainable practices into my daily routine, such as using recyclable materials (e.g. glasses, straws), saving water and energy, as well as supporting local and organic products (mainly food). In the area where I live, the Municipality of Aglantzia is at the forefront of municipal waste management by implementing the “Polluter pays” principle, according to which citizens are charged based on the volume of residual waste they generate determined by the prepaid purple bags they acquire.

3) What have you learned as a member of our Group about Sustainability?

The Group places great emphasis on the importance of sustainability and the need to take into account the impact of our activities on both the environment and society. We have been trained to identify sustainable practices and incorporate them into our lifestyle and work.
