Local Communities

A+ A-

 

We recognize that our success and our growth in the direction of sustainable development, is heavily intertwined with the wellbeing of local communities where we operate . For this reason we place great emphasis on:

1. our participation , where possible , to create income through social investment and local economic initiatives .

2. in our contribution to building relationships of respect, trust and cooperation with local actors by strengthening municipalities and local bodies for infrastructure utilities and cultural activities that take place mainly during the construction phase of our projects .

3. in our efforts to promote education, health and culture to local populations, actions consistent with the principle of respect for human rights and sustainable development of local communities.

 

Management Approach

Beyond our contribution to the economic development of the local communities where we operate, in MYTILINEOS we seek to also promote the balanced and varied development of these communities by actively and consciously supporting their cultural, intellectual, social and sporting life. In addition to our standing position regarding the support of Culture, Sports and Entrepreneurship, our Group’s social policy is also expressed through concerted actions to provide technical and financial assistance for local infrastructures.
Each year, we help find solutions to a number of social issues and we provide financial assistance to actions and initiatives whose aim is to strengthen social cohesion at the central as well as at the local level.

We assist in the implementation of local infrastructure works, by contributing financial, technical and other resources.

We support high social interest initiatives of the local social and environmental organisations.

We strengthen local cultural life and education.

Our efforts to build constructive collaborations with the local communities in which we operate define the scope of our social goals, which involve the “CREATION OF JOBS AND DEVELOPMENT OF SKILLS”, “SOCIAL INVESTMENTS IN LOCAL INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS” and “STRENGTHENING EDUCATION, CULTURE AND HEALTH”. Furthermore, acting as a "RESPONSIBLE CORPORATE CITIZEN", we focus on limiting our company’s exposure to corruption, we plan measures to mitigate the risk of incidents of corruption by adopting international anti-corruption standards, we adhere to market rules, and we strengthen transparency through the participation and active engagement of our Stakeholders in an ongoing dialogue. We participate actively and consistently in public consultations on specific Bills and on draft decisions and regulations which concern the Energy sector and affect directly our business activities.
