CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

At EPE, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is not a one-off action – but what we do on a daily basis. We transform CSR into purposeful, tangible and meaningful actions. EPE builds and implements CSR plans serving our higher purpose and company values, based on three key pillars: Local community, Inclusivity & Sustainability.

November 2022 | EPE & HELMEPA TEAM UP TO CLEAN THE ELEFSINA BEACH

Last weekend, EPE and HELMEPA – Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association proudly organized a volunteering action, gathering up the team to clean the #Elefsina #Beach. EPE’s Marine Environment Protection Department Team has been the leading force behind this action and together with HELMEPA – Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association and other volunteers put huge efforts to successfully clean the beach and enjoyed a fantastic day filled with purpose and environmental impact.

EPE has been defining environmental protection since 1977 and this volunteering action has been another proof-point in respect to the EPE’s Brand Promise of environmental preservation. We collected an extensive amount of waste, filling up five large industrial bags. Recyclable materials were separated from the generic waste to follow further processing. Additionally, an extensive cleaning of the promenade and part of the harbor was also completed. Closing the day, an educational environmental briefing took place to raise awareness of the environmental issues as well as how to act responsibly towards the environment adopting sustainable actions in our everyday lives.

Giving back and empowering the local community has been a key driver for this action and has been an honor to see local residents enjoying the beach after the cleaning and receiving lots of thankful comments from the local community. We should all act fast as the environment needs our support!

August 2022 | EPE, ERMA FIRST AND HELMEPA TEAM UP TO PRODUCE SUSTAINABILITY-INSPIRED ATHENS MURAL

Today we are thrilled to unveil our new mural in downtown Athens to promote marine sustainability and boost the local community’s sensitivity towards environmental issues.

Environmental Protection Engineering S.A., in collaboration with ERMA FIRST and HELMEPA – Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, has worked with local artist Atek and supported by elculture’s project ‘Γενιά 17’, to create this stunning seven-storey mural that will have a pride of place for the next two years. This artwork is part of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations and designed to be a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.

This street artwork, which depicts the United Nations’ Global SDG 14 – ‘Life below Water’, is the latest part of our CSR strategy, which is based on sustainability, inclusivity and local community. EMRA FIRST strongly believes in meaningful and impactful CSR to help change the world for the better.

We hope local residents and the wider community enjoy this amazing artwork and reflect on the importance of taking care of our oceans. Let’s all get loud and spread the message: #icareaboutthesea.

April 2022 | Crafting Easter candles along with employee families and kids from Saint Alexandros Shelter

At EPE & ERMA FIRST, we believe in building the future of our community by supporting initiatives that aim to improve the lives of everyone.

Today (20.04) at the ERMA FIRST Headquarters we enjoyed an amazing time together with our employees and their families along with kids from Saint Alexandros Shelter in Palaio Faliro, Athens. The Shelter accommodates girls from the age of six years old, who have faced considerable hardship. The mission of the Shelter is protection, education, as well as professional and social rehabilitation.

All together we had great fun, played games and created Easter candles, which are donated to the Shelter to support their social bazaar, as well as the kids got their Easter gifts! The action was supported the fantastic team of ethelon.

We strongly believe in meaningful and impactful #CSR to help change the world for the better. Let’s all empower our local communities with our actions!
