An integral part of HELLENIC PETROLEUM Group corporate philosophy is the long-term commitment towards Greek society. In this context, the Group has renewed and upgraded the sponsoring relationship with the Hellenic Paralympic Committee, alongside promoting diversity and inclusion through actions and initiatives that contribute to societal advancement.
Through actively supporting the Hellenic Paralympic Team since 2018, today, as Grand Sponsor, the HELLENIC PETROLEUM Group highlights diversity and inclusiveness as driving forces of empowerment and added value for society. The Group continuously supports athletes with disabilities, overcoming obstacles and insurmountable challenges, while maintaining a positive attitude in everyday life.
This initiative provides a stimulus towards raising public awareness about equal opportunities in sports for people with disabilities as well as actively promotes the Paralympic movement and its principles:
- Courage: athletes seek to accomplish what the general public deems unexpected
- Determination: athletes push their physical abilities to the absolute limits
- Inspiration: the athletes' background and achievements are a source of inspiration
- Equality: paralympic sports act as an agent for change to break down social barriers of discrimination for persons with an impairment
The HELLENIC PETROLEUM Group becomes an even stronger advocate of the Paralympic Team athletes, promoting their efforts to see their dreams become a reality. These efforts involve not only their personal goals but also represent Greece in Tokyo 2020 and Paris 2024 Paralympic Games, alongside 2022 Beijing Winter Paralympics.
