We are always in open dialogue with the local communities, where we do business, and acknowledge the issues that are important for each individual region. We apply good practices for all social groups, support the local economy and local suppliers, we offer opportunities to young people and place particular emphasis on locality in the personnel selection procedure.
Currently, more than 449 employees, residing in nearby municipalities in the Thriasio region and 136 employees, residing in the Western Thessaloniki region are employed by the Group.
Over €3 million are paid each year in municipal taxes and the local economies benefit from our purchases of products and services from local businesses.
Purchases from local suppliers amount to 15.2% of total value of purchases for HELLENIC PETROLEUM and DIAXON (industrial companies) and to 95.8% for our marketing companies (excluding costs such as purchases, transportation and storage of raw materials and intermediates, public utilities payments, intra-group transactions and payments to the state, insurance funds and insurance companies).
