Communication and cooperation with neighboring local communities are multidimensional and include CSR activities and sponsorships as well as more direct collaborations such as infrastructure developments and supporting small local businesses. These are backed by continuous dialogue and surveys, such as the materiality assessment, annual opinion surveys, public debates and other forms of communication.

The results of these practices are evaluated and redefined, in order to take into account and meet our stakeholders’ needs and expectations, as they are reflected in the above surveys and evaluations.

Currently, more than 407 permanent employees reside in nearby municipalities in the region of Thriasio, and 106 employees in the West Thessaloniki area.

More than € 3 million are paid each year in municipal rates, while the local economies benefit from our purchases of products and services from businesses in the areas near our facilities.

Purchases from local suppliers amount to 13.4% for HELLENIC PETROLEUM and DIAXON (industrial companies) and to 97% for our commercial companies.
