Sustainability Platform
Corporate Social Responsibility
METKA is committed to the principle of sustainable
development and its business practices are entirely
connected with the concept of Corporate Social Re-
sponsibility.
The continuing efforts of the group in this area
are demonstrated through the contribution to the
economic development of the local communities
wherever it operates, by providing a modern and
safe work place for employees, and through our
commitment to protect the environment.
Support of Local Communities
METKA provides support locally where it operates,
whilst in several cases acts supportively to areas
that are neighboring to its construction sites. MET-
KA is receptive to local needs and undertakes initi-
atives that enhance the social, athletic and cultural
aspects of its communities.
Within this framework, the Company organized, for
the fourth consecutive year an Open Dialogue Fo-
rum, at the Company’s headquarters, with the par-
ticipation of representatives of local government,
business world, unions, customers and partners,
NGOs and journalists.
Environmental Protection
In regards to the environment the Company’s ma-
jor commitment is to respect and abide by all legal
regulations and demands related to the environ-
mental aspect of its operations. The development
of a comprehensive Environmental Protection Sys-
tem, in accordance with the international standard
ISO 14001, is indicative of the company’s recogni-
tion of its responsibilities towards the human and
natural environment.
In this context the Company aims to continuously
improve its environmental performance, to pro-
mote measures that reduce the environmental
impact of its operations, as well as to ensure com-
pliance with the applicable European and national
laws and respective regulations.
