Social Responsibilty

All of us in Megaplast, along with the dynamic growth that our company has been making in recent years, we give great importance to improving the quality of our fellow human beings & the environment.

MEGAPLAST & NATIONAL EMERGENCY CENTER

As part of our social contribution and corporate responsibility, our company made a significant double donation to National Emergency Center of Crete Greece providing:

  • Modern equipment for disinfecting ambulances as part of the fight against COVID-19 disease

The Forest of Megaplast: Tree-Nation

We commit to plant trees as a part of our CSR. When we plant a tree, we offset our CO2 emissions. The organization "tree-nations" calculates the amount of CO2 every time we plant a tree and in that way we can keep track of our impact on the environment.

 

United Nations: Global Compact

We have become members of the UN where we support, through the Letter of Commitment to the United Nations, the ten (10) Principles on Human Rights, Labor, the Environment and the fight against corruption.
