Aegean Airlines recently received the Corporate Social Responsibility Award for 2014 by the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) as part of the 2014 ACCI Awards to enterprises and entrepreneurs.
The airline was given this particularly important distinction in recognition of its strategic decision to systematically invest in corporate responsibility. In this context, the company implemented once again this year a series of actions aimed at highlighting Greece's cultural heritage, developing tourism, promoting and reinforcing sports, adopting eco-friendly practices, and supporting vulnerable groups in society.
The award ceremony was held recently, at the Athens Concert Hall.
Chairman, Aegean Airlines, Theodoros Vasilakis said: "Indeed, social responsibility actions have been, since the early days of the company, an important and integral part of the company's culture, and our activity in this area has been ceaseless. Allow me to say that we would rather keep a low profile in this field. We are committed to continue, with a new impetus, to plan and implement actions and initiatives aiming at always being close to the Greek society and state. I would like to thank the chairman and the BoD of ACCI, because this distinction gives us new strength and endurance, qualities which are always useful."
