Support for environmental initiatives by NGO

OTE has undertaken a series of actions towards the protection of the environment for the year 2010, such as:

  • Participation of employees and their families, in an action that was planned in cooperation with the Non-Governmental Organisation ‘ANIMA’, for releasing hawks and other birds to the wild.
  • Participation of employees, their families, and citizens, in the context of celebrating the World Environment Day, in local actions that were carried out by OTE’s 35 Cultural Centres in various areas of Greece, and which included planting trees, cleaning shores, lakes, forests etc, as well as collecting and sorting trash as recyclable and non-recyclable.
