We focus for the second year to an important solution: we take responsibility towards our country’s latest difficult situation and we try to fight against poverty.Our aim is particularly to help children, their families and generally Greek people living under miserable conditions.Therefore, we either support the efforts and plans (tasks) of several charity foundations in Greece financially or we act voluntary.

B. Solution – Environment

We aim to protect the environment and therefore we adopt every day practices that reduce our energy consumption.We develop an internal environmental friendly culture.We ameliorate our quality of life and invest in a new operational model that focused on reducing our carbon footprint.

One of our main scopes is the promotion of the heritage of the Hellenic financial history through stock exchange.We are interested in communicating the capital market principles to the next generation.Our employees are another basic investment of Helex Group.We enhance their capabilities and improve their knowledge through various training programs.

We donate every year during Christmas time a specific amount of money to charity foundations.We cooperate with voluntary organizations in order to participate to their actions.

B. Solution – Environment

Recycling

We encourage our employees to operate by ‘thinking green’.Under a specific program we collect and recycle the majority of waste resulting from our daily activities.We recycle various materials such as paper, office stationary, batteries, mineral oils etc.

Save energy

The building uses a system of internal lighting that adjusts variably the light distribution depending on the relevant needs.Taking advantage of the sunny Greek weather we took the initiative to turn off the lights in our offices.We set the temperature heating in stable level according to weather conditions (winter – summer period).We have replaced most of the lamps in the premises by other economy lamps.

Athens Green 360

With an ultimate objective to operate as a ‘green building’, we became a member of the Athens Green initiative.In cooperation with the AG business network we calculated our carbon footprint and adopted the CSR program for the reducing of our energy consumption and our CO2 emissions.We agreed to a ‘tailored made’ action plan that help us adopt practices more environment friendly.

C. Solution – Education
