The OTE Group aims to foster awareness and increase engagement among employees and the general public via initiatives that promote the common objective of environmental protection and sustainable development.
Just some of the most important activities that took place in 2016 were that the OTE Group's employees took part in a series of environmental activities to celebrate World Environment Day and to run information, awareness and training actions to keep them up to date, and they also participated in WWF's "Earth Hour" and in the Voluntary Campaign "Let's do it Greece".
To promote sustainable development, we have also been running an extensive recycling program since 2013 at the COSMOTE and GERMANOS retail networks. On the occasion of World Environment Day, both companies reminded to the public how important it is for everyone to contribute to environmental protection, through this special targeted recycling program for used mobile and fixed devices. By recycling their used mobile or tablet customers of the retail network had the chance to buy new devices with a discount of up to € 20.
At the same time, ΟΤΕ and COSMOTE support events and actions organized by NGOs highlighting the environmental responsibility of citizens and fostering environmental awareness among school pupils.
