CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

At ERMA FIRST Group, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is not a one-off action – but what we do on a daily basis. We transform CSR into purposeful, tangible and meaningful actions. ERMA FIRST Group builds and implements CSR plans serving our higher purpose and company values, based on three key pillars: Local community, Inclusivity & Sustainability.

October 2022 | ERMA FIRST, EPE AND SEA SCOUTS OF ATHENS TEAM UP TO PROMOTE SUSTAINABILITY & HAVE FUN!

This weekend, ERMA FIRST and Environmental Protection Engineering S.A. welcomed the Sea Scouts of Athens and their families to an amazing day of on-shore and at-sea activities.

More than 60 young adventurers got the chance to learn how to sail and paddle in traditional wooden vessels, as well as take part in other nautical activities such as knot tying, map reading and navigation lessons. We also celebrated with an amazing BBQ at the end of the marina to close the festivities.

It was amazing to see so many Sea Scouts take the reins this weekend and join us to learn more about life at sea. We want to thank all those who took part, as well as our colleagues who gave up part of their weekend in order to give back to our community.

This event was the latest part of ERMA FIRST’s CSR strategy as we look to work with local communities to showcase the benefits of keeping our waters safe and clean. We strongly believe in meaningful and impactful #CSR to help change the world for the better. Let’s all continue to empower our local communities with our actions!

Stay tuned as we’ve got more CSR events to come in #2022year!

August 2022 | ERMA FIRST, EPE AND HELMEPA TEAM UP TO PRODUCE SUSTAINABILITY-INSPIRED ATHENS MURAL

Today we are thrilled to unveil our new mural in downtown Athens to promote marine sustainability and boost the local community’s sensitivity towards environmental issues.

ERMA FIRST, in collaboration with Environmental Protection Engineering S.A. and HELMEPA – Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, has worked with local artist Atek and supported by elculture’s project ‘Γενιά 17’, to create this stunning seven-storey mural that will have a pride of place for the next two years. This artwork is part of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations and designed to be a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.

This street artwork, which depicts the United Nations’ Global SDG 14 – ‘Life below Water’, is the latest part of our CSR strategy, which is based on sustainability, inclusivity and local community. EMRA FIRST strongly believes in meaningful and impactful CSR to help change the world for the better.

We hope local residents and the wider community enjoy this amazing artwork and reflect on the importance of taking care of our oceans. Let’s all get loud and spread the message: #icareaboutthesea.

April 2022 | Crafting Easter candles along with employee families and kids from Saint Alexandros Shelter

At ERMA FIRST, we believe in building the future of our community by supporting initiatives that aim to improve the lives of everyone.

Today (20.04) at the ERMA FIRST Headquarters we enjoyed an amazing time together with our employees and their families along with kids from Saint Alexandros Shelter in Palaio Faliro, Athens. The Shelter accommodates girls from the age of six years old, who have faced considerable hardship. The mission of the Shelter is protection, education, as well as professional and social rehabilitation.

All together we had great fun, played games and created Easter candles, which are donated to the Shelter to support their social bazaar, as well as the kids got their Easter gifts! The action was supported the fantastic team of ethelon.
