At OTE, we are strongly committed to be in the forefront of Corporate Responsibility in Greece and South-East Europe. OTE joined GeSI in 2008, as part of a strategic decision to deepen our focus on environmental sustainability. This includes systematic measurement and reduction of our carbon footprint, innovative use of renewable energy, development of greener systems and services, and engagement in national and European policy dialogues. Participating in GeSI provides OTE with insight, exchange of knowledge and best practice, and the opportunity to contribute to setting and upholding high standards in our industry. This is an important part of our Corporate Responsibility strategy, and it is also indispensable for society in these very challenging times.
