The donation pertains to a multi-purpose vehicle combining the capacities of snowploughing, spreading salt, lawn mowing, branch cutting and pruning, which will assist municipal authorities in their work. The vehicle, along with its accompanying parts and accessories, was presented to the Edessa Municipality’s technical staff and citizens, leaving them with the best of impressions.
At the event, the Mayor of Edessa, Dimitris Giannou, noted that from the beginning of TAP’s presence in the area, their spirit of collaboration was evident; adding that with its several Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities supporting local communities, TAP’s management demonstrates that the project will be a pipeline of friendship and cooperation.
In his address, TAP’s representative Christos Bersos, thanked the Edessa municipal authorities for their excellent collaboration and expressed his contentment for the swift implementation of the Donation of Utility Vehicles programme; an initiative addressing actual needs of local communities in Northern Greece.
The DESTINATION, SAFETY project is implemented in the context of TAP’s voluntary Social and Environmental Investments (SEI) programme. This specific initiative exceeds €10 million, meaning that it’s one of the largest carried out by TAP in the local communities it traverses. It pertains to the donation of ca. 90 utility vehicles (ambulances, garbage trucks and road-sweepers, forestry vehicles, snowploughs, and civil protection vehicles), focusing on the safety and protection of local citizens, the enhancement of their quality of life, and environmental management.
