Attica Group publishes its Corporate Responsibility Report for 2018 in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) ‘Sustainability Reporting Standards’ guidelines (at ‘Core’ option). The 2018 Report is Attica Group’s 10th overall Corporate Responsibility Report and indicates 10 years of continuous Accountability related to Corporate Responsibility.

Being the first passenger shipping company worldwide to follow GRI Standards for Corporate Responsibility Reporting as of 2016, the present Report refers to 84 GRI disclosures, extends the reference to a total of 225 quantitative indicators to enhance transparency and presents 42 future objectives, and includes the newly acquired Hellenic Seaways, after the acquisition of its share capital.

Besides presenting the Group’s actions, results and objectives, the Report’s publication aims to enhance dialogue with all Stakeholders on Corporate Responsibility issues, as it transparently and clearly describes the Group’s progress, as well as the areas where the Group should intensify its efforts for further improvement.

Commenting on Attica Group’s 10th Corporate Responsibility Report, the Group’s Chief Executive Officer Mr. Spyridon Paschalis underlined:

"Operating in a continuously changing economic and business environment, business activity for all of us at Attica Group is directly linked to Corporate Responsibility, which means operating in a responsible manner as professionals and thinking long-term as citizens. In practice, this is associated with our Group's financial success, combined at the same time with incorporating responsibility into our daily management practices, supporting prosperity of society, establishing positive employment conditions, ensuring our passenger safety and reducing our environmental impact.

As a pioneer in our commitment to incorporate global Corporate Responsibility principles, we are truly delighted to see more and more companies in our industry to develop initiatives related to Corporate Responsibility. We hope that our 10-year uninterrupted commitment to Accountability for the relevant initiatives, through the publication of our Corporate Responsibility Reports according to the highest international standards, will serve as an example for other companies as well.

For our part, it is self-evident that we are fully committed to continue our efforts to further disseminate Corporate Responsibility both within and beyond Attica Group, as reflected in our Vision, Mission and Values, but above all in our employees’ ethical behavior, being called upon every day to successfully overcome the daily challenges."
