Making a Positive Economic Impact
We believe that every business has the potential to seriously impact society. Making positive contributions in the regions and communities in which we operate is an important objective for Olympia Group. With our diverse business portfolio, we have a multifaceted positive impact in societies.
The Foundation for Economic & Industrial Research of Greece (IOBE) conducted a study on the socio-economic impact of the Olympia Group during the period of 2012-2018, as well as forecasts for the future, concluding that the operations of Olympia Group companies make a significant contribution to the Greek economy in terms of both GDP, amounting to 0.4% of the national economy (GDP), but also the employment and environment. It is estimated that each added-value euro from the Olympia Group creates another 3.9 euros of GDP for the economy in total.
Our contribution in exports is particularly high. Sunlight, our industrial subsidiary active in the energy sector, exports 93% of its production, while its batteries ranks 21st among the 100 most significant exported Greek products.
