Uni Systems is acutely aware of the diverse and challenging social problems we all face today and, through a series of actions and initiatives, based on Social Responsibility Management standard SA 8000, proves its commitment to optimal working conditions. Uni Systems implements actions as outlined in SA 8000 in the Company’s Management and Evaluation Systems as well.
The Company has established a blood bank in collaboration with the Amalia Fleming Hospital and is being an ardent supporter of this scheme, while supporting in a yearly basis the Mitera Foundation – A Center for the Protection of the Child of the Attica Region, by providing specialized therapies to children that are in need. As a result of this initiative, inmates of the Foundation have been successfully adopted by families during the past five (5) years.
Our Company actively takes action and participates in several humanitarian initiatives by making an effort to support relevant organizations and socially vulnerable groups. To that end, we support families affiliated to Mitera Foundation that are in need, we collected supplies for the Refugee Center in Piraeus and we support the City of Athens Homeless Shelter.
Giving is part of our mentality.
Uni Systems recognises that prosperity and economy's growth is directly dependent on the sustainability of the environment, and man’s harmonious and balanced survival within that environment. It actively contributes to protecting the environment and saving natural resources by adopting specific rules and applying them across the entire Company.
Uni System follows a clear environmental policy and in doing so fulfils the expectations of its staff, shareholders and customers.The following principles govern the Company’s environmental policy:
Energy Savings| Our aim is to reduce the level of electricity, water and heating oil used and to recycle appliances, batteries, paper, plastics and other materials at all Company facilities. To achieve that, clearly-worded guidelines have been provided to staff about the rational use of electrical appliances, the air-conditioning system and all resources in general.
Company Cars| In the context of its environmental policy, the Company has replaced the cars provided to executives with new hybrid, low fuel consumption and low emission cars.
Appliance Recycling| As a company which takes a responsible stance on environmental issues and as a company which is aware of the importance of such issues, for several years Uni Systems has partnered with the first and only company running an electrical and electronic appliance recycling scheme in Greece, Appliances Recycling S.A. Uni Systems sends old or damaged electromechanical equipment, computers, and the like to Appliances Recycling S.A., which recycles or reuses them.
Office space| The Company’s facilities meet all the relevant H&S requirements and energy savings measures have been put in place. Third party access to company facilities is controlled by a special security team and all required personal protection equipment and firefighting equipment is available. The facilities have heat and sound insulation installed, old light bulbs have been replaced with new, low power consumption bulbs, while special recycling bins for batteries, paper and other recyclable materials have been installed at all facilities. In order to better deal with health, safety and environment-related issues, Uni Systems employees an occupational doctor and a safety engineer at all its facilities.
Supplier Compliance with Environmental Principles| As part of its quality system, when evaluating suppliers before concluding contracts and agreements with them, the Company examines whether said suppliers comply with environmental protection criteria in relation to the services and products they provide. The Company does not market products which do not comply with energy savings and environmental protection standards.
