EKO Serbia, which operates in Serbia through a network of 55 service stations, has completed all the procedures required to obtain Covid Shield certification at the top level of "Excellent" for its premises housing its administrative structures in Serbia. Thus, it has become the first company in the country accredited with this innovative certificate. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, EKO Serbia has prioritised the safety of its employees, associates and customers, taking all the necessary measures and implementing the recommended health protocols.
The Private Certification Scheme Covid Shield was developed by TÜV AUSTRIA Hellas and is an integrated Certification Scheme to increase the confidence of citizens and consumers in businesses, which apply and become certified under the Scheme. In this context and with a strong sense of responsibility, social conscience and business ethics, EKO Serbia A.D. took immediate action from the very first day of the health crisis in order to create a safe work environment.
“We at EKO Serbia took immediate action, adopting all the measures necessary to protect our employees and customers. This is directly reflected in the recent Covid Shield certification we obtained. EKO Serbia remains at the side of its people and consumers, prioritising safety and responsibility and viewing the future with diligence and optimism”, stated Mr Panagiotis Loukas, the Chief Executive Officer of EKO Serbia.
The Covid Shield certification has been carried out on a group level including all the subsidiaries in the five countries where the Hellenic Petroleum Group operates.
