The Corporate Responsibility Committee of the American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce convened its 4th Sustainable Talks initiative, The Growth Collaborative, on May 17, 2019, at Stevia Hellas Cooperative in Lamia. Sustainable Talks is a series of single-subject discussions aiming to create a constructive dialogue platform on the integration of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into the Greek business reality.
The event was a real step out of the ordinary, as the 50 participants had the chance to visit the stevia fields and discuss with farmers on the amazing potential presented by this valuable plant for the local society and the economy. Innovative business thinking, perpetual commitment to partnerships, diligent research and development and emotional care for the region and its people are the elements of a business model that generates value across every capital, tangible or not. But the greatest value of this cooperative is the role model drive for a sustainable future in the region and beyond.
