Our Vision 

With long experience and presence in 30 countries, ELLAKTOR is evolving into a modern and profitable Group, fully aligned with the principles of Corporate Governance and Sustainable Development.

Bringing experience together with state of the art technologies, ELLAKTOR always seeks to develop projects that are growth drivers and help improve quality of life for people all over the world. With a steadfast orientation towards the respect for and protection of the environment, supporting society and upgrading the economy, ELLAKTOR aims at becoming a dynamic and consistent player enhancing and disseminating sustainability and green growth on all levels.

Our Values

  • Ethics – Our conduct is ethical and promotes transparency and open communication
  • Innovation – We value agility, innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit
  • Respect – We respect diversity and promote equal opportunities in the workplace
  • Collaboration – We encourage teamwork, constructive collaboration and collective accountability
  • Safety – We commit to promoting a safe working environment
  • Social Responsibility – We acknowledge our environmental responsibility and act in ways that reduce the impact of our activities on the environment

Our Strategy

For years, ELLAKTOR has had a very active and substantial contribution to sustainable development, supporting the Greek economy, offering safe working conditions with fair pay, protecting the environment, sponsoring social activities and supporting our fellow human beings in need.

Today, we systematize our efforts in all these areas by increasing our economic, social and environmental footprint and by multiplying the value generated by our activity for all stakeholders.

  • We set clear objectives and priorities regarding the environment, society, the market and our employees.
  • Cautiously, we move from undertaking charity work to performing actual social responsibility and setting targets which will have a major positive impact on society
  • We plan our transition from an environmentally friendly operation to a strategic penetration into areas and technologies that can have a direct positive impact on the environment.
  • We evolve from being a responsible employer to being an organization where human capital grows, prospers and advances at an individual and collective level.
  • We want to become catalysts of improvement for our suppliers across our supply chain.
