announced its Social Responsibility actions to support the efforts of the community against COVID-19.
The first action is the issue of a “Guide for Trust” aiming to set the best practices for painting professionals and subcontractors that want to quote for and undertake projects in homes or office/retail spaces that are in use.
This is available online as well as in printed form, in all the paint stores Vitex collaborates with.
The second action is the donation of certified Antibacterial Surface Protection paints (Vitex Eco Emulsion Paint & Aquavit Eco Wood Enamel paint) with very low VOC emissions (A+ classification for Indoor Air Quality) and IMSL certification to 10+ hospitals in five countries.
The company donated the required quantity to paint and protect more than 1,000 hospital rooms and offered them to public institutions fighting COVID-19.
Certified antibacterial paints have been already delivered to hospitals in Athens, Thessaloniki & Patras, Greece and Sofia, Bulgaria.
In the next weeks, deliveries will take place in Cyprus, Romania and Serbia.
The price increase on Vitex Eco and Aquavit Eco – announced in January –has been postponed.
"In a time of crisis, we believe that donations are not enough. Social responsibility is to provide added value and support to your ecosystem and to provide solutions to the society at large," Vitex CEO Armodios Yannidis said.
