Three awards were the result for DEMO SA at the Healthcare Business Awards 2021 ceremony, held on Monday, September 20, 2021.

The company won the Gold Award for its social contribution program entitled “It’s OUR Responsibility” and the Bronze Award for its Employee Safety and Awareness program “We Protect ourselves”.  The evening for DEMO concluded with the Platinum Award in the sector of Pharmaceutical Companies.    

The Awards are moments of joy and positive reflection. In 2020 DEMO’s support to the State, NGOs and Employees exceeded 1.000.000€ locally and globally.

  • National Health System (Ε.Σ.Υ.)

Donation of 60 monitors for the equipment of the Intensive Care Units of the hospitals in the National Health System (Ε.Σ.Υ.) Also, as a member of the Panhellenic Union of Pharmaceutical Industry, it was one of the companies that pioneered in donating 40 high technology ICU beds to the National Health System.



The company has taken and continues to take all the protective measures indicated by the State for the safety of its employees and has gone beyond them. Implemented the teleworking method, changed the flow of coming to work to avoid overcrowding, distributed thousands of masks to employees, set up “stations” to provide antiseptics, signs with instructions, plexiglass areas in offices and smoking/lunch areas outdoors (kiosks), while Covid tests were performed on all its employees.



In addition, it supported 14 International and Greek Organizations, Non-Governmental Organizations, Prisons, the local community and the Archdiocese with medicines, masks, consumables, medical devices, heating materials, laptops and tablets for distant-education, supported cultural programs.



In the summer of 2020, following the deadly explosion in Beirut, Lebanon, in early August, the company sent medical supplies worth a total of €460,000 to the Agency for International Development Cooperation. The needs of the residents and of the nursing Personnel of Beirut were great, given that half of the city’s hospitals have been ruined.

In 2021, DEMO will continue its program of corporate responsibility and contribution with the main objective of responding to the pandemic, supporting its employees, relieving vulnerable groups and young children as well as municipalities affected by the fires.
