Sustainability

At MINERVA we have the greatest respect for the environment and the sustainability of its wealth-producing resources. Fully conscious of the importance that sustainability has for development, MINERVA actively participates in the global initiative for Sustainable Development.

Looking ahead with an innovative and pioneering spirit, MINERVA has been producing Horio sustainable Extra Virgin olive oil, since its launch in 2011, using Good Agricultural Practices (cultivating the olive grove with gentle methods that do not impose a heavier burden on the environment, limiting the use of pesticides, reducing the carbon footprint, making full use of by-products, optimal water consumption, etc.). This marks the first step in creating a range of products and actions that will follow in the years to come.

MINERVA enhances the sustainability and viability of the Greek countryside and of its residing population by actively participating in the global initiative to preserve and enhance the riches that man enjoys from nature. Given that natural resources are not inexhaustible and that the communities living off of them need support into to preserve their viability, sustainability is now an urgent need that requites regular care, on a national and international level. MINERVA plans and implements the vision of Sustainable Development in order to achieve maximum enjoyment of the goods that the environment has without affecting the natural production of these goods in sufficient quantities for generations to come, always taking into account the protection of the environment and the viability of its wealth.
