Community Engagement

Grecian Magnesite understands and appreciates the vital role the local community plays in the sustainability of our company. The company has been mining magnesite in the region for more than half a century, and we consider ourselves proud members of the local community.

Grecian Magnesite aims to ensure that our business practices contribute to long-term economic and social development. We act as a responsible and supportive member of the local society, and help create value for the society, develop the local industry and community by using local employees, local service providers and contractors.

We have a strong history of supporting community initiatives in the region where we operate through social events, funding, donations of land, infrastructure and services, in-kind professional support and even just lending a hand where needed.
