We support “Kalpakia 2018” and honour the Heroes of World War II

For the fifth consecutive year, Energean supports the events in memory of the Heroes who participated in the Battle of Kalpaki in November 1940, which was actually the first act of resistance in Greece against the Nazi invaders

Energean, which is part of the ongoing hydrocarbon exploration activity in the area, is partially sponsoring the reenactment of the historic Battle of Kalpaki.


Mrs. Ilia Rigas, Energean’s Head of Corporate Social Responsibility stated:


“Once more, we pay tribute to the Heroes who fought in Kalpaki and signaled Greece’s resistance against the forces of the Axis. Furthermore, we are reinforcing the organizers’ aim of promoting Epirus as a region of unique historic and cultural tradition and unparalleled beauty, thus helping it emerge as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece. Sustainable development has always been Energean’s primary goal for the local societies the Company operates within, and such initiatives definitely contribute to making this goal come true”. 



“Kalpakia 2018” are jointly organized by the Epirus Region, the 8th Military Division of Ioannina, the Federation of Pogoni Unions and Affiliates and the Youth Center of Epirus.
