PANATHINAIKOS BC has proven and continues to prove that it is close to the community and society at large and returns in every way possible the love that people has been showing the team all these years. 

One of the main programs that knows no boundaries is «One Team» - Basketball is Everywhere. Panathinaikos BC Superfoods in cooperation with the governing body Euroleague dynamically participates in the program that the objective is to help vulnerable social groups. Panathinaikos BC Superfoods for the last three years has chosen to work with the Juvenile Detention Centre in Corinth. Through basketball juvenile detainees (15-18eton age) receive knowledge of the sport and will learn values such as teamwork, cooperation, solidarity and respect.

It is well known that each year the team visits various benefit foundations and institutions at Christmas time. However, the charitable activities do not stop at that. Panathinaikos has collaborated with various agencies, including Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Frontiers), the Hellenic Red Cross, the Hellenic Society for the Protection and Rehabilitation of Children with a Disability (ELEPAP), UNICEF, the Penteli Orphanage, the “MITERA” Orphanage, MARASLEIOS, the “MARGARITA” foundation for people with special needs, the SOS Children’s village, the “Aghia Sophia” Children’s Hospital Oncology unit, various Animal Welfare Unions, penitentiaries, schools, academies, municipalities and municipal sports organizations, while it has also participated in numerous campaigns against substance abuse, and informative campaigns on health-related issues and environmental issues.

The awareness activities of the team know no boundaries; this is why Panathinaikos has implemented 2 corporate social responsibility programs: the “I love Greece”, which concerns activities throughout the entire Greek territory, and the “I love the World”, which concerns activities that take place in the rest of the world.

Here below, you can see a detailed analysis of the various fields of corporate social responsibility programs that Panathinaikos is actively involved in, both within and outside Greek boarders, as well as some of the actions that have been implemented in each field:

  • Participation in the International Energy Day, by symbolically turning off power in all club stores for an hour.
