Sustainability

Sustainable Development

The world as we know it is constantly changing, and at speeds that are sometimes frightening. The health crisis, the effects of accelerating climate change, the energy crisis and its intensity due to geopolitical conflicts require societies and individuals to develop new strategies on environmental, social and corporate governance issues.

We consider it our duty to adopt policies and ways that will ensure that our footprint on the environment and people will be constructive and effective.

Sustainability Education

We believe that climate change is the defining challenge of our generation.

We’re committed to reduce our carbon emissions by the end of 2030 and continuously improve our standards, which includes energy and water saving, and recycling. Our zero-waste policy also includes organ donations.

In a world where the long- and short-term effects of climate change pose major challenges, the need for sustainable schools has never been more important. That’s why we’ve made a promise to do more for the planet, by taking less.

Durability

In a world where we face significant problems due to both the short- and long-term effects of climate change, sustainable policies are more crucial than ever. We’ve pledged to do more for the environment while consuming less because of this.

ESG

Diversity Equity and Inclusion

Our dedication to creating an inclusive culture

Nannies, penthouses, and €1.000 strollers are privileges. Best-in-class education shouldn’t be.

University acceptance rates are declining, and the number of top-tier school options remains stagnant. The need for equilibrium in the private school system is clear, but who will deliver it?

By balancing a customized curriculum, state of the art classroom design, and cutting edge technology with accessible tuition fees, we offer a fresh opportunity to parents, teachers, and students.

With a vision in place, now you must now build a brand experience to bring this vision to life. The right brand will position the school to lead by example by bringing an accessible solution for top tier education to the world.

We give our staff the freedom to come up with ideas that benefit the client, the school, and the local community.

An organization can only be as successful as the community it serves, which is why we are dedicated to promoting equal opportunities and welcoming varied viewpoints in order to fulfill our purpose.

Our dedication to bringing about long-lasting change

Every year we’re increasing our efforts to offer quality education and improve mastery to our students. In addition, in order to go beyond the conventional school footprint, we are investigating a sustainable strategy.

 

Building a team that is more inclusive, equitable, and diverse

In an effort to increase the diversity of representation in management and leadership, we are reviewing and modernizing our hiring, promotion, and recruitment procedures. In order to make sure that our teams feel seen and heard, we frequently hold internal community meetings. We are dedicated to improving our anti-racism and bias programs.

 

Encouraging our group’s right to vote

We are convinced that enabling our team to participate in our democracy will have a long-lasting effect on our nation’s future. We offer our team members resources and civic education in addition to up to remote work.

 

Volunteering combined with community involvement

With Community Impact Hours, team members who meet the eligibility requirements can take up to 2 hours of paid time off annually to engage in their preferred impact projects and bring about positive changes in their communities.

 

Ecoliteracy

The Model

The Ecoliteracy program is designed to support healthy eating and bring transparency to school nutrition.

The program provides tools for each school to assess their nutrition and sustainability practices and understand how they can make improvements

 

How it works

We grasp that schools need time to alter their menus, sources, and, occasionally, buildings and equipment to accommodate more scratch cooking and modified buying so this is a long-term process.

As the first step in our process each school (district) is assigned a Noutree team member and an independent Dietitian. The Dietitian then carries out a baseline evaluation which helps Noutree develop an action plan for the school and/or the district.

This first phase may take a year or longer. The partnership continues as schools keep advancing and pursuing constant improvement

Why our standards were chosen

Standards and assessment provide school principals with the means to develop nutrition programs. Our food certification program is based on extensive best practice research and incorporates various criteria that measure important KPIs.

Our model aims to be time-tested and represent best practices in the areas of nutrition and sustainability. With different levels of accreditation, our standards allow us to design personalized change paths for each school participating in the program.

Our certification was created to guide and strengthen school food programs at whatever stage they are in the process. The points-based approach highlights what schools are already doing and identifies areas for improvement across standards.

Integrated evidence-based strategy

Nutritionists and industry professionals from restaurants, schools and agriculture have helped develop our standards. We are committed to continued growth. as such, our standards are regularly evaluated and officially reviewed as new scientific knowledge emerges.

A thorough assessment of school food

Not only do our standards look at the ingredients themselves, but also their origin and preparation. We explore the food environment of our suppliers and the ways in which they support and promote food consumption among students and the wider community.

Corporate Social Responsibility

It is strongly believed in Mandoulides Schools that Corporate Social Responsibility must be an integral part of daily action and conscience not only for all entrepreneurs, but also for all citizens who respect themselves and love their country.

 

The concept of offering to fellow human beings and society as well as caring about the environment must be cultivated and instilled in young people from an early age. Schools ought to cultivate these values and provide lessons of humanity, solidarity and respect towards the environment. Mandoulides Schools and the Cultural Athletics Association Evangelos Mantoulidis (MAS Mandoulides), fully abiding by the pedagogical role they have assumed since their establishment in 1978, take on actions and initiatives which designate their social sensitivity and their ongoing interest in the development and progress of society, protection of the environment, education and culture.  
Exhibiting conscientiousness and a sense of responsibility and being fully aware of the fact that responsible behavior leads to sustainable development and prosperity, we conduct actions and take on initiatives related to volunteering.

We are convinced that only when society progresses are its members able to progress and develop.

For this reason, Mandoulides Schools aspire to the acquisition of a high sense of responsibility and social offering on behalf of the students, even from an early stage of their student life.

This is realized through a series of charity actions aimed at offering help towards fellow human beings and society.

 

Our Actions

Scholarship Program

Seeking to guarantee that our students have equal opportunities of access to the benefits of education, we provide financial support to students from low income families and scholarships (full or partial) based on their academic performance, conduct and distinctions in regional, national and international competitions, as well as in sports. We are committed to helping to provide a brighter future for deserving students.

 

 

Deeming that blood donation is an invaluable social offering and knowing that demand for blood is constantly on the increase, we have established a blood bank, where blood donors are volunteers from the teaching, administrative and auxiliary staff of Mandoulides Schools, as well as parents and guardians of our students and alumni.

 

Through the organization of joint actions and events that promote education and culture, we provide to young people of the Greek Expatriates’ community the motivation to cultivate their love for the Greek language, strengthen their ties with Greece and continue their efforts to achieve a better future for their community.

 

To demonstrate concrete support during this period towards the national endeavor to combat the pandemic and towards the struggle of the doctors and the nursing personnel of the country, we have decided to raise money for the purchase of medical equipment to cover the needs of the 3rd University Pediatric Clinic of the Ippokrateio General Hospital of Thessaloniki.

 

The 3rd University Pediatric Clinic of Ippokrateio Hospital in Thessaloniki is the reference center for children from throughout Northern Greece suffering from COVID-19 virus. The clinic is also responsible for the Home Care program that supports children with disabilities. To date, the Home Care program has treated 248 children with serious health problems, facilitating their independence from the Clinic and a safe return to their homes, always with the cooperation and supervision of specialized medical teams of the Clinic.

 

Through various events, such as the Christmas Charity Bazaar and Fair, we reinforce the work of worthwhile established charity organizations and contribute to their endeavor to deal with social problems.

Aiming to make students aware of the need for volunteerism and to contribute to the smile of their fellow human beings.

 

Volunteering nurtures the values of solidarity and humanity in practice and brings people together. Through such acts of love and solidarity, our students gain valuable experiences and learn to offer and care for our fellow human beings.

 

We cultivate environmental consciousness and love for the environment through a series of engaging environmental actions. For this reason, the Green Flag of Ecological Schools has been awarded to Mandoulides Schools for several years.
