Sponsorship & Charity

METROPOL Group pays much attention to charitable activities, which are of great importance not only for the organizations that receive the financial support, but for everyone involved with the group, since the recognition and support of universal values is a critical element of our corporate culture. Charity reminds us of the important things in life outside the office—the society in which we live and what it means to be a part of it.
