The report, published annually by the Responsible Business Forum, entitled “Responsible Business in Poland. Good Practices” is the largest review of CSR initiatives in Poland.  In its 20th edition, a total of 1,677 activities undertaken by 283 companies were presented. The analysis of the submitted initiatives shows, inter alia, growing social expectations of businesses taking responsibility for their impact on the environment.

In the anniversary edition of the Responsible Business Forum report, several changes were introduced. There was a decision made not to include practices that were strictly equity-related and not related to activities at the strategic level or not having the value of innovation. Additionally, as in the previous year, the organizers set a limit of ten new practices submitted by one company. This time, this limitation also applied to long-term practices. These changes were aimed at persuading companies to report CSR activities that bring new quality.

The report published by FOB once again included good CSR practices undertaken by Emitel. Among them are: counteracting inappropriate behaviour and abuse, equal opportunities in the workplace, occupational health and safety, social dialogue within the company, development and education, digitization of the workplace, Mindfullnes Academy and health promotion. In the search engine for good practices on the website you can see a total of 34 practices reported by Emitel.

– We understand corporate social responsibility as caring for employees, the broadly understood environment of the company and sensitivity to diversity issues. Last year, we approved the ESG Policy for 2021-2025, and for each direction we assigned the corresponding global UN Sustainable Development Goals. It is an important document for the Company, defining main goals of our activities in the area of the natural environment, social responsibility and corporate governance. I am glad that the Responsible Business Forum once again acknowledges our actions, taking into account even more of Emitel’s good practices in its report – said Andrzej J. Kozłowski, the President of the Management Board of Emitel S.A.

The “Responsible Business in Poland. Good Practices” report is the most important periodical publication of the Responsible Business Forum, published since 2002. The report is a review of the activities of companies that reported their CSR activities, and summarizes the most important issues related to responsible business in a given year in Poland.
