In a report published just now, Emitel summarized the actions it took in 2022 in the areas of ESG, i.e. environmental protection, social responsibility, and corporate governance.

2022 was a very intensive year for Emitel, both strategically and operationally. The company gained a new owner, Cordiant Digital Infrastructure Limited, a fund that invests in digital infrastructure assets in the UK, Europe, and North America. In the middle of the year, Emitel ended refarming the 700 MHz band and changing the standard of digital terrestrial television broadcasting. It was one of the most complex and demanding projects in the company’s history, and nearly 300 experts worked on it for 130,000 man-hours.

Environmental, social, and corporate governance concerns are the standards by which business leaders operate. Such ideas are also important for the company, which has been appreciated, because Emitel in the periodic survey GRESB (Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark) was among the best companies among the 649 participating in the study, earning 93 points and finishing 5th in its category.

– Social responsibility, environmental concerns, respect for, and adherence to the highest standards of corporate governance have been our priority for years. We focus on the development of our employees, paying particular attention to initiatives supporting equal opportunities in the framework of internal promotions, or equal pay for women and men. We are actively involved in charities and employee volunteering. We have also been focusing on cooperation with science for years, supporting selected cultural events and sports initiatives. As usual, we wanted to shed more light on these actions in our annual ESG report. – said Andrzej J. Kozłowski, President of the Management Board, Emitel S.A.

Last year, the company undertook numerous initiatives in support of war-torn Ukraine and refugees residing in Poland. In cooperation with Polish broadcasters, Emitel launched radio and television broadcasts in Ukrainian and adapted one of the administrative buildings in Poznań, which is used by mothers with children seeking refuge from the war. Importantly, the finishing works were carried out by the employees themselves of Emitel as part of the employee volunteering. The transfer of several batches of radiotelecommunication equipment for the reconstruction of the broadcasting network in Ukraine has made it possible to resume and maintain a stable transmission of the television signal in the liberated areas of Ukraine.

Emitel is continuously raising its standards of human capital management. For the attention to the well-being of employees, close communication, and creating opportunities for their development, Emitel has been awarded the title of Top Employer Polska for the fourth time. In turn, the Responsible Business Forum in its report presented further good CSR practices taken by Emitel, such as counteracting improper behavior and abuse, equal opportunities in the workplace, health, and safety at work, social dialog within the company, development, and education, digitalization of workplace, Mindfulness Academy or health promotion. The CSR Silver Leaf was awarded to the company for its activities in the field of sustainable development, environmental protection, social responsibility, and corporate governance
