News Emitel good practices of CSR in Responsible Business Forum Report

Once again, the Responsible Business Forum has presented its “Responsible Business in Poland. Good Practices” report, which is the most comprehensive CSR review in Poland, with a record number of responsible business activities featured.

In total, the 2019 report contains 1696 practices reported by 214 companies. Good CSR practices implemented by Emitel have been included in this publication once again.

2019 can be considered a year of the natural environment, and the latest “Responsible Business in Poland. Good Practices” report proves this. We have recorded a noticeable increase in the number of ‘environmental’ practices despite the cap on the number of new activities that can be reported. Companies opt for environmental solutions because this has become a key topic for a wide range of stakeholders. This is a positive change that we believe companies will continue to drive. Naturally, the first quarter of 2020 has shown that business is facing further, urgent challenges in the social domain. The crises related to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic has proven that companies can respond quickly, providing help and support. (…).However, environmental issues are equally important – it is essential that they are not marginalised. The greatest test for corporate responsibility of businesses and confirmation that sustainable development is actually in their DNA is yet to come. However, constraint is often – especially in business – an impulse for exceptional creativity and coming up with solutions that respond to social, economic and environmental needs across a range of dimensions. Small organisations or start-ups are not the only example here. We profoundly believe that you will find a reflection of such practices in our next – 2020 report. Before this happens, please read and look for inspiration in the 2019 Report”, says Marzena Strzelczak, General Director of Responsible Business Forum.
