– In recent years, we have been particularly convinced of the importance of the ability to deal not only with everyday problems related to running a business, but with what is happening around us in our close and more distant environment. Alarming signals from scientists and experts on climate change, challenges related to the pandemic – which, although temporarily dormant – still remain valid, the war in Ukraine and the need to help our neighbours have all caused more and more companies to change their management philosophy, paying more attention to social responsibility issues.  This philosophy of running a business is very dear to to us at Emitel, which is why we constantly ask ourselves – what else can we do, whether our approach is optimal. I am very happy and proud of our promotion to the top 10 companies, because this is the best tool to verify whether we are going in the right direction – said Andrzej Kozłowski – President of the Management Board of Emitel S.A.

The Responsible Companies Ranking, published for the first time in 2007, is the only list of companies operating in Poland assessed in terms of the quality of corporate social responsibility (CSR) management. The Responsible Business Forum is a partner of ROF 2022. The content partner responsible for reviewing the responses is Deloitte, and the media partner is Dziennik Gazeta Prawna. The authors of the list are prof. Bolesław Rok from the Center for Positive Impact Entrepreneurship Research at Kozminski University and Jarosław Horodecki, analyst.

For the 16th time, the largest companies in Poland made an attempt to gather all relevant answers in one place, i.e. in the survey of the Responsible Companies Ranking 2022. This year, we put even greater emphasis on assessing the level of implementation of various declarations and policies in the field of sustainable management. We proposed many product indicators, because the real change is best seen at the level of product innovations.” – commented prof. Bolesław Rok from the Kozminski University, author of the questions included in the survey.

In total, almost 250 largest companies operating on the Polish market have already participated in the Responsible Companies Ranking. The ranking makes it possible to compare the results in individual areas of CSR between companies, and is also a valuable instrument facilitating the organization and development of business responsibility strategies.
