The report “Responsible Business in Poland 2017. Good Practices” issued by the Responsible Business Forum is Poland’s largest overview of CSR activities within a year.
The first editions contained examples of several activities carried out by companies, summarised on a dozen pages. Now, after 16 years, the publication has nearly 200 pages with descriptions of 1,190 good practices: 639 new and 551 long-term ones, which is by 39% and 32% more, respectively, than in the last year’s edition of the report.
The significant increase in the number of practices reflects the growing awareness of the role and importance of CSR solutions.
“We are pleased to present you with the sixteenth Report ‘Responsible Business in Poland 2017. Good Practices’. This is the only such summary of companies’ activities in Poland. However, the publication of the report would not have been possible if it hadn’t been for the increasing involvement of the companies which develop CSR across Poland. We would like to thank them a lot for this. Well done for so many successful and ambitious projects,” said Marzena Strzelczak, Director General of the Responsible Business Forum.
“I trust that the Report will be an interesting reading for you, will encourage you to take further steps and will be an inspiration for new sectoral and cross-sectoral partnerships which will find their place in our next report,” she added.
Companies are increasingly taking a broader view of CSR, which is no longer associated only with simple corporate charity activities, but also include socially responsible solutions embedded in business strategies at various levels in the organisation.
