The company from Włocławek, a member of the ORLEN Group, is one of the 66 companies in the whole of Poland whose activities in the area of corporate social responsibility have been recognised by the weekly POLITYKA. This year’s edition enjoyed a record number of participants—115 enterprises. It was the fourth time that the editorial team had distinguished ANWIL and awarded the company a White CSR Leaf.
For seven years now, POLITYKA has carried out a survey among the largest Polish companies concerning corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainable development. Companies that are proud of their activities in this area and at the same time wish to undergo an assessment by independent experts answer questions prepared by the weekly’s editorial staff in cooperation with the consulting company Deloitte. The questions concern the ISO 26000 standard, covering: organisational governance, human rights, labour practices, environmental protection, consumer issues, fair operating practices, and community involvement.
Based on the surveys submitted, the organisers select companies that manage their influence on their surroundings most effectively, and award them with a Gold, Silver or White CSR Leaf. This year, ANWIL received a White CSR Leaf for the fourth time.
– ANWIL makes all efforts not only to be one of the leaders of Polish economy and the largest employer in the region, but mainly to deserve to be called a socially responsible company. The scale and the reach of our activities in this area is best evidenced by the fact that the good practices of our company are noticed and appreciated by independent experts. Only last year, we won POLITYKA’s White CSR Leaf, a gold medal from the Investment Market magazine in recognition of consistent implementation of solutions to improve occupational safety, and a medal for services for the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship, and we received the title of Solid Employer. The company enjoyed its first success in the year 2018 last month, when the Responsible Business Forum (RBF) appreciated as many as 13 initiatives implemented by ANWIL for the benefit of its employees, the local community, the environment, and the building of relations with stakeholders. We continue to be on a winning streak, with May bringing another award—a White CSR Leaf – emphasises Agnieszka Żyro, President of the Management Board of ANWIL S.A.
