Just as the activity of Ignacy Łukasiewicz, essentially ahead of legal commitments and regulations, at present – Corporate Social Responsibility – or CSR – is by definition a legally unforced, voluntary activity of the company. The essence of corporate social responsibility is to go beyond legal precepts and to do more than necessary. It can be said that corporate social responsibility and sustainable development is the philosophy of the corporate activity, and ascribing into its business strategy activities that, while contributing to the growth of the company, also support its farther and closer environment or, more generally, its stakeholders. And it is as such, as a long-term, strategic approach, that PGNiG and, in broader terms, companies belonging to the PGNiG Capital Group, understand this notion.
We pursue this activity in four main areas: Market, Workplace, Local Communities and Environment.
Responsible Business Forum:
Responsible business is the responsibility of enterprises for their impact on society. Respecting applicable legislation and collective agreements between social partners is a prerequisite to fulfil the obligations arising from this responsibility. To fully fulfil these obligations, the company should have a mechanism for integrating social, environmental, ethical issues as well as those related to human rights and the problems of consumers with their operation and core strategy in close cooperation with stakeholders, in order to:
- maximize the creation of shared values for their owners / shareholders, other stakeholders and society as a whole;
- identify, prevent and mitigate their possible adverse effects.
