Żabka with two CSR Leaves of Polityka and a distinction for good practice
The weekly magazine “Polityka” appreciated the active efforts of Żabka in the areas of sustainable development, environmental protection, social responsibility, and corporate governance, awarding the chain another year in a row with the Golden CSR Leaf. For the second time, Żabka has been awarded the Green CSR Leave, which has been awarded since last year to companies whose key action is to reduce their climate impact. The company was also recognized for its good practices in stores for closing the circulation of raw materials. Only 5 organizations, out of 127 entries including Żabka, received the three awards in total. The results of the 12th edition of the CSR Leaves of POLITYKA were announced during the gala, which took place on June 13 in Warsaw.
Żabka believes that the future depends on every little decision made here and now, so it carries out many pro-environmental activities, encouraging and involving customers, employees, franchisees, and business partners. Aware that responsibility in business and action for sustainable development is the basis for creating the financial and non-financial value of organizations, it consistently enhances their scope. It actively and continuously strives to minimize its negative environmental impact, working to reduce the energy intensity of operations, seeking low- and zero-emission energy sources, testing innovative green technologies, and encouraging consumers to make planet-friendly choices.
The weekly “Polityka” awarded the chain with the Golden and Green CSR Leaf once again and appreciated just such activities carried out by the multidisciplinary team of employees of Żabka.
The Golden, Silver, and White CSR Leaves of POLITYKA have been awarded for the twelfth time, based on an analysis of the survey completed by the companies, prepared following the guidelines of the ISO 26000 standard on the fundamental principles of social responsibility and the European Standards of Reporting for Sustainable Development and the latest ESG trends. This year, for the second time, the editorial team also awarded the Green CSR Leaves for companies, for which reducing the negative impact on the climate, preventing and adapting to climate change are key elements of strategic activities in business and relations with stakeholders, including suppliers, business partners, employees, and customers.
The CSR Leaves of POLITYKA were also accompanied by a review of initiatives supporting the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. This year, as in the previous year, companies were asked to share good practices that relate to Objective 12 (responsible consumption and production) and Objective 13 (protection of the environment and climate). Żabka was awarded for closing the circulation of raw materials in the stores belonging to the chain.
Technical partners of the CSR Leaves of POLITYKA are Deloitte consulting company and the Responsible Business Forum.
