Emitel, the largest operator of terrestrial radio and television infrastructure in Poland and a partner of Legia Warszawa football club since 2018, has provided substantive and financial support for the largest aid campaign for senior citizens organised in Warsaw.

#READYTOHELP is the first comprehensive support campaign in Warsaw, which provides actual and direct assistance to seniors during the epidemic. The participants of the campaign include top companies operating on the Polish market, as well as institutions, social organisations, public figures and individuals, who operate out of Legia Stadium. The multifaceted support activities include launching a free helpline for seniors – 800 919 160, co-financing and delivering meals for senior citizens, grocery shopping, offering technological support, assistance related to telecommunications, computers and using the Internet, and a Talk Line.

Emitel, who has been Legia Warszawa’s technological partner since 2018, decided to join the project. On hybrid TV channel 89, terrestrial television recipients can watch the content and media presented by the club, training matches and reports from the most important events in the life of the club.

The COVID-19 pandemic is not only an enormous business challenge, but also a test in social responsibility. That is why we decided to join the #READYTOHELP campaign organised by Legia Warszawa football club, which provides help for seniors and people in need during the pandemic. The involvement of Emitel is the best proof of the company’s social sensitivity and our willingness to always help those in need, said Andrzej J. Kozłowski, President of the Management Board of Emitel S.A. We support the campaign financially, we also offer substantive support, with our call centre specialists providing knowledge and information concerning receiving TV and radio signal. We also encouraged our Staff to take part in volunteering activities connected with the #READYTOHELP campaign. We are all more or less affected by the restrictions introduced due to the epidemic, but I encourage everybody to join in helping those in need, President Kozłowski added.

The #READYTOHELP campaign is organised under the auspices of the Capital City of Warsaw and Voivode of Mazovia.

Once again, the Responsible Business Forum has presented its “Responsible Business in Poland. Good Practices” report, which is the most comprehensive CSR review in Poland, with a record number of responsible business activities featured.

In total, the 2019 report contains 1696 practices reported by 214 companies. Good CSR practices implemented by Emitel have been included in this publication once again.

2019 can be considered a year of the natural environment, and the latest “Responsible Business in Poland. Good Practices” report proves this. We have recorded a noticeable increase in the number of ‘environmental’ practices despite the cap on the number of new activities that can be reported. Companies opt for environmental solutions because this has become a key topic for a wide range of stakeholders. This is a positive change that we believe companies will continue to drive. Naturally, the first quarter of 2020 has shown that business is facing further, urgent challenges in the social domain. The crises related to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic has proven that companies can respond quickly, providing help and support. (…).However, environmental issues are equally important – it is essential that they are not marginalised. The greatest test for corporate responsibility of businesses and confirmation that sustainable development is actually in their DNA is yet to come. However, constraint is often – especially in business – an impulse for exceptional creativity and coming up with solutions that respond to social, economic and environmental needs across a range of dimensions. Small organisations or start-ups are not the only example here. We profoundly believe that you will find a reflection of such practices in our next – 2020 report. Before this happens, please read and look for inspiration in the 2019 Report”, says Marzena Strzelczak, General Director of Responsible Business Forum.

In its latest social engagement report, Emitel sums up the key events in the area of activities undertaken in the field of environmental protection, corporate social responsibility and corporate governance.

Emitel conducts its business in a responsible manner. In its daily operations and strategic plans, the company combines the pursuit of business objectives with actions that respond to the diverse needs of all stakeholder groups – customers, employees, business partners, shareholders and local communities. The way the company operates on a daily basis and the principles it upholds are described in the 2019 Social Involvement Report, which is now available for you to read at your leisure.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is an enormous business challenge for many companies. But that’s not all. Just like patients, who are tested for the virus, companies around the world are currently undergoing a social responsibility test. These moments of the most difficult trials verify our empathy and willingness to help. I am convinced that Emitel has been passing this test, taking place in such exceptional circumstances. I encourage you to read the report in which we present our activities in the Environmental, Social, and Governance areas undertaken last year. I would also like to take this opportunity to wish you all a lot of health and perseverance, as well as joyful, warm and peaceful Easter. Let us spend that time in a responsible manner and stay home,” said Andrzej J. Kozłowski, President of the Management Board of Emitel S.A.

Emitel is one of the top Polish companies in terms of corporate social responsibility, as evidenced by the numerous awards and distinctions received by the company. The year 2019 was particularly abundant in various awards from institutions, which have appreciated our work. These include the distinction in the 42nd edition of the CSR Report, Human Capital Investor Award, Employee-Friendly Employer Award, Human Resource Management Leader Award, Trustworthy Employer Award and the Investor in Human Capital emblem. This focus also results in very high scores in the GRESB Survey, in which Emitel has been participating for a number of years now, which is also reflected in the report.

On the occasion of the International Bird Day, which falls on 1 April, Emitel encourages you to watch a live broadcast from a peregrine falcon nest located on a tower in Dobra near Nowogard (West Pomeranian Voivodeship), which belongs to the company. Now is the best time to watch, as a pair of falcons are preparing to raise their young. At present, there are three eggs in the nest, from which young falcons should hatch after about 4 weeks. The falcons are under the care and supervision of the “Falcon” Society for Wild Animals, which has established a nest for them on a tower in Dobra as part of an EU grant. For the time being, the falcons have not accepted the target nest, but they are using a temporary one, additionally installed by the Society. A live preview is available on the Society’s website at http://peregrinus.pl/dobra.

Emitel has made space available for a nest for a pair of falcons on its premises in Dobra, has financed cameras and is carrying out online broadcasts. We are happy to work with the “Falcon” Society and engage in such activities, because we are not indifferent to the fate of endangered bird species”, said Andrzej Kozłowski, President of the Management Board of Emitel S.A. “We have begun talks with the association with a view to using our other facilities, located all over the country, in terms of nesting this protected bird species”, he added.

Emitel also supports broadcasts from the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw, where falcons have been nesting since 1998. Here, falcons are also waiting for hatchlings, and the female has laid 4 eggs. The camera view is available at http://peregrinus.pl/pl/warszawa-pkin-podglad-z-warszawy.

International Bird Day, established by the ratification of the International Convention for the Protection of Birds Useful to Agriculture of 19 March 1902, has been celebrated annually since 1906. Its aim is to draw attention to the dangers faced by birds and to encourage people to get involved in their protection. Poland joined the convention in 1932.

The peregrine falcon is one of the rarest species in Poland. Peregrine falcons became extinct in our country in the 1960s as a result of pollution of the environment – and thus their food – with pesticides, mainly DDT, used in agriculture. Since the 1990s, we have been working to restore the peregrine falcon species. Currently, there are over 40 breeding pairs in Poland, and we hope that there will be more of them every year. Thanks to falcon lovers and companies supporting us, such as Emitel, you can now watch a dozen or so pairs of falcons live”, said Sławomir Sielicki, President of the “Falcon” Society for Wild Animals.
