The strategic approach to corporate social responsibility has been defined in the Company's Responsibility Policy, in which the Group undertakes to act for the development of society by improving the level of life of citizens and simultaneous creation of the value for shareholders, employees and other stakeholders. The Policy applies to the entire Group, to all companies.
In 2018, we were implementing the "2016-2020 Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy for the Budimex Group". The CSR strategy is consistent with the business strategy and refers directly to it. Based on the assumptions of the CSR strategy and key responsibility areas of the Budimex Group, eight priorities of social responsibility were identified. They were assigned with specific activities and Key Performance Indicators (KPI), whose implementation is regularly monitored and enforced. Specific objectives and performance indicators were defined, which should be achieved during that four-year period, and mid-range targets, approved and regularly monitored by the CSR Committee.
The Corporate Responsibility Principles included therein have been developed based on the Global Compact Guidelines:
- Ethical and responsible conduct in all activities;
- Respect for human rights;
- Transparency and application of best practices in corporate governance;
- Contribution to the socio-economic development;
- Reduction of environmental impact, fighting climate change and efficient resource management;
- Promotion of responsible supply chain activities;
- Protection of health and safety of employees and contribution to equality, diversity and balance between work and private life;
- Innovation as an element of competitiveness and value creation;
- Stakeholder engagement;
- Financial stability and long-term perspective.
The CSR Committee and the Communications Department are responsible for their implementation.
