Sustainable development implies managing our planet's resources in such a way as not to decrease our chances of meeting the needs of future generations.
Our actions, thoughts, and actions have an enormous impact on how our planet functions now and will continue to do so. The condition of the planet in the future depends on how we treat it today.
For this reason, it's not just about changing habits, but also about creating awareness and educating.
Three of the 17 United Nations goals identified in its resolution on September 25, 2015 have been chosen by our employees as being the most important. They include measures to combat climate change and its effects, to achieve gender equality and strengthen the role of women, as well as to combat digital exclusion.
Our goal is zero CO₂ emissions by 2030. We have started investment in the use of electricity generated by renewable energy sources (RES). In 2021,
we started activities under the "EKO Flota" program, which will allow
us to reduce CO₂ emissions by 37.5% by 2025. As a result, 80% of our fleet will be made up of more ecological and environmentally friendly cars.
As part of our environmental activities, we also take care of bees and hives - we have our own apiary. As a result, we gave the house to 150 thousand bees and the honey they make goes to our employees.
In addition, we care about our surroundings, which is why we have implemented an initiative of planting honey plants in the city and run
a clean-up campaign with our employees every year.
At the end of 2021, we created a special team "Planet Mates" for people from our organization who are particularly passionate about ecology and environmental protection.
We assist professionally active women in developing self-esteem and striving for career advancement. We create a space for women to combine their professional and private lives, and, thanks to that, fulfill themselves on a professional level. Women currently make up nearly 30% of our management staff. We also achieve equal levels of salary for equivalent positions.
Through our open office formula and flexible working hours, we support women coming back from maternity leave, enabling them to re-enter the workforce. We run a number of webinars and workshops for women in our organization. Our #KobietyJakRakiety series also recognizes outstanding women in the company each month.
This pillar of our sustainable development strategy is the most connected to the scope of our activity. Over the years, our mission has been to build and maintain a reliable, sustainable, and stable fiber-optic network. We carry out various activities and investments whose goal is to provide equal access to high-speed Internet for as many people as possible.
We are the largest recipient of subsidized programs in Poland, supporting the construction of fiber-optic networks in areas that have never previously had fiber-optic network access.
However, we want to do more - that's why we build our networks with the latest Fiber-to-The-Home (FTTH) technology.
All of the networks we build are open networks. This means that we make them available to all interested telecommunications service operators. Thanks to that, the residents of our country can use the Internet in a fast, safe,
and stable manner. Not only is this model the future of telecommunications,
but it is also the best way to use our planet's resources.
