Yet again, LPP has been recognised for its actions geared towards sustainable development and ESG in “Listki CSR” [“the CSR Leaves”] poll organized by “Polityka” weekly. This year, the Polish apparel company received two awards – the Golden Leaf for all its activities from an environmental, social and corporate governance perspective, and the Green Leaf, awarded for the first time to companies for which reducing their negative climate impact is a key element of their business operations.

For the eleventh time, “Polityka” weekly invited Polish companies to take part in the CSR Leaves competition, encouraging them to analyse their solutions supporting sustainable development and social involvement in the ESG model, i.e. those related to the management of the following areas: environment, society and corporate governance. In cooperation with the Deloitte consulting company and the Responsible Business Forum, the awards were granted to companies whose actions for sustainable development are implemented as part of their coherent strategy, based on international standards. In this year’s edition,  21 companies, including LPP, out of 126 entries were awarded the Golden Leaf by the jury.

– We are very pleased that the consistency with which we implement our sustainable development strategy has been appreciated by the jury of the competition yet again. We consider the Golden Leaf as a reflection of our long-term commitment to activities supporting the responsible approach to LPP development in the ESG model. We also see it as an appreciation of the quality and reliability of reporting projects that limit the environmental impact of the company’s operations – says Sławomir Ronkowski, Internal Communications and CSR Director, LPP.

To highlight the importance of climate transformation within business strategies of companies, a new category of the Green CSR Leaf was introduced for the first time this year. LPP was one of 14 organisations awarded with this distinction. The laureates were recognised for their commitment to solutions that exert a positive impact on the environment, such as calculating the carbon footprint and reporting the results, or creating strategies that include climate neutrality and education.

– It is now impossible to remain indifferent to climate change. Companies should feel accountable for the environmental impact of their operations. Here at LPP, we have been striving for years to achieve our reduction targets. We are proud that our pro-ecological activities have been recognised in Poland. The award obliges us and motivates to implement further long-term projects in this area – adds Sławomir Ronkowski.
