RESPECT for TP for the Sixth Time - Orange Polska

The Warsaw Stock Exchange has published the new composition of its RESPECT Index. Like in all previous editions, Telekomunikacja Polska (Orange Polska) has been included in this prestigious group of companies which follow the highest corporate social responsibility standards.

The sixth edition of the index comprises 20 companies which implement corporate social responsibility (CSR) principles in all areas of business functioning. They are characterised by comprehensive CSR management and diligent responding to the environment needs and expectations. The RESPECT Index aims to popularise a strategic approach to corporate social responsibility. In order to be included in the index portfolio, it has not been sufficient for a company to carry out social campaigns or charitable activities; the Index participants need to demonstrate that they follow CSR principles in both on the business strategy level and in everyday business practice.

Telekomunikacja Polska has been included in the index portfolio owing to its comprehensive CSR management and a strategic approach to CSR based on a dialogue with its stakeholders: customers, the regulator, employees, non-governmental organisations and a number of other entities. It enables the company to update its knowledge of the environment needs and expectations and account for them in its business initiatives.

The RESPECT Index is increasingly popular among companies, which tend to treat CSR as an instrument of active business risk reduction and sustained growth. It is also becoming a tool for investors, who have noticed a link between consideration for corporate governance and for social and environmental impact and the company’s financial performance.

The RESPECT Index project was launched in November 2009. It is the first index of socially responsible companies in the Central and Eastern Europe. The project is carried out by the Warsaw Stock Exchange in conjunction with external partners.
