ESG stands for: Environment, Social Responsibility, Corporate Governance – these are areas to which we pay particular attention in the development strategy of Velvet CARE.
A modern and responsible company not only pursues business objectives or meets legal and formal requirements but also, or perhaps most importantly, places great emphasis on the way in which it operates. Investing in environmental protection, human resources and stakeholder relations, as well as a sense of social responsibility are all essential aspects of such behaviour.
In each area, we undertake a number of actions in a planned and responsible manner.
“The implementation of ESG standards at Velvet CARE officially began in 2019 as we started our cooperation with ABRIS. However, many of these standards have long been part of the company’s strategy. The implementation process of ESG is scheduled for the next five years and is one of the most crucial strategic items of our long-term strategy “Velvet CARE 2025”.
We are convinced that ESG standards are an essential element of company value, so we approach their implementation with utmost commitment. In 2019, the following priorities were achieved in their entirety: anti-corruption policy and the Code of Ethics, the appointment of the Ethics Spokesman and the Commission on Ethics and the start of cooperation with the Line of Ethics combined with the implementation of the whistle-blowing procedure. Moreover, we also conducted a full analysis of Velvet CARE’s carbon footprint and developed our corporate strategy Eco Agenda 2025. Artur Pielak, President of the Management Board
