PKP Energetyka S.A. a signatory of the Polish Business Declaration on sustainable development.

On May 28th of this year, there was a ceremonial signing of the Polish Business Declaration on sustainable development. On behalf of PKP Energetyka, the document was signed by Grzegorz Grabowski, member of the Management Board and Commercial Director. During the meeting, the “Vision of sustainable development for Polish Business 2050” was also presented, including that of the energy sector.

The vision of sustainable development was created by way of consultation conducted by the consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, in cooperation with the Ministry of Economy, Responsible Business Forum and in consultation with representatives of more than 150 companies and institutions. The report defines the major challenges and identifies the actions needed to achieve the objectives of sustainable development. Among the six priority areas within this field, the following were included: social capital, human capital, infrastructure, natural resources, quality of the state and public institutions, as well as energy.

For the signatories of the last area – including PKP Energetyka S.A. – it is necessary to make strategic decisions regarding energy sources and creation of relevant regulations to ensure stability of the law. New regulations must have a reference to the objectives of reducing CO2 emissions and to the energy certificate system. According to the authors of the report, it is also necessary to challenge the partners with requirements regarding the supply chain to optimise energy consumption and the use of renewable sources.

Polish “Vision 2050” was announced just before the United Nations Conference Rio +20 – through the meeting of global leaders, within which they discussed the key challenges regarding sustainable development.
