Green Frog Award 2016 for Bogdanka

The LW Bogdanka Group’s Integrated Report for 2015 (published in 2016) was recognised in the prestigious contest for the Deloitte Central European Sustainability Report Award, commonly referred to as the Green Frog Award (GFA).

On 19 April 2017 in Warsaw, the representatives of the Lublin mine, including the President of the Management Board Krzysztof Szlaga, had the pleasure to collect the main award. Five countries participated in the contest: Croatia, Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, and Hungary. A total of 65 reports were submitted to the national level, 13 out of them advanced to the regional level, and 5 competed for the main award. The Green Frog Award was launched in 2009 in Hungary and gradually widened its scope to embrace other countries of the Central Europe.  Since 2015 the GFA has been divided into two levels: national and regional. Reports which receive an award or a distinction at the national level automatically qualify for the regional level.

“Members of the jury recognised the Integrated Report of Lubelski Węgiel Bogdanka S.A. for showing strong ties between indicators and CSR issues, and for demonstrating great understanding of human rights. The judges representing such institutions as ACCA, Ethical Corporation, GRI, Polish Ministry of Development, Hungarian Business Council for Sustainable Development (BCSDH) also appreciated the way Bogdanka described the dialogue with the stakeholders before an investment is made, which shows a sensible approach to Corporate Social Responsibility,” says Irena Pichola, Partner, Deloitte’s Sustainable Development Team Leader for Poland and Central Europe.

We would like to congratulate the contestants, above all for the fact that by publishing integrated reports they are able to clearly communicate all the information about their organisations to the stakeholders, including both financial information and information which goes deeper and further than the finances and at the same time makes it possible to correctly interpret financial results and reliably assess the entire organisation.

We are glad that as a raw-material part of the Enea Group we can contribute to the development of transparency and complexity of reporting, both in Poland and in a wider European context.

Above all, however, we must emphasise the enormous contribution and commitment of all the people – employees of Bogdanka and third parties – who shaped the final wording and format of the document, and earned its recognition in the eyes of the jury.
