Environmentally friendly behaviors of employees
On 22 March 2018, on the occasion of the World Water Day, an educational campaign for employees was run at PZU all over Poland to promote environmentally friendly habits. As part of follow-up activities, Green PZU stickers were placed in the restrooms and kitchens, promoting the saving of water, energy and paper. In turn, on 22 April 2018, during the Earth Day, the topic of the Company’s newsletter was pollution caused by plastic. Then, on 5 June 2018, on the occasion of the Environmental Protection Day, messages were displayed encouraging employees to reduce their use of plastic disposable products.
Link4 runs a regular campaign to collect light bulbs, bottle caps and e-waste.
The Pekao Group and the Alior Group conduct educational campaigns promoting energy conservation, water saving, selective waste collection and responsible waste recycling.
The companies reduce the consumption of office supplies, in particular of paper and printer toner. Environmentally friendly prints and forms are deployed and the number of printers keeps declining due to the policy of using shared multifunction devices. The banks also use the services of specialized recycling firms.
The car fleet also underwent environmentally friendly changes. PZU and PZU Życie currently use smaller cars that are economical and utilize alternative sources of propulsion. 134 hybrid-drive cars were purchased and four electric cars were rented.
