INTRODUCTION

Janusz Piechociński

Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Economy

I am pleased to see that for a number of years, the Management Board of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. has been incorporating in its business strategy the social and environmental aspects of its operations and the relationships with different groups of stakeholders.

Building an image of a trustworthy business partner is nowadays becoming a crucial element of the competitive advantage. It is also of significance in light of the challenges posed by the modern economy the objective of which, according to the Europe 2020 strategy, is to create favourable conditions for intelligent and sustainable economic growth, taking into account the needs of the society and of the natural environment.

Achievement of the ambitious objectives can be made easier by the European funds. One of the key assumptions of the New Financial Perspective 2014–2020 is to increase innovativeness of Polish companies through revision of the business models, internal organisation systems and terms of collaboration with the social partners. A survey conducted by the Responsible Business Forum in 2012 (”Joint Responsibility: the Role of Innovation”) showed that 97% of companies with CSR strategies had already implemented state-of-the-art solutions. This means that CSR contributes to the growth of innovation and innovation builds competitive advantage and improves financial performance.

Therefore, I truly appreciate the efforts undertaken by KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. to develop a corporate social responsibility strategy and actively implement its objectives. I have also been looking with great interest at the commitment and initiatives of KGHM and the Polish Copper Foundation aimed at supporting prestigious cultural events and scientific, educational and medical institutions, saving historical monuments and maintaining relationships with the Polish communities abroad.

I am positive that the Company will attain its vision and will become a steadily growing global leader taking care of the common good and sustainable management of resources.
