Efficiently Managed Business Partner

KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. has been included in the Respect Index listing companies guided by the principles of corporate social responsibility since its launch in 2009. The purpose of the index is to distinguish companies managed in a responsible and sustainable way and to emphasize their investment attractiveness through emphasis on the quality of reporting, investor relationships and corporate governance. According to the survey ”Investment Decisions and Responsible Business” conducted in 2012 by the Warsaw Stock Exchange, as many as 58% of Polish investors agree that companies which pay attention to environmental and social aspects of business and corporate governance achieve tangible benefits with impact on their financial performance. Additionally, the study shows that during the last year recognition of the Respect Index has grown significantly among the professional participants of the capital market. Moreover, a growing number of investors understand the relationship between adoption of a corporate responsibility strategy and reduction of business risk. In 2012, 65% of investors recognised such a relationship and appreciated the role of annual reports in which companies share information on their corporate responsibility achievements. KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. responds to such expectations of the market.

 

Participation in the Respect Index triggers an obligation to effectively counteract corruption and fraud, therefore the Company rigorously supervises conformance with the ethical principles, good practices, applicable laws and internal regulations. Regular audits are conducted in the Company in order to prevent fraud . In 2012, no instances of corruption were detected in the Company (SO4).
