- For over 100 years, PKO Bank Polski has been operating in accordance with the principles of responsibility for the environment in which it operates. We have always adapted our commitment to the current needs of Polish society. The situation was the same at the beginning of the 20th century, when we supported the implementation of the most important infrastructure projects for Poland, as well as in the following decades, or recently, when we became involved in the fight against the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since 2019, we have been taking steps with increasing determination to address one of the greatest contemporary challenges - climate change counteracting. Today we have taken the next step on this path and made specific, measurable commitments in the ESG area. As before, we want to generate the best results for our shareholders, but additionally - look for opportunities to grow in a more sustainable way at the same time. We will also consider ESG issues more broadly in our next strategy.
- said Jan Emeryk Rościszewski, Vice President of the Management Board of PKO Bank Polski, managing the work of the Management Board
