Environmental and Climate Policies

The engagement in following the principles of sustainable development and the rules of caring for the environment has been reflected in the assumptions of the Environmental Policy, the Climate Policy, and the Code of Ethics of the Capital Group. Detailed requirements regarding conduct and allocation of responsibility have been regulated by the procedures implemented within the ISO 14001 system.

Environmental issues in our strategy

At the end of 2020 we published the Strategy for the years 2021–2025, in which, for the first time ever, the Company parametrised and presented its commitment in the environmental and climate in the form of Sustainable Development Goals. At the same time, there was implemented the Climate Policy of the Capital Group of Grupa Kęty S.A. It is based on the common standards of conduct among the Group companies with regard to striving for climate neutrality in the perspective of 2050.

Within the Climate Policy, the companies have declared their full responsibility for the impact of their operations on the climate changes, and committed to carry out actions aimed at mitigating the impact, focusing on the major aspects, i.e.:

Greenhouse gas emissions limitation

Development of recycling processes and effective waste management in all areas of the organisation’s operation

Innovativeness and development of products, services and processes compliant with the climate change challenges

Therefore, we have assumed to perform of specific and measurable goals until the year 2025:

Why we do it?

The goals serve the implementation of solutions neutral to the environment, limitation of the carbon footprint of the products, and facilitation of their re-use, as well as increase of recycled materials in the manufacturing processes. Thanks to that, the goals comply with the vision of climate-neutral future or the concept of circular economy, in which products should remain in turnover as long as possible.
