LPP at the top of the Responsible Companies Ranking
For the fourth time, LPP has participated in the Responsible Companies Ranking and once again managed to climb up, taking a place among the leaders. In the general classification, the company from Gdańsk was promoted to the fifth position, and in the ranking of the trade sector it secured a place on the podium.
The Responsible Companies Ranking is a list of the largest companies operating in Poland, assessed through the prism of corporate social responsibility management. Companies are verified in terms of applying the necessary instruments aimed at improving their policies, structures and processes in meeting the challenges of sustainable development.
Since 2018, the ranking has been organised by Kozmiński Business Hub, with the Responsible Business Forum as the subject matter partner. The ranking is formed on the basis of a questionnaire filled in independently by participating companies. This year, there were over seventy of them.
In this year’s 17th Responsible Companies Ranking, LPP took part for the fourth time and recorded another upward advancement in its position. In the overall ranking, the Gdańsk-based company was placed fifth, gaining 85% of the total score, which includes the analysis of individual ESG aspects. LPP gained the most points, 20, which is as many as the winner of the ranking, for its S-scope activities related to corporate social responsibility.
– For many years, one of the most important aspects of LPP’s activity has been striving for environmental and social sustainability. Consistent implementation of the targets formulated as part of our sustainable development strategy means reducing the negative impact on the environment and caring for people. One of the overriding principles of LPP is responsible and ethical business, i.e. striving to ensure that our employees, business partners and contractors act in accordance with the company’s values. We are aware that the scale of the challenge is still considerable, which is why we are actively involved in successive projects facilitating sustainable business – emphasizes Sławomir Ronkowski, internal communications and CSR director at LPP.
In addition to the general classification, the organisers also publish sectoral rankings. In the trade category, LPP was on the podium for the first time, in a high second place.
In the previous editions of the ROF, the Gdańsk-based company took 10th, 12th and 8th place, respectively.
