Sustainable Development Strategy of Eurocash Group 2020+
We know that – especially in times of crisis - the huge responsibility of fuelling the country’s economic power and supporting society rests on the shoulders of local Entrepreneurs. It fills me with pride that for the past 26 years, Eurocash Group has supported Polish entrepreneurship. Giving Entrepreneurs the power to act is our priority in implementing Eurocash Group’s Sustainable Development Strategy 2020+
Member of Eurocash Group’s Management Board,
responsible for managing sustainable development
A sustainable and responsible approach to our daily business activity determines the impact we make on our economic, social and natural surroundings. We are Poland’s seventh-largest employer with 21,277 employees. We work with over 91,500 Customers, supporting them in their entrepreneurship growth and reaching millions of Poles, both through our Customers and directly, when they purchase goods from our distribution offer. As a FMCG and leading logistics operator we also have significant influence on the natural environment around us.
Our approach to sustainable development is outlined in the Sustainable Development Strategy of Eurocash Group 2020+ that we adopted in 2019. Its four pillars relate to our most important stakeholders, namely our employees, Entrepreneurs and Poles who stock up in our stores. Furthermore, we care for the local environment and work to reduce food waste.
The Sustainable Development Strategy is viable thanks to a responsible approach to management processes. Its implementation is overseen by Eurocash Group’s Management Board Member and managers who lead the efforts on each of the strategy pillars. Since 2018, the Marketing Manager of the Group has been appointed the person in charge for the area of sustainable development. In 2019, Eurocash Group appointed a CSR manager responsible for the strategy’s execution.
