As evidenced in the annual Report of Good Practices prepared by the Responsible Business Forum (FOB) social responsibility of companies is increasingly gaining ground in Poland. Tree practices of Mostostal Warszawa have been included in this the most prestigious review of CSR activities.

Responsible Business in Poland. Good Practices is the overall publication which shows social activities of companies in Poland. It includes examples of practices realised by Polish enterprises from various sectors of the market showing the most comprehensive profile of social responsibility in the country. On 30 March 2017 in the complex of historic tenement houses, Centre of Creativity Targowa, revitalised by Mostostal Warszawa, was held ceremony announcing the results of the report.
15th-anniversary edition of the report presents tree practices of Mostostal Warszawa. Responsible Business Forum appreciated once again research and development activities of the company. For many years now in the company has been operating Research and Development Department which is the first unit of its kind in Poland. Our R&D team sets out a new framework of performance for industrial enterprises by working together with research facilities. Engineers of Mostostal Warszawa are working on the international projects, among others, in the area of implementation of modern solutions in the construction concerning energy efficiency, sustainable construction and innovative construction materials.
The most important achievement of Mostostal Warszawa in the field of innovation is developing the technology of constructing composite bridges, which can contribute to a quality of Polish road infrastructure. In the years 2016-2017 the company constructed two unique bridges in Błażowa and Nowa Wieś on the Podkarpacie. Considering the endurance of the structure throughout the life cycle it turns out that composite crossings are more durable and resistant to damage over time than structures made of steel, for example, and require lower costs of maintenance.
Last practice of Mostostal Warszawa presented in the report were ecological workshops conducted by employees of the company. Educational lessons that took place in schools on the Wolontariat Day allowed pupils better understand issues of sustainable development. Interactive games and friendly theme of a superhero from a comic book balanced with knowledge – that were ideas for an interesting scenario for a classroom lesson. Volunteers used specially prepared materials. These workshops form part of company’s educational mission carried out so far on the academic level (educating students) and research level (cooperation with scientific institutions).
Good practices in the report have been presented according to the ISO 26 000, grouped in seven core subjects as follows: organisational governance, human rights, labour practices, the environment, fair operating practices, consumer issues, community involvement and development. For the first time, the publication shows the relation of each practice with the UN goals of sustainable development.
