In spring 2014, Grupa Kęty together with Fundacja Grupa Kęty Dzieciom Podbeskidzia (‘Grupa Kęty to the Children of Podbeskidzie Region’ Foundation) launched ‘Nakrętka na wózek’ (‘A Top to Get a Wheelchair’) programme.
As part of this program, all companies of the Capital Group of Grupa Kęty S.A. and children’s homes cooperating with the Foundation carry out a continuous plastic tops collecting campaign.
Thanks to the joint commitment from the very start of the campaign, over 2 tons of tops have been collected so far. The money from the sale of tops is given to a family, which finances the purchase of a wheelchair with the funds.
“Environmental stewardship is one of the foundations of our social responsibility; therefore, we are very engaged in the creation of environmentally-friendly attitudes,”says Monika Sobczak, Chief CSR Specialist.
“We are trying to educate and foster ‘green’ behaviour; hence, our commitment to the projects such as ‘Let’s Clean the Beskids’ or thematic contests such as ‘Eco-Strong’. ‘A Top to Get a Wheelchair’ programme, apart from the ecological aspect of waste segregation, has an additional beneficial effect. It makes us happy!,” adds M. Sobczak.
