Let’s Clean the Beskids 2016! We already had two excursions!

Fostering environmental attitudes and behaviour is an important element of the Company’s CSR policy.

The Capital Group of Grupa Kęty S.A. got involved in the local initiative called “Let’s Clean the Beskids 2016” of the Polish Tatra Society (the branch in Bielsko-Biała)

As part of the campaign, we planned three excursions combined with the cleaning of mountain trails and team-building activities. On 23 April, we cleaned Silesian Beskids in the area of Szyndzielnia and Klimczok mountains.

On Saturday, 21 May, there was another excursion combined with the cleaning of mountain trails. This time, “LET’S CLEAN THE BESKIDS 2016” campaign came to Żywiec Beskids, specifically the area of Babia Góra mountain. The determination and commitment of the participants (more than 200 people) resulted in measurable effects — over 5,200 litres of rubbish were collected. A symbolic tree planting initiative also took place and the event ended with a joint bonfire! Grupa Kęty S.A. is the Partner of the campaign, and children supported by ‘Grupa Kęty for the Children of Podbeskidzie Region’ Foundation and the Group’s employees actively participated in the cleaning.

The last campaign is planned in the Little Beskids in the area of Chrobacza Łąka mountain. We’ll be there too!
