Corporate Social Responsibility


Sponsoring in KGHM Polska Miedź S.A.

The Strategy of KGHM in terms of sponsoring is closely related to the activities undertaken with respect to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and assumes that most of the funds will be used to achieve planned goals aimed at promoting the region and supporting valuable initiatives as well as cultural, scientific and sporting events, thanks to which Lower Silesia is establishing its position on the maps of Poland and Europe.

KGHM participates in the organisation, and serves as patron, of important cultural events, which – based on local traditions and creative potential – distinguish the Copper Belt in the calendar of events on a country-wide scale. In terms of science, KGHM cooperates with institutions of higher learning by sponsoring conferences and discussion panels, which serve as a bridge for the exchange of knowledge and experience between industry and the academic environment. The Company treats sport as an important area of social life, and therefore it supports various sporting disciplines – both professional and amateur sport.

Total spending on culture, science and sport in 2011 amounted to PLN 28.5 million.
