Our headquarters in the Eiffel Palace are part of Eastern Europe's most environmentally friendly office building. And another aspect of our environmental footprint we have worked to improve is transport: we support the fight against air pollution and the reduction of urban noise. We have begun using electric vehicles for business travel in the city and surroundings. We have two Nissan Leaf cars that are considered to be the world’s first mass-produced, fully electric vehicles. We charge the two vehicles with electric fast chargers in our office building's garage.
|Me launched an internal competition in our office to encourage colleagues to reduce their paper use. Some teams reduced their consumption by 50%, and the winning team managed to improve paper use by 66%. During the competition we supported our colleagues with useful tips and digital solutions.|
Our main aim is to show that it is not enough to talk about corporate responsibility. We must take action. We endeavour to call students’ attention to the importance of social responsibility and provide students engaged in this field with the opportunity to carry out their own social responsibility projects.
A day of volunteering - along with over 22 civil society organisations, approximately 500 people engaged in volunteer work on 12 December 2015. During that day 10 of our experts provided free training to 45 NGO representatives on taxes, legal matters, strategy and marketing communication issues. In addition to this, 60 children received shoe box presents collected and packaged in the office by our colleagues.
PwC again supported the PénzSztár for the 3rd year, as it has from its first year. PénSztár is a competition, that aims to explore and improve high school students’ financial knowledge and culture, and to encourage them to pursue a successful career in business or finance. PwC, as a sponsor, supports the competition with professional materials as well. For more information: http://penzsztar.hu/2015/
We have been organizing activities for the children living at the Esze Tamás Children’s Home since 2008.
We have been auditing Csodalámpa Foundation pro bono for the past eight years. This year they have introduced their runner ambassador promotion. The ambassadors nicknamed "Csodabogarak" take part in two or three races each year to raise funds for the children who are supported by the foundation.
We have made three dreams come true since the beginning in 2015.
In December we bring in the holiday atmosphere by organising a Christmas market. Every year our employees can support various foundations by buying products made by disabled people. The following foundations participated in our Christmas market:
Who were these organisations?
|Our firm also took part in the earth hour movement, as we believe environmental protection to be a vital issue. As a result, we switched off the office building' lights and we also encouraged our staff to join the movement.|
|Several times a year our colleagues undertake to repaint faded trail markers on national hiking routes – this is a great opportunity to move and to do something for the common good. In April we renewed the yellow blazes on the Csillebérc-Szépjuhászné route.|
During “Green Month” in April we organised some events to encourage environmental awareness.
Professor Sándor Kerekes, Doctor of The Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA), one of the most important Hungarian experts and ambassadors of environmental protection and sustainability gave a lecture on sustainable development as the great challenge of the 21st century.
At the Recycling and Conscious Decisions workshop organised by Humusz Szövetség we played some games and hand crafted from “waste”. We also offered some useful green action tips with our colleagues.
