Governor’s Award for Social Responsibility for HMMC
Through our grant programs, we have long supported the development of the surrounding communities, employee projects and activities, as well as contributing to young talents’ dreams. Thanks to the plant’s diverse CSR activities, we won the prestigious 2022 Regional Governor’s Award for Corporate Social Responsibility on Tuesday, May 9. As we did three years ago, we won in the category involving businesses with more than 250 employees.
In recent years the company has launched a number of other socially responsible projects and entered into new partnerships with organisations in the region. We are a partner of the FC Baník Ostrava Academy, Dolní Vítkovice or Technotrasa and we also cooperate with ČSOP Salamandr on the restoration of mountain meadows in the Beskydy Mountains. “The award is very important for me personally and for our company. It proves that being socially responsible is not just a phrase for us, but something we are constantly improving and moving forward. I am very pleased that not only the region appreciates this, but also our employees, because they themselves help us to be socially responsible,” said Barbora Hermanová, Head of the Public Relations Department of HMMC.
