Carrefour Poland was awarded in the contest “Eco-Inspiration 2017” in the category dedicated to companies. An award ceremony has been organized for the contest’s gala at Warsaw Stock Exchange, during which Robert Noceń, General Secretary of Carrefour Poland, received the prize in the name of the company.

Carrefour conducts a large range of initiatives in the field of environmental protection, which have been distinguished in the contest Eco-Inspiration. Among those initiatives, we can first of all mention the program STOP Waste, the actions developed in the field of biodiversity protection and deforestation prevention as well as the project “Bee Hotels”. It is worth adding that Carrefour Poland strives to compose properly its offer and control the quality of each product under Carrefour own brand at each stage of the supply chain. The retail chain also promotes sustainable methods of production. One example is the product assortment “Jakość z Natury”, which has been developed in cooperation with polish farmers, breeders and producers who are following sustainable agriculture methods. Those products are available as part of the “Healthy assortment” which is constantly being extended.

Eco-Inspiration is one of the most prestigious ecological awards in Poland and one of the biggest events on the market for the promotion of sustainable development. It is organized by the editorial board of the portal Ekorynek.com, as part of the national program “Responsible with Nature”- with its 5th edition being held this year. The program proposes a socio-educative approach to consumption. The title “Eco- Inspiration” is given to innovative and ecological brands and products as well as to companies, institutions and organizations involved in the respect of the natural environment and engaged in sustainable development.
