CSR – A FASHION OR REAL COMMITMENT? THE CASE OF POLISH LISTED COMPANIES

Abstract

This article, without claiming to be the ultimate reference, aims at assessing the social commitment of the large and solid financially, listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE), Polish companies, on the eve of the implementation of the EU directive on disclosure of non-financial and diversity information (2014/95/EU). The selected companies seem perfect to form a vanguard of CSR in Poland, but the results of the analysis indicate that despite the existing efforts for CSR standardization and better implementation, the situation in Poland is not so optimistic. The limited attention paid to CSR norms as well as CSR reporting under Polish law means also that foreign companies seeking access to Polish capital market generally will not face serious constraints in terms of regulations regarding sustainable development. The EU directive will certainly change this situation but there is a visible need for continuing education of companies in this field.
