A member of our platform, Vodafone, wins the Czech National Award for Social Responsibility
Since 2009, Czech National Award for Social Responsibility recognized competing companies that have long been engaged in social responsibility. This year, among many other companies and organizations, Vodafone Česká republika a. s. won the overall victory in the competition. The award was presented on 26 November 2013 at the Prague Castle, by the Minister of Industry and Trade.
Vodafone was valued primarily for the project evaluation on its Eco-class mobile phones supporting disabled entrepreneurs and employers, products for seniors with Senior Inspect monitoring system, active involvement of employees in volunteering activities and many other actions. In long term, these programs enabled both Vodafone customers and employees to be involved in socially responsible activities.
CSR evaluation model of the National Award was inspired by the applicable international standards and those specific to Czech organizations, for both commercial and non-profit sectors. Thus the winner of the National Award for Social Responsibility can be recognized both domestically and across Europe. Among other things, the participating companies want to present that they focus not only on immediate profit maximizations, but also its achievement in the long run.
