Karel Růžička

Karel Růžička Partner responsible for CSR

„Through the propagation of the responsible business idea by all means available we contribute to the cultivation of the Czech business environment.“

We inspire responsible business practice

  • In all areas of our enterprise we aim at sustainability.
  • Since we have learnt through experience that responsible business is not only beneficial for the community but also for the responsible companies themselves, we try to spread the CSR idea also among other entities on the market.

To be able to spread the CSR idea, we are members of a number of professional organisations:

Business for Society

Byznys pro společnost

We are members of the Business for Society Platform, the largest trade unions focused on spreading the CSR principles and sustainable business in the Czech Republic. It is an association of socially responsible companies that are sensitive to their environs when doing business and whose management involves approaches respecting the needs of the society, the employees, customers and environmentally-friendly aspects.

The Czech Business Council for Sustainable Development

Česká podnikatelská rada pro udržitelné podnikání

We are one of the founding members of the Czech Business Council for Sustainable Development, whose aim is to promote active involvement of the entrepreneurial sector in the sustainable development of Czech society.

American Chamber of Commerce

Americká obchodní komora

As members of the expert CSR Committee of the American Chamber of Commerce we participate in the development of corporate social responsibility in the Czech Republic.

Netherlands-Czech Chamber of Commerce

Nizozemsko-česká obchodní komora

Together with other companies in the Corporate Responsibility Club of the Netherlands-Czech Chamber of Commerce, we endeavour to accentuate the importance of the CSR principles in business undertakings.
