The second edition of Nowy Styl Supplier Sustainability Award has just come to an end!

The winners of Nowy Styl Supplier Sustainability Award 2023 were announced on August 17th. Meet this year’s honorees for outstanding sustainability achievements.

The purposes of SSA Contest is to engage suppliers, develop and promote CSR initiatives related to environmental contribution and social actions. In 2021 Contest edition we focused on environmental and social aspects in general, nevertheless, facing coming ESG challenges, this year we raised the bar higher. We are proud of the way our suppliers act, develop and promote sustainable development!
These days, working with a Customer on a Business Project focuses not only on the selection of high-quality products and services. Before the decision is made, the Customer checks us as a supplier along with our supply chain for doing business in a spirit of a sustainable development. We strive to ensure that Nowy Styl activities and cooperation with suppliers in this area result in the best solutions for Customers while respecting and promoting environment and people. We thank our Suppliers for their ambitious sustainable goals, motivation in their implementation, promotion and application of good CSR practices in their daily business activities. We share this knowledge in order to better implement and improve CSR strategies.

The Award recognizes companies that have contributed significantly to achieving environmental goals of EU Taxonomy, and those Partners who demonstrate real support to vulnerable groups – women, people with disabilities, engage in promoting diversity, integration and equality in their own Organizations. Also, facing the Ukraine war crisis, we asked our suppliers how they engaged in helping people in need.
We are aware of the impact that individual links in the supply chain have on our products. We recognize the effort of the companies cooperating with us to minimize not only business but also non-financial risk – and we want to reward it. The Contest for suppliers, which is an incentive to improve activities and take new ones related to further reducing negative environmental impact and strengthening the impact in local communities, is particularly close to us. We believe that only joint actions will fulfill obligations regarding corporate social responsibility towards the environment and future generations.
