The aim of the partnerships is to contribute to the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals which are in line with our strategy.

Partnership for the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

In June 2017, our organization joined the Partnership for the Implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) between the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Technology and the representatives of the business community. The Partnership is intended to generate synergies of actions undertaken in Poland in order to implement the recommendations of Agenda 2030 and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals which form part of it.

Together for the Environment Partnership

Together for the Environment is an initiative supporting the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals established by UNEP/GRID. The partnership is a response to the need identified in Poland to build a supportive climate and ensure best possible conditions for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, in particular the ones which refer to the environment. The aim of the partnership is to pursue the path of sustainable development through joint collaboration of many parties from different sectors and industries united by the principle of responsibility for the natural environment. The members of the partnership, including businesses, business associations, business chambers, scientific institutions, public administration bodies, NGOs and individuals, exchange ideas, share experience and good practice and engage in collaboration to implement the SDGs.

Partnership with the Responsible Business Forum

For many years we have been a strategic partner of the Responsible Business Forum which is an originator and partner of projects of fundamental importance for CSR in Poland and an active promoter of sustainable development. In 2019 Michał Gajewski, CEO of Santander Bank Polska, was appointed to the Management Board of the Responsible Business Forum.

Diversity Charter

Santander Bank Polska has signed the Diversity Charter – an international initiative implemented under the auspices of the European Commission in 19 members states of the European Union and in Poland coordinated by the Responsible Business Forum. Organizations being the Charter signatories make a number of commitments, such as no discrimination, promotion of diversity programs and engagement of their employees and business partners.
