In response to the needs of the environment and the people living in the areas of our mining activities, we have adopted a set of principles to help us deliver assistance to those areas and people that need it most, in line with JSW’s strategy and mission statement.

JSW S.A.’s commitment to the region involves, above all, working to keep the existing jobs and to create new ones. This means undertaking local and regional initiatives aimed at stimulating economic activity and encouraging the establishment of new businesses and the diversification of the region’s economic structure. In addition, our partnership with local government institutions results in joined initiatives based on mutual support.

JSW is the largest employer in the region. The Company and the companies closely related to it play an important role in ensuring welfare stability of a large part of the region’s population.

We want our activity, experience and leading position in coking coal production to contribute to the development of the towns, cities and regions where our company operates, particularly the towns of Jastrzębie-Zdrój, Pawłowice, Ornontowice, and Suszec. We are committed to supporting interesting, innovative and effective solutions in areas such as education, health, ecology, culture and sport, and to providing assistance to those people living in the region who need our assistance the most.

herefore, JSW S.A.’s regional policy involves, above all, undertaking initiatives aimed at:

  • keeping the existing jobs,
  • supporting pro-community activity through the Miners’ Families Foundation or through support to health care institutions (including Provincial Specialist Hospital No. 2 in Jastrzębie Zdrój, the Centre for Burn Treatment in Siemianowice Śląskie, the Provincial Trauma Surgery Hospital in Piekary Śląskie, the Silesian Centre for Heart Disease in Zabrze, and the Independent Public Research Hospital No. 5 in Katowice);
  • supporting secondary schools and higher-education institutions, thus building closer relationships and a bridge between industry and the academic community. 

Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa S.A. is a co-founder and member of the Founders’ Board of the Mining Families Charity Foundation in Katowice. Since 1997, it has been bringing help to the families of miners who died in work accidents, to disabled miners, and to other miners’ families in a difficult situation for various reasons, especially to those suffering from poverty or in need of immediate help.

The objectives of the Mining Families Charity Foundation also include:

  • occupational and social integration and reintegration of people threatened with social exclusion,
  • health care and health promotion,
  • promotion of employment and occupational activation of unemployed persons and persons threatened with dismissal,
  • promotion of children’s and youth’s recreation,
  • promotion of culture and art, especially artistic achievements,
  • promotion of activities against addictions and social pathology.

Jastrzębska Spółka Weglowa provides support to the Foundation by annual donations. The Company employees also donate monthly certain declared sums, which are deducted from their remuneration.
