We are basing our development on good, long-term and trust-based relations with customers, utilising all of our strong suites – raw material quality, strategic location at the heart of the European metallurgical industry and access to transport infrastructure, mainly rail.
We operate on a competitive market alongside global players. We outperform them with our flexibility, the ability to adapt product parameters to customer needs and reliability, which has been verified over our long history.
Believing in the perspectives and future of coal, we are creating conditions for innovating in the production and use of this resource. We are using our own resources, i.e. our employees’ knowledge, and we are cooperating with external entities – mainly scientific centres and mining-related companies.
Our systemic approach to R&D is manifested through the formation of JSW Innowacje and our involvement in promising development directions such as acquisition of hydrogen for coke oven gas.
Harmful factors and threats to the health and life of our employees are an inherent part of mining. We prioritise our employees’ safety over production volumes or economic results.
Thanks to systemic solutions for managing occupational health and safety, we are seeing success in reducing the number of accidents and eliminating mining-related diseases. This is possible due to education, health prevention, extensive training system as well as investments and innovations focused on production automation.
December 2018 marked the first full year in which JSW Group’s Code of Ethics was in place. This is a signpost on the road towards building a uniform organisational culture that effectively regulates issues such as respecting company assets, third-party property, mutual respect and eliminating any instances of discrimination, harassment and violations of employee rights.
One of the first steps implementing the Code was to streamline human resource management structures and implement transparent recruitment rules.
We are aware of the fact that the natural resources we use are depletable and non-renewable. We must respect them and use them rationally, while eliminating imperfections in management and developing and implementing new technological solutions.
The innovations that the Group is implementing focus on the acquisition of coal from thin deposits, capture and use of methane resources (e.g. to produce electricity) and use of coke oven gas to produce hydrogen.
We apply the highest standards and best practices in transparency and corporate governance. We are implementing solutions related to ethics management and responsibility within supply chain management.
This enhances our credibility amongst business partners and investors. As a WSE-listed company, we are introducing the highest standards in reporting, including financial and non-financial reporting.
Our aim is to equally prioritise the maximisation of economic efficiency in using natural resources and reduction in the negative impact of extractive and coking activities on the environment and local communities.
We are improving the mining damage rectification system, pursuing ambitious projects in post-mining land rehabilitation and development, protecting surface waters and implementing innovations reducing emissions through the commercial use of methane and coke oven gas.
