The award for Corporate Social Responsibility was presented for the fifth time on February 18, 2016, at the WORLD CSR Congress in Mumbai.
This year was the first time the World CSR Congress chose companies from Eastern-Central Europe who manage social responsibility as an active part of their business and are worthy of one of the sixteen announced award categories, thus, this is the first year a Hungarian company has received an award. Of the representatives of the 90 participating countries HELL ENERGY Magyarország Kft. became the first Hungarian company to win the Best Corporate Social Responsibility Practise award.
"Such a significant international recognition is truly a great honor for us and it is also confirmation that we are on the right track. We are proud that we bring technological development, continually expanding investments, and jobs to a part of the northern region where unemployment is quite high. Not only do we sell an excellent quality product, but we have also established a stable, continuously growing company, which provides over 500 families with employment. Apart from this, as we are known to be proud of where we are from and so it is important to us that we always support local communities and organizations," said Eszter Anna Tóth PR director for HELL ENERGY Kft.
