Social Reporting in Poland

Title variants
Languages of publication
Reporting is part of the process in which a company verifies and analyses its approach towards the issue of sustainable development. This process is of assistance when systemising the attitude towards the question of social responsibility development and when determining CSR priorities. The article presents the condition of social reporting in Poland. It provides information on which companies write social reports and on what kind of processes social reporting undergoes. On the basis of the information presented in the article, one may say that social reporting among companies operating in Poland is not common. It is the domain of large companies which are affiliated with foreign capital. It needs to be pointed out, however, that every year more and more companies publish social reports and they are increasingly compliant with the commonly accepted standards accepted in this field. However, the reports evaluated in this study lack credibility and, to a lesser degree, completeness.
