In this year’s edition Solaris was awarded a prize for the best debut. As emphasised by the jury, the prize was awarded “for a report that contains a multitude of well-prepared information, with a clear layout, a concrete set of ESG actions and an interesting description of the company's role in the ‘zero-emission’ future”.

The competition has been running for 15 years. Every year, the best CSR and Sustainability reports are given prizes by the jury. This year, 55 reports were submitted to the competition. The reports are evaluated by a jury of experts in the fields of economics, environmental protection, social affairs and CSR.

“This award for our first Sustainability Report proves that the path adopted by the company is correct, i. e. to implement sustainable development by consistently widening of our zero-emission vehicles range and by supporting towns and cities interested in the green transformation, with a view to bringing about a better future. This is the foundation of our activities, which today has been recognised in the ESG area. We thank you!”, said Javier Calleja, CEO of Solaris Bus & Coach sp. z o.o.
