One of the key areas of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy is to support local initiatives of the neighborhood we live in: the South-Pest area and district nine in Budapest and Csongrád County. We encourage BP employees to support community organizations and charities through volunteering and charitable giving. BP encourages employees to spend two days a year volunteering with a charity organization.
During spring in Budapest, more than 100 employees volunteered to clean a part of Haller Park, a public park near our office. With support and guidance from the local authorities we renewed the dog run, painted benches and revamped the rainproof pagoda. Employees also refurbished the playground furniture, planted trees and flowers and painted fences at the Csudafa Óvoda kindergarten in district nine, who BP has a long-standing relationship with.
In autumn 2018, we supported the Wesley János Primary School in Szeged. They requested gardening and garden furniture renovation support. Our team jumped onto the opportunity to help transform the place: planting flowers, removing sprawling ivy or polishing and painting playground items and preparing benchces thus the children can spend their leisure time in a safer and nicer environment.
