The CCC Group was the first Polish company to become a global partner of UNICEF.
In 2020, the CCC Group continued cooperation with UNICEF, the main goal of which was to save the lives of children in the world and support education in developing countries. CCC is the first Polish company to be a global partner of UNICEF.
The employees of the CCC Group willingly initiate and actively participate in volunteer actions, including the Grant Programme, which has been implemented since 2018.
The main objective of implementing volunteering in the CCC Group is to integrate employees around common values and engage as many employees as possible. In this way, CCC volunteers can serve to support local communities and improve their skills.
Projects implemented under the grant programme:
Purchase and installation of a red metal heart-shaped container for collecting around 160 kg of plastic bottle caps. It was mounted on a concrete base in the town of Chojnów in a public spot easily accessible to residents. The project aims to raise the public awareness of the importance of plastic recycling and
collecting plastic caps to help the disabled. Plastic bottle caps can be exchanged for rehabilitation equipment for people with disabilities.
