Corporate Social Responsibility a Core Priority for NWR


AMSTERDAM (14 July 2010) – New World Resources N.V. (“NWR”), Central Europe’s leading hard coal and coke producer, announces a new approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR).

Starting from this year, NWR is setting specific and measurable objectives in the field of CSR. These include a plan to halve the Company’s injury rate in mining operations within the next five years, a series of measures aimed at lowering water and electric power consumption rates, and increased efficacy in waste management.

Detailed information on NWR's CSR activities can be accessed through the newly expanded CSR section of the Company’s corporate website, which includes three sub-sections – employee care, care for the environment and the region, and local community development.

“Sustainable development has been a key priority for NWR Group in all its business endeavours. Our investments in new, more environmentally friendly technologies, occupational safety and environmental protection are second to none in the Czech mining industry. We are also committed to maintaining good relationships with our customers, suppliers and employees, and the highest level of transparency in our communications with the public,” said Marek Jelinek, Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer of NWR.
