Solaris has published its latest Sustainability Report, presenting the outcomes of its endeavors pursued in 2022 with a view to ensuring a sustainable future.

In the Report, the Company recapitulates the past year in a cross-sectional manner referring to the development of clean drives, minimization of environmental impact and activities associated with ensuring compliance with best standards of corporate governance and social responsibility – towards own employees and the local community.

Solaris Bus & Coach has published its Sustainability Report for 2022. The document contains a comprehensive and transparent description of the actions taken by the Company in response to challenges posed by modern civilization and the climate crisis. The Report has been broken down into four key sections: “Responsible governance,” “Sustainable product,” “Sustainable production” and “Social responsibility.” It is the third sustainability report prepared by Solaris based on the international GRI Standards, taking into consideration key aspects of the Company’s sustainability-related activities, in cooperation with the company’s key stakeholders.

Agata Stańda, Solaris Bus & Coach Management Board Member for Strategy, Transformation and ESG said:

Solaris’ readiness for the current challenges is being built in cooperation with the CAF Group. In 2022, as part of our joint strategy, we worked to, among other things, reduce the Group’s impact on the social and natural environment, and continued to cooperate to ensure a responsible value chain. We also developed the area of product innovation, which is the basis for building a zero-carbon future. We are convinced that the measures we take have a positive impact on people’s daily lives throughout the life cycle of our buses.

An issue of fundamental significance for the Company and a factor crucial for its international success are product innovations and efforts aimed at the development of clean and energy-efficient drives. The R&D Department’s intense work in the area of hydrogen technologies resulted in an expansion of the Company’s offering with yet another hydrogen vehicle. Moreover, the Report covers extensively the Company’s activities focused on saving resources consumed in the manufacturing process, but also by the vehicles themselves during operation – that is, when their environmental impact is at its peak. In 2022, based on LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) calculations, Solaris obtained Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) labels for its two buses: Solaris Urbino 18 electric and Solaris Urbino 12 hybrid.

Care for the professional development of employees is considered another key factor contributing to the Company’s growth. The Report describes how Solaris supports the people whose day-to-day efforts help the Company achieve its business objectives by continuously improving their professional expertise. In the area of social engagement in 2022, the educational campaign called CityMission by Solaris was focused on educating the youngest generations in environmental awareness and encouraging the use of public transport. The project was targeted at primary school students in grades 1 through 3 and offered participation in a creative contest, educational workshops and an urban game.
