New World Resources Plc (‘NWR’) is proud to announce that its hard coal subsidiary OKD, a. s. (‘OKD’ or ‘the Company’) has been recognised in the prestigious TOP Responsible Company Awards, which ranks companies according to their approach towards corporate responsibility and sustainable operations. OKD won the Company and City category thanks to “Suburbs are Alive” project. OKD was also runner-up in both the list of biggest corporate donors and in the main category, which rates the overall approach of companies towards the environment.

"I am very glad that the jury of TOP Responsible Company recognised our programme Suburbs are Alive, and those individuals and non-profit organisations that are not indifferent to their surroundings and that participate in life-enhancing activities for people. All deserve our appreciation and respect," said Petra Mašínová, NWR Head of Corporate Communications and Sustainability and Chairman of the Board of the OKD Foundation.

The jury awarded first place to OKD because of the Company's unusual approach to enhancing life in the suburbs. The aim of the programme is to support the lives of those people who live on suburban housing estates, do not rely only on the authorities and who actively work to improve their community. The programme registered in total 50 projects, five of which took the top five places. For example, two projects from Orlová were selected, one focusing on the restoration of a dilapidated neighbourhood open air cinema, and the second on reconstructing the disused garden of a former nursery into a leisure area for all generations.
