The Electing General Assembly of the Business Council for Sustainable Development in Hungary (BCSDH) has elected a Board for another three-year term. During the six-year presidency of Attila Chikán Jr., 50 new companies joined the organization, which now brings together 115 companies producing 30% of Hungary's GDP and has become a benchmark in the field of sustainability.
The re-elected President will be supported by a four-member board, whose re-elected members are Zsolt Jamniczky, Vice-president of E.ON Hungária, Dr. Ágnes Fábián, Managing Director of Henkel Hungary, Zoltán Gazsi, Managing Director of Eisberg Hungary, and Gréta Nagy, Managing Director of Dandelion Ltd. The management of BCSDH will remain in the hands of Irén Márta.
The re-elected Members of the Supervisory Board are Orsolya Pallaghy, Dr. Orsolya Fazekas, and János Kocsányi, CEO of Graphisoft Park SE. The mandate of the President, the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board is for three years.
“I believe that the organization is on the right path and our business is becoming more effective each and every year,” Attila Chikán Jr. evaluated the last three years. “The awareness and recognition of the organization both to governmental stakeholders and to a wider audience has grown significantly in recent years due to our professional activities and their successful communication” he added.
Nothing proves the success of BCSDH's efforts to introduce more and more companies to the essence and content of sustainable development than the fact that the association now has 115 members. In recent years, the 340 professional events, 220 active corporate leaders, 250 talented young people in the ‘Future Leaders’ program, more than 280 civil, scientific and corporate experts involved in the Action 2020 Hungary Program, and 140 business practices presented so far that provide real answers to sustainability challenges demonstrate BCSDH’s commitment to sustainability.
Last year, the Circular Economy Platform, which was set up at the initiative of BCSDH, the Dutch Embassy and the Ministry of Innovation and Technology, already had 94 members. The initiative aims to foster the circular transition through collaboration and knowledge sharing.
Further, for the sixth time this year, the ‘For a Sustainable Future Award’, launched in 2017, recognizes outstanding corporate, managerial and personal achievements in the field of sustainability, complemented by the Social Responsibility category launched in response to the pandemic.
One of the greatest achievements of recent years has been the establishment of the ‘Net Zero Advisory Board’, established in January 2021, which brings together key players committed to cross-sectoral regulatory, scientific and business sustainability. The primary goal of this cooperation is to facilitate and accelerate the process by which the Hungarian economy can become carbon neutral by 2050.
Attila Chikán Jr. highlighted as the most important tasks by saying that “as for the future, we want to continue and develop all these activities with the usual determination in the coming years. We have a number of tasks ahead of us and we need to continue developing the action and programs that are planned by 2030.”
Speaking about his professional program, he stressed that “it’s time to turn words and commitments into action. We must strive to further strengthen the leadership of the BCSDH as the voice of a responsible and active business community. We will continue to support our member companies in achieving their scientifically based, ambitious sustainability goals. Working with them, our shared goal is to deliver measurable results by the end of 2030 through our recently launched ‘Time to Transform 2030 program’.”
