The GOCC cooperation is not just about collection boxes but about long-term partnership that is also a source of pride among Stora Enso employees in Poland. Many have volunteered their time to help organise the box production and GOCC events.
GOCC organises a grand finale concert in Warsaw in January each year, and many smaller concerts are organised by volunteers throughout Poland. Stora Enso employees volunteered to organise one in Ostrołęka this January - together with the community. “Local volunteers of all ages and walks of life offered us their help, along with local musicians,” Agnieszka Stolarow says. “The event was a huge success, and was greatly appreciated by the Ostrołęka community.”
