Phoenix Sariensis Award for Silbo

Already for the 20th time Waldemar Socha, the Mayor of Żory, presented the Phoenix Sariensis awards. Among the laureates of the legendary "Phoenixes" was also Silbo, awarded for its active participation in environmental protection through the promotion of compostable packaging, which will result in the reduction of plastic consumption and the promotion of Żory city and the Jastrzębsko-Żorska Subzone of the Katowice Special Economic Zone.

Since 1999, Phoenix Sariensis statuettes have been awarded to institutions, organizations, associations, companies and individuals who have rendered particular service to Żory or who stand out in its promotion both in Poland and abroad. The winners are entities that actively support, not only financially, activities in the areas of education, sport, ecology, culture and art, social welfare and health care.

Silbo was awarded for promoting the city of Żory and the Jastrzębsko-Żorska Subzone of the Katowice Special Economic Zone. This is an extremely important distinction due to the fact that our innovative activity is appreciated by customers in Poland and abroad. Conducting the policy of sustainable development, we performed a number of educational actions in schools and kindergartens in Żory and neighbouring cities, which was also appreciated by the jury of the competition.

Today we would like to thank both the authorities of Żory, all employees of our company, as well as our partners, customers and all people who support Silbo's activity.
