Strategic support for supply chain during COVID-19
In the circumstances of high uncertainty we are facing today due to COVID-19, we must first ensure the safety of our business and employees. In business things are not achieved in isolation. It is a connected system of vessels in which suppliers and contractors play a key role. According to McKinsey’s report COVID-19: Implications for business, supply chain resilience will be key to long-term business stability. One of the ways in which this can be accomplished is by providing financial support to small and medium-sized suppliers who face financial problems due to COVID-19. We shall identify which individuals and entities in our environment are crucial for our business when we respond to this crisis and begin recovery, and make sure that they survive this difficult time. Taking care of your market environment will help minimize the negative impact of the pandemic on the economy, the labor market and your own organization.
It is our belief that ensuring resilience of the supply chain will be a key activity leading to successful restoration of the national, regional and global economy. This is why we have created the Recovery Fund. Its purpose is to counteract the effects of COVID-19 by enabling entrepreneurs to support key people and entities who have suffered or may suffer pandemics – so that during and after COVID-19 normal business processes can be restored.
Through the Recovery Fund it will be possible to ensure stability of

It is worth considering that the Recovery Fund was created to strategically support resources (including human capital) and the supply chain, because these activities are key to rebuilding the economy – local, national, regional and global in the long run.

The Recovery Fund is a non-profit initiative. Fund administration, according to global standards of Charity Navigator, involves the cost of 10% of the amount donated. However, in the current economic situation, we decided to reduce this cost to 0,1-3%, depending on the amount of funds donated. This amount will allow us to cover the costs associated with administration of the Fund (mainly legal costs and accounting). If the amounts credited on the Fund’s service exceed our costs, the difference will be used to finance the Fund’s core objectives and that will be communicated to you, in such instance. Administrative costs associated with servicing the Fund are a part of the donation subject to art. 4 of the Act of 24th April 2003 on public benefit activities and volunteering.

The fund takes over all administrative activities, such as signing contracts with Beneficiaries as well as handling the transfer and accounting of funds. Thanks to strategic actions, we can combine smaller payments, which will result in greater impact.
