The Green Company project strives to improve public awareness of the methods
and importance of recycling electrical appliances, and solves the lack of
places in the Czech Republic where people – company employees can dispose of
their old electrical household appliances. The aim of the Green Company project
is to protect the environment by ensuring the collection and effective
recycling of old electrical appliances. These contain many dangerous substances
such as mercury, lead, cadmium, bromide combustion retarders and others, as

offers companies the opportunity of fulfilling their social responsibility
program. The project was officially launched in early February 2008.

Collection bins are located in 44 buildings of Česká spořitelna across the
