Last year, the judging panel of international experts announced Kia Motors Slovakia a National Champion for the second time. Afterwards, the company submitted its video online, giving a powerful insight into the story of their Environmental & Corporate Sustainability (www.businessawardseurope.com). It will now compete against all other country National Champions for the public vote. The company with the most votes will be named ‘National Public Champion’ for Slovakia on 3rd March 2015.
Eek-Hee Lee, President and CEO of Kia Motors Slovakia says: “We are hoping that the public will view our video and vote for us. This year, we again participate in the category Environmental & Corporate Sustainability since we consider our company not only as a car maker, but also a responsible partner of the Zilina region where it is located. We are glad that last year only, our company, with its Foundation Fund with the Pontis Foundation allocated one million euro for projects in the Zilina region. We are happy we could help people who needed it most and also contributed to the enhancement of quality of life in the region.“
Kia Motors Slovakia focused the projects on the environmental protection, education, safety, assistance to low income individuals, disabled citizens and sportsmen in previous year. Last year, the plant also supported building of cycling paths as well as remodeling of three schools in Zilina.
Kia Motors Slovakia joined the European Business Awards competition last year. This first phase of the online voting for all Kia fans is open until 24th February 2015, giving Kia Motors Slovakia 6 weeks to get as many votes as possible. All the videos for this year’s National Champions can be found at the European Business Awards website: www.businessawardseurope.com .
