Renewable energy System: Niepolomice, Wieliczka, Skawina and Miechów

Monitoring visit of a residential building with solar collectors

27.01.2010 - 31.03.2017

The project aims to reduce emissions by introducing renewable energy sources in the communes of Niepołomice, Wieliczka, Skawina and Kłaj in Southern Poland. The four communes foresee to install geothermal heat pumps, photovoltaic systems and solar collector installations on public buildings, like schools, health care facilities and student residences, as well as to equip private households located in the area of Natura 2000 sites with solar panels providing energy for heating and hot water.

23.12.2009 - 31.01.2015

Air pollution and emission levels in Southeastern Poland are substantially higher than in Western European countries. The Malopolskie Voivodship owns 20 health care facilities located on its territory. The three public hospitals participating in this project are the largest and due to their medical specialisation the most important ones for the region. The main aim of the project is to modernize the central heating, cooling and ventilation systems of the three hospitals, thus reducing air pollution and emission levels.

Asbestos Removal Szczucin

Workers removing asbestos

16.12.2009 - 31.03.2017

Air quality in the Voivodship Malopolskie is seriously affected by asbestos dust emissions and asbestos fibres in the air. The projects aims to renew the roofs and remove asbestos from private and public buildings in 70 communes located within the voivodship. The project also includes transport and subsequent storage in appropriate landfills. The project thus contributes significantly to the reduction of asbestos related health risks in the region.

Project completed

Waste Management System for the Region around Lubartów

Remediated waste disposal site

15.12.2009 - 31.03.2017

In an effort to reduce environmental pollution, a conglomeration of municipal authorities in Lubartów intends to establish a new waste management system for the subregion’s 81'000 inhabitants. At present, there is no sorting of ordinary and hazardous waste; waste disposal sites are inadequate; and large amounts of waste are illegally disposed of. These shortcomings have a negative impact on the environment and can lead to health problems.

Project completed

Asbestos disposal in the Voivodship Lublin

Renewal of roofs containing asbestos

15.12.2009 - 31.12.2016

In the past, asbestos was greatly appreciated as a building material until it was realised that asbestos dust posed a serious health risk. Switzerland is helping Poland to introduce a system for the monitoring and disposal of asbestos in the Voivodship Lublin. It will also remove rubbish containing asbestos from illegal dumps and will renew the roofs of 32'000 houses.

24.10.2009 - 31.12.2016

The main aim of the project is to improve the public passenger railway transport system between the cities of Malbork and Grudziadz (railway line Torun Wschodni – Malbork), predominantly located in the Pomorskie Voivodship, by purchasing modern rolling stock. This aim will be achieved by procuring four light rail diesel units of the latest technology, which will be operated by a private carrier on the basis of a concession agreement.

24.10.2009 - 28.02.2017

The city of Warsaw is growing at a rapid pace. The need for maintenance, improvement and development of the public transport system in the city and the wider metropolitan area is apparent. This project aims at improving the efficiency, reliability, safety and comfort of passenger transport services on an important commuter railway line linking the city of Grodzisk Mazowiecki to the Warsaw city center.

Project completed

Transport Center in Legionowo

22.10.2009 - 31.03.2017

Legionowo is a fast growing city of more than 50'000 inhabitants, located some 20 km to the north of Poland’s capital Warsaw. Today, different public transport modes (national, regional, local buses, trains) do not exploit their full potential. One of the key reasons is the lack of a proper transportation hub with adequate passenger services. However, the potential of public transport is huge. The aim of the project is therefore to build an integrated rail and bus station (Transport Center Legionowo), fully equipped with an electronic passenger information system, and with Park & Ride Facility.

Project completed

Financial Reporting Technical Assistance Program

02.09.2009 - 31.12.2016

Despite major reforms by the New EU Member States to their legal and regulatory frameworks governing corporate sector accounting and auditing, there is a substantial unfinished institutional development agenda in the field of financial reporting. The Financial Reporting Technical Assistance Program provides support to five national administrations (in Poland as well as in the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Slovenia) which face capacity constraints and challenges in fully implementing, both in law and in practice, the very demanding obligations imposed by the rapidly-evolving acquis communautaire in this field.

Project completed

Enhancement of regional competitiveness through Corporate Social Responsibility measures

01.06.2009 - 28.02.2017

Recent research has shown a strong link between national Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) factors and the level of innovativeness in a country. In Poland the CSR concept is relatively new and has not been incorporated in the enterprises’ development policy yet. The project aims at improving the awareness and know-how in the field of corporate social responsibility and sustainable development. Through pilot projects, support will be given to approximately 90 small and medium-sized enterprises taking concrete measures such as improving social labour standards, fighting corruption, protecting the environment and making greater use of renewable energy sources.

Project completed

National Capital Fund

Information board

01.05.2009 - 31.12.2016

Small and medium enterprises (SME) in Poland face great difficulties in accessing external long-term finance. The National Capital Fund (Polish: Krajowy Fundusz Kapitalowy – ‘KFK’) is a fund-of-funds which provides venture capital for innovative and R&D oriented SME, particularly in four structurally-weak provinces in the southwest of Poland.
