Activities for the Kamionka Valley nature reserve

Polenergia Group, being a leader in the green energy transition, is actively involved in sustainable development. Our ambition is to continuously reduce the negative impact on the environment, primarily by reducing CO2 emissions while increasing biodiversity, not only on our investment sites.

We are implementing the Biodiversity Policy and, with our proprietary Energy 2051 Standard, we were the first company in Poland to launch a product that already allows our customers to purchase clean, renewable, green and zero-emission energy in line with the guidelines of the European Green Deal, which will not be in force until 2050. The Energy 2051 standard guarantees climate-neutral products that offer full coverage of our customers’ needs by zero-emission energy generated from renewable sources.

An example of the implementation of Polenergia Group’s latest biodiversity measures is its active participation in the Re:Generation programme coordinated by UNEP/GRID and carried out in the Kamionka Valley Nature Park involving the elimination of invasive species and the removal of waste from biologically valuable areas.

The Kamionka Valley Landscape Park in the Międzychód-Sieraków Lake District was established to protect the unique ecosystems associated with the Kamionka Valley and its characteristic plant species. First of all, these are fertile beech forests and wet riparian forests. The Park also contains unique plant communities associated with springs on the slopes of the valley. These areas are the habitat of many plant species such as lily of the valley goldenseal (lilium martagon), wolfsbane (daphne mezereum), and red grenadier (cephalanthera rubra). Most of the most valuable natural areas directly adjacent to the Kamionka River within the Park are protected as a Natura 2000 site.

The Kamionka River, flowing through a post-glacial trough, is distinguished by its swift, almost mountainous current and cool waters, and is also the habitat of the strictly protected noble crayfish.

Thanks to the involvement of the Polenergia Group and UNEP/GRID, the following objectives were achieved from July to November 2023:

  • restoration of habitats and plant communities by eliminating the invasive species robinia acacia from an area of approximately 0.3 ha, activities contributed to restoring the natural character of the forest,
  • maintenance of proper floristic composition and ecological processes through mowing and bush-raking of a semi-natural meadow ecosystem in order to maintain ecological integrity on a total area of approx. 0.3 ha,
  • reduction of anthropopressure: the elimination of a wild rubbish dump contributed to the reduction of the negative human impact on the environment of the reserve. Nearly 6 tonnes of construction and municipal waste were collected from about 200 m2 of the reserve. The waste was sent for disposal to the waste treatment plant in Mnich.

The above activities contributed to restoring the natural character of the reserve, preserving the ecological integrity of the area and reducing the negative human impact on the reserve’s environment. Polenergia Group continues its efforts to protect biodiversity, in line with its long-term sustainable development goals.
