NEW ŠKODA FABIA
ŠKODA Motorsport is busy developing a rally
version of the all-new ŠKODA FABIA. A first
prototype of the future ŠKODA FABIA in
Rally2 version has already been tested
on tarmac and gravel roads in the Czech
Republic, France and Spain.
Please note that the
blood-sampling room at
the ŠKODA Polyclinic in
Mladá Boleslav will be
reopened from 13/9/2021.
The operation of the
outpatient clinic will
continue as before, i.e.
every working day from
6:00 to 9:00 am.
According to the Rally2 regulations of the
FIA, the next generation Rally2 version of the
ŠKODA FABIA is again powered by a 1.6
litres turbo petrol engine connected to a fivespeed sequential gearbox and four-wheel
drive with mechanical differentials.
WE ARE REPLACING
At the beginning of July, a ban on single-use packaging for food,
takeaway drinks and other catering products came into force in
the European Union. ŠKODA AUTO has been preparing for this
change for some time and is gradually making efforts to replace
single-use plastics in catering with eco-friendly products. Two
years ago, for example, it already replaced plastic cutlery and drink
stirrers with their wooden variant and plastic plates/bags for
paper ones. The same change followed for pastry bags this year.
Saying goodbye to
a colleague, did your
superior help you in
a difficult situation or do
you simply know someone
who deserves a thanks?
Reusable Plastic Packaging
ŠKODA and Aramark sought new packaging in the field of
bioplastics and reusable recyclable material. Since March 2020,
employees have been testing a Swiss product in the
Administration Centre restaurant, and in MB and Vrchlabí.
After its evaluation and further testing, a box from a Czech
manufacturer was selected instead and deployed in all
restaurants during the summer. This solution took into account
all employee feedback (e.g. the increased dividing wall of the
bowls) and also took into account the carbon footprint. The
REkrabička is made of fully recyclable polypropylene, which is
both mechanically durable and health-safe, and can replace up
to several hundred disposable containers. It also boasts a high
wash life. REkrabička will be offered in single and double
chamber variants and can be purchased for a refundable deposit
of 150 CZK. For example, if you happen to forget it at home,
you can simply pick up a new one for a refundable deposit. The
service fee for the use of the REkrabička is CZK 3.50 and the
amount is now reduced at the time of coronavirus-related
measures to 1 CZK. In addition, you can also take your meals
away in so-called menuboxes made of, for example, sugar cane.
Since June, you can also reusable KeepCups are available from
June. These can also be used in the microwave or dishwasher,
and they keep drinks at the same temperature for 30 minutes
longer than disposable containers. The cups are fully recyclable
and can be used in cafes, restaurants and even for vending
machine drinks. For now, two colour variants are available.
