The article aims to show the level of involvement of Polish enterprises from the construction industry in the implementation of CSR programmes, with particular emphasis on environmental protection tasks. The survey, carried out with the use of a questionnaire technique, covered 177 enterprises, including their division into large, medium, and small ones. The survey was carried out using
CAVI and PAPI techniques with the use of a proprietary questionnaire form. The results of the research indicate that environmental protection is not a priority CSR area for construction enterprises. The activities undertaken in the field of environmental protection are dominated by those which are directly related to the construction activities conducted. For them, activities going beyond that scope, such as supporting initiatives or promoting pro-ecological behaviour, are much less important. There is a visible difference between large enterprises and entities belonging to the two remaining groups. Large enterprises are more inclined to take universal measures which go beyond their construction site. This indicates their important role as potential creators of good practice, setting behaviour patterns throughout the construction sector.
