The Foundation owes its existence and inspiration to Sendzimir Tadeusz and Berthe Sendzimir. Tadeusz Sendzimir, a famous polish engineer, before his death he provided the will to create a foundation, whose mission would be to promote the principles of sustainable development in Poland in all possible ways. He thought that the only reasonable way to guarantee an adequate level of life of its countrymen is the integration of political, economic and social principles for the implementation of social justice and sustainable development. In all actions must therefore take into account the protection of natural resources and treasures of the region.

The Sendzimir Foundation since 1998 promotes and supports all local and national initiatives which aim is to improve the quality of life while keeping the environmental balance and adequate use of natural resources.
