About the company

ESG

Environment

ORLEN Group’s approach towards the environment is founded on the rules of corporate social responsibility and care for the nature. Sustainable development drives our actions, while the results of all of our activities affecting natural environment are reported to the respective entities. 

Our environmental goals have been addressed in Integrated Management System Policy in PKN ORLEN. Our operations are powered with conventional and renewable resources. All business activities are conducted responsibly, having regard to the ongoing consequences and future impact on climate issues. 

The existing standards and management systems that are aimed to reduce direct impact on the environment have evolved towards the strategies that pursue reduction of corporate impact on climate change and adjust business models to the impact of those tangible consequences on our assets. Climate change is a vital challenge to PKN ORLEN and the companies within ORLEN Group. Global energy transition, which we witness, brings significant chances of development for Central Europe. As the biggest enterprise in the region, PKN ORLEN strives to take even larger toll on this process.

We find ourselves accountable for the communities we operate in, for this reason we feel obliged to maintain dialogue and support on various fields. We appreciate and endorse national heritage, science and sports. We are honoured, that our actions, benefit national reputation abroad. 

Our employees are provided with decent and fair working conditions.
