Aware of the scale and nature of our impact, we have made a commitment to observe all internationally recognised standards expected to be met by companies which want to excel in actively managing their environmental impact.

Caring for the environment is one of the pillars of our corporate social responsibility strategy.

 

Operations of large industrial plants, especially facilities such as our refinery and the chemical industry in general, leave an environmental footprint. Therefore, it is imperative that we pay as much attention to the impacts our operations have on the environment and local communities, as we do to the economic aspects of our business, and that we approach both these areas in a sustainable manner, without unjustly tipping the scales to maximise the financial gain.

That commitment is expressed in the form of publicly proclaimed support to, and an undertaking to observe the rules defined by, the world’s largest organisation promoting the ideas of corporate social and environmental responsibility – United Nations Global Compact. As a member of the UNGS community, we declare that in our environmental policy we seek to:

  • Support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges,
  • Undertake initiatives designed to promote environmental responsibility,
  • Encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally-friendly technologies.

The areas where the LOTOS Group’s production facilities are located are not protected on account of their natural value or impact on biological balance. Still, the LOTOS Group’s business is managed in a sustainable manner, in line with the best available practice. This approach stems from our environmental policy, which is focused on clean production, understood as a constant process aimed at reducing consumption of materials and utilities, lowering pollutant emissions, efficient waste management, and safe operation of industrial processes in such a way as to prevent failures.

The principles of sustainability and corporate social responsibility also entail the delivery of high quality products, which leave the smallest environmental footprint possible in the location where they are used. We also place considerable emphasis on raising our staff’s environmental awareness via internal communication channels, which involves education of staff on issues related to environmental protection, understood as an individual, corporate, regional and global effort. Acting in cooperation with partners, we take a number of environmental initiatives focused on developing desirable social attitudes towards environmental protection.
