LOTOS Group Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy is based on the pillars described below. Currently we are preparing the new document, which will respond to the challenges included in the business strategy for years 2017-2022.
Back in 2008, the realisation of how relevant social responsibility was to the pursuit of strategic goals prompted the Management Board to adopt the comprehensive LOTOS Group Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy until 2012. In 2011, the document was reviewed through wide-ranging consultations with our stakeholders. Based on the review, focused on the evaluation of previous activities and their context, and on eliciting related expectations, we have updated the strategy. The next document covered the years 2012 - 2015.
