Operations of the LOTOS Group are of strategic importance to the national and Europe-wide energy security. Petroleum products from the refinery in Gdańsk support land, sea and airborne transport, and thus the other branches of Polish economy. We are the second largest fuel company in Poland, contributing to the country’s economy directly and indirectly as an employer, taxpayer, sponsor, donor, and partner for a number of suppliers, institutions and organisations. We are a responsible and reliable partner – we pay all amounts due on time and we fulfil our contractual obligations. We provide support and growth opportunities to small and medium-sized enterprises, which know they make a very good investment by doing business with us. By contracting and placing orders with businesses from the Gdańsk Province, the LOTOS Group contributes appreciably to the well-being of local communities and economic growth of the entire region. We indirectly help increase the wealth of local communities, offering solid and permanent jobs to local workforce (in 2019, 24.1% of the Group’s procurement budget was spent with local companies from Gdańsk and the surrounding area).
