The LOTOS Group is the second largest fuel producer in Poland, which ranks it among the largest companies operating in Poland. At the same time, LOTOS holds a leading position in many other domestic markets, including oils, bitumens and rail freight. In addition to the production and processing of crude oil and natural gas, the Group’s business includes the sale of high-quality petroleum products and the provision of specialized logistics and maintenance services.

The LOTOS Group is aware of its impact on its surroundings and the environment, therefore as a socially responsible company it applies ethical principles in its operations and follows international standards, such as ISO 26000, in the area of organizational governance, human rights, labor practices, environment, fair operating practices, consumer issues, social engagement and local community development. The Company supports the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and adheres to the UN Global Compact Principles.

LOTOS Group companies are strongly involved in activities for the environment.

They are a regular participant and observer in the functioning of local communities, often integrating business, local governments and higher education. This brings long-term benefits to all stakeholders. At the same time, the LOTOS Group strives to solve social and environmental problems in a sustainable manner, e.g. through continuous investments aimed at improving energy efficiency.

Grupa LOTOS realizes how important for the climate and the environment is to transform the operating model to a greener one. One of the elements of this transformation is the 12 charging stations for electric vehicles located along A1 and A2 motorways between Warsaw and Gdańsk. They form the so-called Blue Route.

The next element will be the production of purified hydrogen. Then LOTOS will become the first producer of this fuel in Poland and will build two stations offering this fuel. At the end of 2018, the Company was awarded EU funding for the Pure H2 project, i.e. a hydrogen purification and distribution plant.

Also LOTOS Lab and LOTOS Kolej are continuing environmentally conscious modernization.

Grupa LOTOS makes every effort to ensure safety at every stage of the value chain. This applies to both its current operations and the products it offers. LOTOS Lab meticulously examines the semi-finished products, finished products, components and additives used in the production of fuels, oils and bitumens, as well as the water used in the production of energy media and wastewater.
