The Integrated Annual Report of the LOTOS Group is yet another publication compliant with the highest standards. Every year, we strive to ensure that the prepared publication provides reliable and complete information about our activities to stakeholders. The report on non-financial information is prepared by the Grupa LOTOS on an annual basis, in the form of an integrated report. This report contains information for the period from 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2020.
The Integrated Report of the LOTOS Group for 2020 was prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards in Core version and with the Accounting Act (Article 49b and Article 55 paragraphs 2b–2e). This report differs from those for previous years due to the application of selected GRI indicators in the version from 2018 (previously — version from 2016). Data in selected indicators were reported in entities other than previously, hence the need to recalculate data, including data from previous years. The report also takes into account the Task force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) guidelines on environmental reporting. The TCFD recommendations were developed by a group appointed by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) and are the most widely accepted guidelines, supported by financial institutions, addressed to companies for reporting climate change issues. No adjustments were made in the report with respect to the contents of previous reports. The report has not been subject to external verification.
In order to select the indicators, a materiality analysis was carried out, taking into account the opinions of both external and internal stakeholders. We want the report to form the basis for dialogue with the company’s environment, which is why it takes into account topics that are of particular importance to it. This year, we invited our stakeholders to complete an online survey. The survey indicated topics of particular importance to individual groups, as well as topics that we should take into account in this year’s report. The topics rated the highest by stakeholders are presented in the following graphic, while the other subjects proposed in the survey were included in the contents of the report. Nearly 200 representatives of employees, business partners, analysts, media and scientific centres took part in the survey.
