Corporate social responsibility is an element of management and improvement of the organization in Grupa LOTOS.

The Company builds lasting and positive relationships with its stakeholders and thus seeks to effectively integrate its strategy and actions with social and environmental challenges.

We are proud that jointly with the Lotos Group we have a real say about sports development among children and youth. By running the Football Future program with Lotos, ardent students of football from smaller communities have received professional training, which has led to the selection of players to join voivodship teams and the Polish national youth team. Program participants regularly join the best clubs in Poland. Cooperating with the Lotos Group also clearly contributes to enhancing the professionalization of women’s football. The football players of AP Lotos Gdańsk have excellent conditions for development as evidenced by their playing in the Women’s Extra League and the bronze medal in the Poland U-15 Championships.

This past year of 2021 is yet another year in which we were forced to function in a pandemic-rooted reality, which led to the Lotos SA Group participating in the construction of a temporary hospital in Gdańsk. Even though this was totally unrelated to our business, as an organization we handled the execution of this task entrusted to us by the Prime Minister excellently and we helped save the lives of many people. At the same time, the intensity of the work related to the merger process was augmented, and as a consequence this enormous challenge involving the preparation of the organization to demerge an organized part of the business to Lotos Asfalt, which took place in early November of last year started a new chapter in the functioning of the refinery. On top of all of that, there is also the necessity of preparing the company to meet the new challenges stemming from the risks posed by EU climate regulations. There is no doubt that this was a year of very arduous work and all the people involved in these efforts are due great thanks.
