CSR strategy implementation


PKN ORLEN is currently implementing its CSR Strategy for 2015–2017, which states that 'value growth should be aligned with the interests of external stakeholders and rely on the sustainable and responsible use of resources'. In practice, this translates into incorporating corporate social responsibility principles in to the process of planning business activities.

By defining measurable CSR objectives, we are able to analyse and assess the outcomes of these activities for the Company and its stakeholders. Based on the ‘Core Values and Standards of Conduct’ of PKN ORLEN, the Strategy seeks to motivate employees to look for new ideas and innovative solutions. While supporting business, it builds a sense of shared responsibility for implementing CSR objectives within the organisation and promotes the idea of responsibility and stakeholder engagement. The Strategy is being implemented across three areas:

The implementation of the CSR Strategy is proceeding as planned. At PKN ORLEN, 16 coordinators are overseeing 55 projects outlined in the Strategy, and ORLEN Group companies have announced 488 CSR activities which are to be carried out. The PKN ORLEN Management Board and the Supervisory Board’s Corporate Social Responsibility Committee periodically review the progress of the Strategy. Key elements for the Strategy’s success are the full implementation of the adopted initiatives, educating and inspiring employees, and fostering a sense of responsibility for the impact the Company’s activities and decisions have on the environment.

The CSR Strategy and the projects implemented within its framework are a logical consequence and continuation of the activities undertaken by the ORLEN Group in pursuit of its social goals.
