The LOTOS Group as an active participant of the fuel market and initiator of regional development
We create a platform for cooperation
We are a member of Polish and international trade, business and specialist associations. Our membership of those organizations allows us to create a cooperation platform for energy companies in Poland and in Europe, actively participate in legislative processes in Poland and the European Union, and act towards improving security in the energy sector and promoting best practices in the area of corporate social responsibility.
We also engage in initiatives that bring together companies from Pomerania, the region where we operate and exert a significant environmental impact. We seek to initiate regional development through our involvement with local organizations.
