GAZ–SYSTEM S.A. wants to be a leader among European gas transmission operators that are growing and flourishing in compliance with the principles of sustainable development. For this purpose, in July 2011, a new business strategy was adopted by the Company until 2020 , an integral pillar of which is management from the perspective of sustainable development.

A cohesive document was created that defines the mission and vision, the goal and the concept of the Company as well as the position that GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. intends to achieve on the European market by 2020.

In its operational activity, the Company is guided by the prudence principle which means that each project is preceded by the process of identification and analysis of potential factors that could threaten the successful completion of a venture. This is why GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. implemented the GazStep project management system, which includes course of action principles in each of the ten aspects of project management:
