The 9th edition of the Natural Energy Fund grant competition has been launched

GAZ-SYSTEM announces the 9th edition of the Natural Energy Fund grant competition. According to its terms and conditions, PLN 50,000 will go to each of the following five provinces: Mazowieckie, Podkarpackie, Podlaskie, Śląskie and Zachodniopomorskie to carry out the best pro-environmental projects.

The competition, launched by GAZ-SYSTEM, is organised for the ninth time. Every year it attracts the interest of educational centres, self-government units and non-governmental organisations for whom the natural environment protection is important in their everyday operations. The purpose of the competition is to develop an original way to support or save the natural environment and to activate the local community to act to safeguard and protect the environment. The applications for funding in this year's edition can be submitted by 17 December 2018.

- The Company has been taking care of the environment as its key objective in the context of the gas infrastructure projects and renovations under development. The decision to run another, 9th edition of the Natural Energy Fund, is a result of the operations that have been undertaken so far and a part of the Company's strategy. Until now, the grants provided in the previous editions of the competition have made it possible to accomplish totally 140 pro-environmental projects. These included the development of natural and meteorological laboratories, upcycling workshops and educational and sensory paths - said Mariusz Kozłowski, Deputy Director of the Corporate Communication Office, the Company's Spokesman.

The total funding amounts to PLN 250,000. Fundacja "Za górami, za lasami” (Eng.: the "Over the Hills and Far, Far Away” Foundation) is a social partner and also runs the secretary office for the competition. The entire information about the competition is available on the website: www.gazsystemdlanatury.pl and the profile FB/FunduszNaturalnejEnergii.

 

GAZ-SYSTEM plays a strategic role in the Polish economy. We are responsible for natural gas transmission and operate the most important gas pipelines in Poland. As part of the 2015-2025 investment programme, GAZ-SYSTEM plans to build over 2000 km of new gas pipelines in western, southern and eastern parts of Poland. Further development of the national transmission network, including the construction of new gas pipelines making part of the North-South Gas Corridor, as well as the construction of interconnections with the neighbouring countries, will strengthen Poland’s energy security and make an important contribution to the development of the European transmission system.

The Company is implementing one of the most important infrastructural projects in Poland – the Baltic Pipe project, which consists in the construction of a bidirectional offshore gas pipeline connecting Poland and Denmark and the expansion of the local transmission network.

GAZ-SYSTEM also owns Polskie LNG, the operator of the President Lech Kaczyński's LNG Terminal in Świnoujście.
