GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. has performed a review of its activities pursant to PN-ISO 26000 on management of corporate social responsibility

In accordance with the company’s business strategy up to 2020, sustainable development constitutes comprehensive support of business operations. Accordingly, the Board of Directors has appointed an ISO 26000 project team which, together with an external consultant, reviewed the principles of corporate social responsibility in every key area, including: organizational governance, human rights, labor relations, the environment, fair operating practices, customer relations, community involvement and community development.

A complex diagnostic tool has been created for the purposes of work related to the analysis of social responsibility principles. This tool was used to specify the extent to which the activities have been implemented in each area. The work has resulted in the "Framework concept for implementing recommendations arising from the review of ISO 26000 for GAZ-SYSTEM SA", which contains a set of projects that need to be implemented by the company. The key initiatives concern the areas:
• Strategy and reporting
• Compliance policy
• Customers
• Environmental impact management
• Purchasing and relations with business partners
• Stakeholder involvement

The recommendations prepared under the review of ISO 26000 will be taken into account when updating the business strategy.

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.
