GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. implements the Code of conducts for Suppliers

Guided by attention to the quality of business relationships, promoting good market practices and making a positive impact on the society and environment, GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. has made a decision to develop this Code of Conduct for Suppliers.

The Code of Conduct for Suppliers to Gas Transmission Operator GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. describes GAZ-SYSTEM's minimum requirements to be met by its suppliers in terms of compliance with the values and principles of social responsibility and sustainable development.

This Code aims to:

  • harmonise Supplier standards of conduct,
  • identify good working practices to be met by Suppliers,
  • improve the quality of products and services provided by Suppliers,
  • reduce the likelihood of ethical, social and environmental risks arising from the business activity carried on by Suppliers,
  • implement GAZ-SYSTEM's CSR policies throughout the supply chain.

All Suppliers to GAZ-SYSTEM, including small and medium-sized enterprises are required to comply with the laws, rules and regulations generally applicable in the country in which they operate - irrespective of the provisions of this Code. As a condition of the Supplier's cooperation with GAZ-SYSTEM, the Supplier must conform to the provisions of the Code in their business. This principle applies to both the Supplier's employees and its subcontractors and suppliers involved in the execution of orders for GAZ-SYSTEM.

GAZ-SYSTEM is a strategic company for the Polish economy. It is responsible for the transmission of natural gas, manages the most important gas pipelines in Poland and owns the President Lech Kaczyński LNG Terminal in Świnoujście.

As part of the 2015-2025 investment programme, GAZ-SYSTEM is constructing over 2000 km of new gas pipelines in the western, southern and eastern parts of Poland. Over a dozen new gas pipelines are under construction within the North-South Gas Corridor and the compressor station in Kędzierzyn Koźle, as well as interconnections with Lithuania and Slovakia. Onshore gas pipelines are planned to connect the planned FSRU floating terminal in the Gulf of Gdansk with the national transmission system. The LNG Terminal in Świnoujście is also being extended, as a result of which the regasification capacity of this facility will be increased by more than a half.

The company is also implementing one of the most important infrastructural projects in the country - the Baltic Pipe project which consists in the construction of a two-way offshore gas pipeline connecting Poland and Denmark, expansion of the local transmission network and three gas compressor stations.
