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 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.
