Local partners are important.
By using their services the ORLEN Group contributes to the development of the market and business in its close neighbourhood. Such suppliers know the local market and are often well aware of the needs and expectations of the ORLEN Group companies. Their close proximity also reduces costs, e.g. of transport and accommodation. In 2021, goods and services sourced from Płock-based companies accounted for some 9.7%1 of PKN ORLEN’s spending. By cooperating with suppliers from its close neighbourhood the Company supports growth of the local market and implements the objectives of its CSR strategy within the supply chain.
At key foreign companies of the ORLEN Group: Unipetrol (Litvínov) and ORLEN Lietuva (Mažeikiai), spending on services provided by local suppliers was 2.84% and 0.66%, respectively, of their total expenditure in 2021.
