Being part of these organisations and associations, PKN ORLEN has access to knowledge and information about draft regulations for the fuel and power sectors in Poland and Europe, can easily learn about technical solutions and research findings, and has an opportunity to share its knowledge and gain new experience. Through its active participation in these organisations, in particular associations of employers or organisations promoting CSR ideas, PKN ORLEN builds stable relations with its environment.

Organisations and associations of strategic relevance to the ORLEN Group are those which bring together and represent the entire refining, petrochemical and energy industry in Poland and Europe. They represent the industry before public administration and international bodies.
