September 10, 2020 |

In Poland, ​PKN ORLEN is the first oil company in Central Europe to declare aspiration to achieve emission neutrality by 2050. In order to reach this goal, by 2030 the company will reduce CO2 emissions from its current refining and petrochemical assets by 20% and emissions from power generation by 33% CO2/MWh. The emission neutrality strategy announced by PKN ORLEN is based on four pillars: energy efficiency in production, zero- and low-emission power generation, alternative fuels and green financing.

PKN ORLEN also intends to strengthen its position as a regional leader in biofuels by implementing five significant investment projects related to biofuels, including: HVO, co-HVO, UCOME, lignocellulosic bioethanol and bio-methane. The projects are expected to increase the company’s annual biofuel output by some 500,000 metric tons by 2030.
