The LOTOS Group manages its waste in a manner that is environmentally safe. Waste that cannot be avoided is segregated and stored at designated and labelled sites, in accordance with the terms of relevant decisions.

In accordance with the waste management policies, hazardous and non-hazardous waste is transported by entities licensed to do so, first to undergo recovery processes and then to be treated or disposed of.
The recipients of waste at the LOTOS Group hold appropriate permits to conduct waste management activities.

Grupa LOTOS duly performs all its obligations resulting from the environmental protection laws, as well as product quality and labelling requirements. If used correctly, Grupa LOTOS’ products do not generate any significant environmental impacts.
