Orlen Upstream is an ecologically aware Company. The implementation and functioning of the ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management System facilitate identification of relations between the Company's operations and natural environment, which are of key importance in hydrocarbon search and extraction operations. Acting on the basis of appropriate principles, the Company will be able to use natural resources in a responsible manner. It will require a similar approach from its business partners. Implementing the system, the Company's authorities confirmed their commitment to systemic management of the Company's impact on natural environment without any detriment to its core activity for which it was set up.
Being awarded the ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certificates does not preclude further efforts aimed at improving the quality of implemented projects or mitigating the Company's negative impact on the environment. Obligations concerning this issue are included in the Company's current Integrated Management System Policy available on the Company's web site among others www.orlenupstream.pl
