Broader social contribution

Our company’s primary objective is to promote and support actions designed to relieve the needs of less advantaged social groups. To this end, the company offers help to agencies that have demonstrated significant work in this area over a number of years.

In 2013, as in previous years, with the economic crisis continuing to have a serious impact on the country and on our fellow citizens, we have made donations to organizations, institutions and agencies intended, inter alia, to provide relief to impoverished families and help them with their most basic needs. We have provided support for many community actions, provided food for the indigent through municipal and church organizations, supported the work of charitable organizations and foundations, supported actions for health and supplied large quantities of heating oil to the municipalities bordering on our refinery facilities and other selected areas across the country.
