Leading in the green transition
The energy transition in Poland is a tremendous process that impacts the entire society and economy. A change as large as this requires a leader that facilitates decarbonisation without sacrificing the stability of the electricity and heating systems. By changing the energy industry, we are building an organisation that is an integral part of its surroundings – a partner to local communities and the natural environment.
Green transition is part of the PGE Group's business objectives. Thanks to our investments, Poland's residents are already benefiting from electricity produced by environmentally friendly sources. In 2022 alone, energy produced by the PGE Group's renewable sources reached a record high of 1,931 GWh, over 5 percent more than in the previous year. As the leader of Poland's green energy transition, with energy from RES we are able to cover the annual demand of 860,000 households, the size of the Lodz region.
PGE Group’s response to climate change encompasses a new business strategy, which includes the goal of climate neutrality by 2050. In 2021, PGE Group continued its efforts aimed at the redesign of its generation portfolio towards low- and zero-emission sources. The effects of the actions taken are already visible, and the positive emission reduction trend will continue in the coming years.
PGE as the leader of sustainable energy transition in Poland, including in environmentally friendly energy, is committed to reducing its impact on the environment through:
- decarbonising generation through technology change, expanding its RES portfolio and enabling its customers to participate in the transition,
- increasing the use of renewable sources and decarbonising the portfolio,
- developing a circular economy,
- reaching climate neutrality
At the same time, we recognize that PGE’s role as a leader in the green transition is to raise public awareness, hence our contribution to promoting energy transition and ESG-based management and engaging business partners.
