Financial expenditures for environmental projects in the PGNiG Group in 2015-2017

2017 2016 2015
expenditures for environmental projects (including modernizations and repairs) (PLN million) 26.0 139.5 226.7
including PGNiG 3.9 3.5 1.3

The level of expenditures for environmental projects in the PGNiG Group decreased as compared to the previous year. Boiler plants were modernized and thermal modernization of buildings was performed, having a direct impact on the protection of air in the environment. Costs were also incurred in connection with water protection and waste management initiatives.

The PGNiG TERMIKA Group, while modernizing its generation equipment, takes part in the National Investment Plan and white certificate auctions, receiving free allowances for CO2 emissions for generated electricity as well as financial subsidies. This results in a reduction of emissions of CO2 and other contaminants into the atmosphere.

Member companies of the PGNiG TERMIKA Group have planned expenditures to be spent on environmental projects in 2019-2021 in connection with the entry into force of stricter environmental requirements as a result of BAT Conclusions in the amount of PLN 1,445.6 million. Most of the expenditures arise from the plans to construct new generation units (combined cycle gas turbine unit and two peak gas-fired boiler plants at the Żerań CHP Plant as well as the construction of new sources at the Pruszków CHP Plant), which will replace decapitalized sources that do not fulfill the BAT requirements. The planned investments regarding existing sources are primarily constructions of units that reduce emissions of pollution (denitrogenation, desulfurization and dust extraction) to the levels required in BAT.

Considerable portion of the funds were spent for training on environmental protection and campaigns to promote environmental protection. Costs were also incurred for certification, environmental software and compulsory environmental measurements. More than a dozen awareness meetings were held for employees regarding sustainable transport, waste segregation and minimization of potential adverse impact of the industry on the environment.
