Communication with stakeholders

  • 102-43

We strive to ensure that our key decisions take into account the needs and expectations of our socio-economic environment. For this purpose, we engage in continuous communication with our stakeholders, adapting the communication channels and language to each group. We not only inform about our activities, but also gather opinions and conduct an open dialog.

Supply chain

  • 102-9

The power plants in Kozienice and Połaniec, the CHP plant in Białystok and heat production plants in Piła and Oborniki lie at the heart of production processes in the ENEA Group. The generation units mentioned above use bituminous coal, biomass, gas and fuel oils. 

  • 414-1

The Group’s demand for bituminous coal is covered, for the most part, by Lubelski Węgiel “Bogdanka” (while the use of other sources increases the safety of supply and is a natural business practice) and other materials are purchased from external suppliers. In 2021, our generation companies used coal from Polish suppliers only. 

ENEA Nowa Energia, for the needs of the Liszków biogas plant, purchases silage, pulp and fruit and vegetable waste that is not suitable for consumption or processing.

In 2021, bituminous coal was supplied to the Generation Segment solely by Polish companies.

Coal from the Bogdanka mine is delivered to the power plants in Kozienice and Połaniec by trains and to the Białystok CHP Plant and the “Zachód” Heat Plant in Białystok by trains and by road. The Połaniec Power Plant and the Białystok CHP Plant in their production processes also use biomass, which is supplied by road and by rail. Deliveries of fuel oil (light-up fuel) to the Połaniec power plant are effected by rail and road transport. The “Zachód” Heat Plant in Białystok owned by ENEA Ciepło, in addition to 4 coal-fired boilers, also has a K1 boiler, in which heat is produced based on grid-supplied gaseous fuel. 

PEC produces heat using coal. The coal is supplied by rail from the mine to the Oborniki railway station and then by road in Oborniki to boiler houses K1 and K4.  

MEC Piła produces heat from coal and electricity and heat through combustion of natural gas and heat in gas engines. Coal is delivered by rail, and then by road transport. The gas is supplied through a gas pipeline. 

The components to the Liszków biogas plant are supplied by road.

The publicly available ENEA Group Code of Conduct for Contractors sets out our basic requirements from suppliers, regarding their compliance with the law and market and ethical standards in respect to human rights and work safety, protection of the natural environment, prevention of corruption and conflict of interest and compliance with the rules of fair competition. The code transfers the values and rules of conduct set out in other documents to the area of broadly-defined cooperation with suppliers. Suppliers acknowledge and agree to apply its provisions in the contracts they sign. 

In the ENEA Group Procurement Policy, one of the rules for structuring procurement processes is to use criteria other than price, with special consideration for social aspects (including professional and social integration of the unemployed, the youth and the disabled), environmental aspects (including energy efficiency of the subject of contract) and innovativeness. The offer evaluation criteria are determined on the basis of procurement regulations, for each procurement process individually. In each procurement process, the same criteria are applied to all contractors. 

In 2021, a new derivative act named Rules for evaluating contractors in the General Purchasing Procurement Area in the ENEA Group. It should unify the rules for evaluating cooperation with contractors in the specified area.
