ESG Report of the
ENEA Capital Group for 2020

Management of raw materials and consumables

We manage the raw materials and consumables used in our activity in the most efficient and environmentally safe manner.

  • 103-1
  • 103-2
  • 103-3
For this purpose, we are striving to continuously improve efficiency of the processes we run. We achieve this by introducing solutions consistent with the circular economyconcept and investing in new technologies, especially plant modernizations. We also ensure appropriate handling of waste and wastewater.

Energy resources

As we produce electricity and heat, we consume significant amounts of energy resources: bituminous coal, gas, biomass and fuel oils. The basic fuel used by us to generate electricity is bituminous coal. Biomass fired by us is mainly energy wood chips, energy willow and poplar chips as well as by-products of agricultural production and agricultural product processing industry.

Water is necessary to produce electricity, we use water, among others, in power plant cooling systems. We apply a number of technological solutions which allow us to return water to the Vistula river, preserving its quantity and quality.

In respect to water management, our companies develop solutions in the area of a circular economy concept. Examples of good practices include actions carried implemented in connection with coal mining, such as the use of mine water for firefighting and technological purposes.

Production of various waste products is a natural consequence of our activities, primarily mining and generating activities. We strive to produce as little waste as possible and each year we manage to reduce the quantities.

We make effort not only to minimize the amount of waste but also to utilize it:

  • the power plant in Połaniec sells gypsum from flue gas desulfurization as well as ash and gravel which are by-products of combustion,
  • Lubelski Węgiel “Bogdanka” uses mining waste for land reinstatement, road and square hardening and for the production of cement, and also provides authorized units with, among others, wood and used oils, for management.
  • ENEA Bioenergia sp. z o.o. produces full-value construction aggregate using ash and slag mixture obtained from wet furnace waste disposal.


We are developing measures to reduce paper consumption. The greatest responsibility in this respect rests with ENEA Centrum, which provides other ENEA Group companies with, among others, accounting, HR, customer service, collection, procurement and administration services. The measures implemented by the company include, among others, extending the possibility of electronic signing of contracts, enabling transmission of documents by e-mail, through a chat and the Electronic Customer Service Office (i.e. it is no longer necessary to print them out and send by traditional mail), combining documents (invoices, corrections, interest notes are sent in a single envelope to a contractor with the same correspondence address on several contracts) or e-invoice promotion campaign.
