Number of social projects and their beneficiaries

In 2021, the PGNiG Group companies and the PGNiG Foundation provided support to almost 500 initiatives and events (with PGNiG alone supporting over 120), compared with over 550 in 2020. The number of beneficiaries of the PGNiG Group’s social programmes, including the Foundation’s programmes, is estimated at over 11 million people in 2021. In 2020, the number of beneficiaries of the Group’s support and social projects was estimated at over 20 million. This high number of beneficiaries is due to the extraordinary period of time when the projects were largely devoted to the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
