Inextricably linkedtogether with society as a whole, Petrolina responds in practice to the needs of Cypriot society both in times of prosperity and in times of crisis, aiming not only to play a responsible role in the economic development of the country but also to always be at the side of our fellow human beings.

Makingan integral part of the social fabric of the place, with the concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR) existing for decades and acting as a driving force of the human-centered development strategy, Petrolina supports the needs of our fellow human beings in every possible way. It adapts its actions to meet the needs of the Cypriot society and economy. We thus apply a policy of corporate social responsibility over time that covers a wide range of activities and develops in five axes: Social Solidarity, Health, Culture-Sports-Education, Environment and Working Environment.

Corporate Sustainability and Prosperity

The Petrolina,listening to the demands of the times, it adapts and highlights its modern profile, turning to production methods that achieve its sustainability. The integration of ESG criteria is within the framework of our strategic priorities, targeting issues of environmental protection, contribution to society and people and corporate governance, criteria that not only strengthen the resilience of the company but promise a more prosperous future. Which means that our actions/goals have a positive impact on both the company and society.

In this context we have embraced the energy transition with determination and in the context of the sustainable strategy development of the company, we created pcharge, the new Petrolina brand that offers complete solutions in the field of electric mobility.

5th Petrolina Offer Festival

The Petrolina Offer Festival is the culmination of the company's EKE actions and has been established as an institution, highlighting the importance of giving back to fellow human beings. With the message “Together in every dream, in every wish!”, the 5th Petrolina Bid Festival was dedicated to strengthening the Pan-Cypriot Association for children with cancer and related diseases “One Dream One Wish”. Thanks to the enthusiastic action of more than 300 volunteers from the Petrolina Community, Petrolina Kids Community and other volunteer friends, the Festival surpassed any previous audience attendance, including music, dance, food, games, favorite footballers, artists and a big concert with the popular singer Giorgos Sampanis.

At the same time, we stand next to the Pan-Cypriot Association “A Dream, a Wish”, supporting the fulfillment of wishes of children with cancer.

We support, at the same time, the “Christina Apostolou” foundation for the financial support of children and young people with chronic diseases, the “Agios Lazaros” Center for special needs and the “Agios Spyridonas” Special School. Also, the Iasonio Center for Adults with Special Needs – Colors of Life, with financial support and fuel provision to support day care and programs for people over 21 years old, as well as the Association of Friends of Agia Skepi Therapeutic Community. We are also next to Cans for Kids by providing free fuel to their vehicles.

As a memberof the SupportCY social network, we have supported vulnerable groups during the pandemic, operating directly and multifacetedly due to the increased needs that arose. In the last 3 years, we have strengthened efforts to prevent and deal with fires through motorized patrols throughout Cyprus, as part of the Fire Prevention Programs “So it doesn't happen again” and “Become a Fire Detector”. In the same context, we immediately responded to the deadly fire of July 2021 by donating fuel to the aircraft that participated in its extinguishment. Additionally, we participated in the provision of free fuel on a Cyprus Airways flight for earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria.
