‘Headed for the Baltic Sea’

Currently, 80% of the global trade is transported by sea. The growing demand for maritime transport is a development opportunity for Poland. The Baltic Sea is one of the busiest sea basins in the world. However, in order to fully exploit this potential, it is necessary to map of needs concerning the expansion of connections and port facilities, development of terminal infrastructure, construction of platforms and logistics centres.

At the same time, it must be remembered that the Baltic Sea was identified as a particularly sensitive sea area by the International Maritime Organisation and is subject to special protection. Therefore, it is important to ensure that its sustainable development.

To this extent , we work jointly with local authorities and foundations under the ‘Headed for the Baltic Sea’ project. It combines our environmental efforts that we made under the ‘LOTOS Protects the Baltic Sea Wildlife’ and the ‘Protect the Wildlife of the Sobieszewo Island’ programmes in 2016. ‘Headed for the Baltic Sea’ is a partnership project focused on science and research, but it also seeks to promote active environmental protection and enhance environmental awareness.
