Changes in the ZE PAK’s authorities – Piotr Woźny becomes the President of the Management Board

 

The Supervisory Board of ZE PAK have decided today to appoint Piotr Woźny as the President of the Management Board. Andrzej Janiszowski has also been appointed to the Management Board. Paweł Markowski and Paweł Lisowski, who have resigned from sitting on the Management Board of the Company, remain in the ZE PAK Group and will continue to perform functions on the Management Boards of subsidiaries.

 

The decision of the Supervisory Board to appoint Piotr Woźny as the President, and Andrzej Janiszowski as the Vice-President of ZE PAK, is related to the strategy directions adopted at the beginning of October, the aim of which is to transform ZE PAK into an energy producer based on RES (renewable energy sources).

 

“My goal as the President of the Management Board will be to lead the PAK Group towards the production of environmentally neutral energy as quickly and efficiently as possible. Andrzej Janiszowski, with extensive experience in the field of energy, which he has gained, among others, at PGNiG and the most important consulting companies such as EY or Deloitte, will be a significant reinforcement for the transformation of the entire PAK Group”, said Piotr Woźny, President of the Management Board of ZE PAK.

 

The main assumption of the strategy directions is the gradual phasing out of energy production from lignite, which in the base scenario is to be completed by 2030. In the coming years, ZE PAK will generate more and more energy from renewable energy sources, and after the coal mining process is completed, only green energy will be produced. The date of ending the production of energy from coal is not accidental as the Company intends to fit into the final dates of production of energy from coal set out in the Paris Agreement. Such action of ZE PAK will significantly contribute to the climate neutrality of the Wielkopolska region.

 

“One of the crucial challenges related to the ZE PAK strategy is the social issue. We want to act responsibly here, so that the transition is a socially fair process for the company itself, its employees, and the region's inhabitants. We hope that the effective implementation of our plans will set PAK as a model to follow for other European coal regions”, adds Piotr Woźny.

 

Paweł Markowski and Paweł Lisowski remain in the PAK Group and will continue their work in the Boards of subsidiaries, including KWB Konin and KWB Adamów.

 

Henryk Sobierajski, who has also resigned from the Management Board of ZE PAK, will continue to be present in the energy-related part of the Zygmunt Solorz capital group.
