According to the CEE TOP 500 report published by Coface, currently the ORLEN Group is one of the largest corporations in Central and Eastern Europe in terms of revenue. In line with the new Strategy 2030 adopted in November 2020, the ORLEN Group's ambition is to be an active leader of energy transition in Poland and Central Europe.

The ORLEN Group's core business consists in the production and distribution of electric energy, crude oil processing, and production of fuels, petrochemical and chemical products, as well as sale of the Group's products on the retail and wholesale markets. The ORLEN Group is also engaged in hydrocarbon exploration, appraisal and production. The ORLEN Group is one of Poland's largest electricity distributors, operating an electricity grid with a total length of 191 thousand kilometres, covering approximately one-fourth of the territory of Poland. At the end of 2020 ORLEN Group managed 2,855 fuel stations. In 2020, PKN ORLEN acquired RUCH, Poland’s countrywide newsagent chain. Based on the chain of 1,209 RUCH newsagents, the Company will expand its range of stores and catering services beyond service stations. As at the end of 2020, the Group had a network of 114 electric vehicle charging stations. In 2020, the segments with the largest contribution to the ORLEN Group's consolidated EBITDA were Energy and Retail, each of which accounted for approximately 40% of the Group's total profit. The ORLEN Group companies' business also includes services: crude oil and fuel storage, transport, repair and maintenance services, laboratory, security, design, administrative, insurance and financial services.

A significant portion of the ORLEN Group's fuel output is sold through own retail network located in Poland, Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Lithuania.
