The global spread of the corona virus has not only suddenly changed our social life, but also disrupted usual supply chains and supply routes. OMV's primary task is to supply the country with energy in a safe and responsible manner. As one of the largest listed industrial companies in Austria, OMV also bears social responsibility for society. For this reason, OMV is supporting relief flights of the Austrian Federal Government for public health facilities and aid organizations that have become necessary due to the coronavirus crisis with Jet A1 fuel worth up to EUR 500,000. The relief flights operated by Austrian Airlines will bring urgently needed medical materials such as protective suits, masks and disinfectants directly to Austria.
“Health and well-being are our top priority, both in our own company among our employees and in our social responsibility. This is why we support the relief flights of the Austrian government, which bring urgently needed materials into the country in such a difficult supply situation – to protect the entire population, especially people in medical professions”, says Rainer Seele, Chairman of the OMV Executive Board and CEO.

We supply the society with energy reliably and responsibly - but we want more: We want to shape the energy of tomorrow. That's why we have set ourselves sustainability targets for 2025. This not only means 19% less CO2, using resources more efficiently and developing CO2-neutral energy sources - we will also use waste as a new raw material. With our ReOil innovation, we are turning plastic waste back into high-quality oil. This will enable us to recycle up to 50% of Austria's plastic waste and make it useful again.
