Community Investment

Ventspils nafta is a group of socially responsible companies. The people and the environment matter to us. For that reason, the most advanced environmental technologies are used and high safety standards are observed. Thereby, the company’s employees can be sure of safety in their working environment and enjoy significant benefits, including health insurance. The company’s clients and business partners can count on high-quality services. Investors can be assured about the future potential prospects of their investments. And the Latvian people can be proud of the contribution of Ventspils nafta to Latvia. For that reason, companies of the Ventspils nafta Group support several socially significant projects that are aimed at improving quality of life of the society.

The parent company of Ventspils nafta is certain that the company’s success is closely related to the surrounding society’s well-being and sustainable development. We are aware that facilitating progress is a long-term task, which requires significant investments in human resources. For that reason we support only long-term community projects that favour society’s education and growth.

Latvian association SOS Children’s Villages

Since 1997 the Latvian association SOS Children’s Villages has been providing long-term family based care for children who have lost their parents and implementing family strengthening projects. Its main goal is to create safe and favourable conditions for a child’s development and to do that, considering the child’s individual needs and rights.

Ventspils nafta is all for well-being and sustainable development of the surrounding society. For that reason it supports a socially significant organisation – the Latvian SOS Children’s Villages association, which takes care for the next generation of our society today, by improving the life quality of children who have lost their parents.

In 2014 Ventspils Nafta has donated 10’000 euro to the Latvian SOS Children’s Villages.

In 2016 Ventspils nafta has donated 10’000 euro to the Latvian SOS Children’s Villages.
