"The report illustrates the constant engagement of KMG International, in its capacity as a major player in the Romanian economy, with the local communities, customers, employees and partners, as well as its future commitment to them. The Group's approach to sustainability is to holistically manage risks and opportunities related to our operations in refining, trading, retail and industrial services in compliance with national and international legislation, in order to achieve a high level of profitability for its stakeholders," said Zhanat Tussupbekov, Group CEO.

Over 4,200 of its annual trading partners depend directly on KMG International, and its operations socially impact 30,000 people directly.
