The TAURON Group is an economic organization made up of independent commercial law companies, led by TAURON Polska Energia S.A. as the parent company.
The management of the TAURON Group is carried out based on two internal documents: the Code of the Group and the TAURON Group’s Business and Operational Model.
The management of the TAURON Group is based on the leading role of the corporate center, i.e. the parent company – TAURON Polska Energia S.A., which manages the subsidiaries that are part of the Lines of Business and Shared Services Centers. Relations with respect to making decisions are regulated by the Code of the Group, which is the core regulatory act of the TAURON Group.
