HES stands firmly against the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the humanitarian crisis it is causing. The loss of life and humanitarian impact is tragic and painful for all to witness, and HES supports all efforts to help people affected by war and bring peace.
HES does not operate any assets in Russia, and has no directors or corporate officers in any external Russian entity. HES also closely adheres to all sanctions that the EU, UK and US have imposed on Russia in response to the invasion.
As an essential service provider, it is our duty to support our customers and make our contribution to securing Europe’s energy supplies, especially in such difficult times. In compliance with current sanctions, our teams are working to continue to securely supply raw materials for our customers across Europe. In our view it is important that the EU and other countries in which we are active urgently reduce dependence on Russian commodity exports.
The human impact of this conflict is devastating. One of our terminals in Poland, HES Gdynia Bulk Terminal, is close to the border with Ukraine and there are close ties with the people of Ukraine on both personal and business levels. With full support from HES, our colleagues in Poland are doing their utmost in supporting humanitarian efforts for the people of Ukraine. A financial donation has been made to support the Gdynia City in organizing help for Ukrainians coming to Gdynia. Furthermore, there is help available, financially, and materially, for employees from HES Gdynia Bulk Terminal who take Ukrainian refugees into their homes.
