During the cooperation, special attention will also be paid to the sale of fuels and lubricants, the development of alternative fuels, the exchange of knowledge on energy efficiency, and the establishment of special filling and service points.

We see great opportunities in strengthening the relationship between Waberer’s and MOL, and we believe that this strategic cooperation can have positive effects not only in Hungary, but also on a regional level. Both MOL and Waberer’s are committed to sustainable solutions, and the cooperation can significantly contribute to strengthening traditional business activities and regional security of supply.” – said dr. György Bacsa, Managing Director of MOL Hungary.

MOL’s goal is to successfully implement joint projects with Hungary market-leading complex logistics service providers that contribute to the implementation of the company’s SHAPE TOMORROW 2030+ strategy. The objective of the strategy is to become a key player in MOL’s low-carbon circular economy in Central and Eastern Europe and to supply the mobility sector with low-carbon fuels.

Zsolt Barna, Chairman and CEO of Waberer’s International Plc. said at the signing of the cooperation agreement that “The strategic agreement concluded with MOL Group is a confirmation of a nearly twenty-year-old partnership, which can take the relationship between the two companies to a new level by maximally committing themselves to the application of sustainability solutions.
