OMV Foundation

To support OMV’s business strategy and evolve our culture, we clearly articulated our OMV Foundation, which answers the questions: Why does OMV exist? What are we doing? How are we getting there?


Our Purpose: The energy for a better life
Energy is part of our lives: conventional and alternative fuels enable mobility.
Natural gas heats homes. Petrochemical products form the basis for plastics we use everywhere – from everyday products to high-tech applications.
Behind all of these products is the energy of OMV: an energy bringing more convenience and more comfort to life. Along the entire value chain, OMV contributes expertise, technological know-how and innovation to improve people’s quality of life. 
Safe. Secure. Responsible. And Profitable.
Today and tomorrow.

Our Business Reason: OMV is producing and marketing oil and gas, innovative energy and high-end petrochemical solutions – in a responsible way.
Oil and gas has been – and will continue to be – the backbone of global energy supply. This is why OMV
has been investing in modern technologies for more plant efficiency, process sustainability and product value. OMV’s innovative capacity and technological expertise safeguard energy for a better life.

Our Principles: Team Spirit, Accountability, Passion, Pioneering Spirit and Performance  - describe what we can expect from each other and how we want to work together.

This is how OMV colleagues approach their work:

Electrical & Mechanical Apprentices (Upstream)

At the TÜV AUSTRIA OMV Academy in the Weinviertel region our apprentices are trained in a variety of fields. The first thing they learn: Besides being interested in engineering and natural sciences, working together as a team and learning from each other is essential to successfully complete their training.

Matthias Schütz, Expert Environment HSSE, Schwechat Refinery (Downstream)

Safety concerns all of us. Without exception. That’s why Matthias Schütz regularly discusses HSSE issues with external contractors on safety walks. This way our partners also benefit from OMV’s high standards and the refinery is setting benchmarks in safety today as well as in the future.
Samir Jawhari, Public Relations Officer, OMV Abu Dhabi (Upstream)
Settling down in a foreign culture is not always easy. But Samir Jawhari uses every trick in the book to make life enjoyable for our expats living far from home: with a healthy portion of organizational skills needed when cooperating with the authorities, real heart and soul, and a pinch of local seasoning he helps new arrivals find a second home in Abu Dhabi.
Johanna Schüssleder, Junior Laboratory Specialist TECH Center & Lab (Upstream)

For Johanna Schüssleder, Pioneering Spirit means having fun tackling challenges, especially when there are new methods to develop. Because her analyses help OMV realize important innovations – making us a technology leader in many areas.
Firebird team members from M&A Legal, Project Finance & Economics, Corporate Development E&P, Discipline Support, Development & Concept Engineering

Cross-divisional collaboration appears to make the impossible possible. The OMV team involved in the “Firebird” project completed the purchase of an interest in the Yuzhno Russkoye field in West Siberia within a very short time, demonstrating an exceptional performance. In doing so, they will make a very important contribution to increasing the Upstream production.
