The energy for a better life:
As one of the largest listed companies in Austria, OMV bears a major social responsibility.

Ski jumping is a sport of dynamism, excitement and fun that is constantly evolving and moving. OMV promotes the "Eagles" of the Austrian men's team. Thanks to the intensive, long-term and reliable partnership between the ÖSV and OMV, many great achievements in World Championships and Olympic Games could be celebrated together.
OMV is proud to be a long-standing partner in ski jumping and wishes its athletes much success and energy for further highs!
50 years of OMV – GAZPROM:
Old Masters from the Hermitage at the Kunsthistorisches Museum
2018 is the year OMV and GAZPROM look back on a 50-year partnership. What started out in 1968 with the first Russian gas delivered to Austria has developed in a successful longstanding cooperation. The two companies have been supplying Austria and Europe with energy and heat reliably for decades. This is why two years ago OMV and GAZPROM decided to expand their successful economic partnership through complementary projects in the cultural and social spheres.
To mark the 50-year anniversary, one of Europe’s most significant art collections came to Vienna thanks to OMV and GAZPROM. Masterpieces from the St. Petersburg Hermitage by artists such as Tintoretto, Botticelli, Rembrandt and van Dyck were displayed in Vienna in all their splendor and entered into a fascinating dialog with the paintings of the Kunsthistorisches Museum.
The sumptuous exhibition “Old Masters from the Hermitage. Masterpieces from Botticelli to van Dyck” could be seen from June 6 to September 2, 2018, at the Kunsthistorisches Museum. The exhibition will be shown in the State Hermitage in St. Petersburg in the fall.
OMV is general sponsor of the Vienna State Opera
The Vienna State Opera is one of the world’s most important opera houses. With its first-rate casts, combination of the Vienna State Opera Orchestra and the Vienna Philharmonic, and an extensive repertoire, the opera house on Vienna’s Ring Road is one of a kind and enjoys a superb reputation.
OMV is a general sponsor of the renowned house on Vienna’s Ring Road. Additionally, OMV has supported the development of the live stream WIENER STAATSOPER live at home. Opera lovers around the globe can experience selected opera and ballet productions live from the comfort of their homes.
With this partnership, OMV is providing long-term support to an internationally renowned Austrian cultural institution and – as an internationally operating company – reinforcing its commitment to fostering cultural dialog.
OMV is partner of the Leopold Museum
The Leopold Museum is one of the most popular museums in Vienna. OMV is a partner of the museum with important works by Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. The cooperation with the Leopold Museum enables international guests, partners and employees to experience one of the most important collections of modern Austrian art in the World.
In 2018 OMV is supporting the jubilee exhibition of Egon Schiele in honor of the 100th anniversary of his death. The exhibition is shown from February 23 until November 4, 2018.
OMV is a partner of the Wiener Konzerthaus
OMV is a longstanding partner of the Wiener Konzerthaus. In recent years OMV sponsored the cycle "Fridays@7" several times. For the season 2018/19, OMV is sponsoring the cycle "Vorhören" and the concerts "Im Klang".
The cycle "Vorhören" is highly recommended for families with children. The first part of the concert takes children on a discovery tour through the Wiener Konzerthaus. Special features and puzzles are explored creatively in age-appropriate introductions to the works. In the second part of the concert, parents and children listen together as the musical works that were explained in the preceding part are now brought to life.
"Im Klang" gives the audience an exceptional music experience. For this concert the members of the Wiener Symphoniker are spread out far apart from each other on the ground floor of the Großer Saal, with the concertgoers taking up their seats in between the musicians. This puts the audience in the mid of the sound, allowing them to experience the orchestra closer than ever before.
OMV is partner of the Austrian National Library
The Austrian National Library is celebrating its 650th anniversary in 2018 with a number of events. "The Library in Film" was presented in the Metrokinokulturhaus from June 7 to June 17, 2018. OMV was the main sponsor of the film festival.
Libraries are surprisingly often the subject of films. The range of libraries includes fascinating monasteries to large, modern functional buildings, to prison libraries. The series was showed documentaries as well as world-famous film classics, such as "The Name of the Rose."
OMV has been a partner of the Austrian National Library for several years and has supported this Austrian cultural institution in the past with various exhibitions, as a book sponsor, and with developing the literature museum.
