The LPG distribution plays a vital role in ensuring essential services are maintained off the gas grid for the benefit of European citizens, rural communities and their economy. Please find Liquid Gas Europe's statement here.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the national LPG associations have been disseminating guiding principles for their members, defined in close collaboration with public health authorities. Further, companies are strictly adhering to national guidance in order to mitigate risk when responding to serve customers and to ensure the safety of their employees.

Please find below a collection of statements from our member associations and companies updated regularly:
