Goals and results in 2016

Extend social investment management best practices to the Company’s subsidiaries. Scale the ‘Native Towns’ programme to 14 of the Company’s subsidiaries
Goal achieved.
Provide further assistance for the qualitative transformation of the social environment of the regions where it operates through advanced social project planning tools and innovative solutions for the socioeconomic development of the regions and also involve the government authorities, the business community, non-profit organisations and the local population in the transformation process
One of the innovative social project planning tools was utilised in Omsk and Khanty-Mansiysk in 2016 with the establishment of a project laboratory. The use of such social investment tools as grant competitions for social initiatives and corporate volunteering, among other things, contributed to the active involvement of all stakeholders in the regional development process.
Expand successful practices in the regions. Scale the interregional projects: the ‘Multiplying Talent’ tournament, ‘Stenograffia’ festival, ‘DIY City’ project laboratory and the ‘Native Town’ festival
Goal achieved. Detailed results are presented in the ‘Social activities of the Company’ section.
Modernise the system used to prepare for and implement social projects by introducing a corporate standard that regulates the interaction of the Company’s corporate headquarters and subsidiaries in the regions where it operates
The ‘Procedure for Preparing, Protecting, Implementing and Monitoring the Social Investments of Subsidiaries’ was drafted and approved.
Document the Company’s policy with respect to the indigenous peoples of northern Russia taking into account the Company’s existing practices and the standards of generally accepted international documents
The Company launched a programme in 2016 to systematise engagement with indigenous peoples of northern Russia and analyse existing practices and international standards. A Company policy will be formulated with respect to such peoples based on this work. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2017.
