Anti-Fraud and Anti-Corruption Hotline

A system to combat fraud and corruption is in operation at Gazprom Neft, the main component of which is the Gazprom Neft Hotline.

The Hotline is a mechanizm to collect and process information about any signs of violations of company regulations, administrative offenses, or crimes. Its goal is to provide everybody with the opportunity to report violations at Gazprom Neft, its subsidiaries, and affiliated companies.

Recognizing that any violation of law is a threat to successfully advancing the business, Gazprom Neft strives to develop and employ the best tools to combat violations, including the use of the best global corporate practices in defending against such threats.

The Hotline's operating principles
