Gazprom Neft, together with the Government of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug—Yugra, has identified priority areas for cooperation in corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives in 2021, under an agreement signed by Gazprom Neft CEO Alexander Dyukov and Natalya Komarova, Governor of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug—Yugra.
This agreement covers social projects throughout the region to be implemented with Gazprom Neft’s involvement. Five districts throughout the Okrug — the Khanty-Mansi, Surgutsky, Nizhnevartovsky, Oktyabrsky and Kondinsky districts — will benefit from neighbourhood enhancement initiatives, as well as repairs to roads, highways and social facilities.
A new area for engagement will be collaboration with the Yugra Centre for Civic and Social Initiatives Foundation, to which Gazprom Neft will be allocating resources for treating seriously ill children. In addition to this, the company will be supporting projects directed at maintaining the ethnic culture of the indigenous peoples of the Russian Far North, and maintaining their traditional lifestyle. As before, the XIX “Spirit of Fire” International Cinematography Debut Festival, and the IV “Oil Capital” International Youth Forum will, again, be held with Gazprom Neft’s involvement, and construction of a residential apartment block in Khanty-Mansiysk will continue, with the company’s support.
“The company takes a direct interest in Yugra’s all-round development, and particularly in seeing quality of life here continue to improve. We couldn’t consider our investments, and our technological projects here, to be successful, otherwise. Gazprom Neft always adheres to the principle that the locations in which we operate must be as attractive as possible — not just for living, but for working in. Together with local leadership in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug—Yugra we have identified several social projects to invest in throughout 2021 — all of which we expect to deliver genuine benefits for Yugra locals.”Alexander Dyukov Chairman of the Management Board, Gazprom Neft
“Alongside measures to support essential activities, this document confirms Gazprom Neft’s commitments in terms of environmental safety and corporate social responsibility.”Natalya Komarova Governor, Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug—Yugra
