Gazprom Neft has joined the United Nations’ Global Compact — the largest international corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainable development initiative in the world. In joining the initiative, the Company has confirmed its commitment to aligning its business strategy, decision-making processes and operational activities with the Global Compact’s 10 principles on human rights, labour relations, environmental protection and fighting corruption, with a particular focus on developing partnerships and technological innovation.
Gazprom Neft invests considerable resources in ensuring a high level of occupational health and safety, and to enhancing the social and economic potential of the areas in which it operates. The Company is committed to strengthening its position within the global oil industry, and to being a benchmark in terms of safety, efficiency and technological advancement. Gazprom Neft’s Development Strategy 2030 has been adopted to that end, and is predicated on the company’s complete digital, cultural, operational and organisational transformation.
“Safety, protecting the environment and developing the regions in which we operate have been a priority for our company for many years. We have always prioritised the health, wellbeing and employment rights of our employees — who now number over 77,000, and we are proud to be recognised as one of Russia’s most attractive employers by a number of surveys and rankings. Signing up to the United Nations Global Compact is further confirmation of our adherence to the principles of sustainable development, and of Gazprom Neft’s commitment to maintaining openness and transparency, to promoting partnerships, and to sharing best practices with the international community.”Alexander Dyukov Chairman of the Management Board, Gazprom Neft
