Sustainable development

When drafting and implementing its business strategy, Gazprom Neft seeks to ensure an optimal balance in its economic, environmental and social interests. In 2015, Gazprom Neft set the goal of realising its slogan ‘Goal — Zero: No Harm to People, Objects or the Environment’

The Company recognises its responsibility to present and future generations and strives to utilise natural resources as carefully as possible, minimise environmental risks in its production activities and carry out environmental measures and projects to preserve biodiversity.

Gazprom Neft aspires to be the best employer in Russia by continuously increasing investment in HR development, providing employees with competitive remuneration and developing social support programmes.

The Company makes a significant contribution to the socioeconomic development of the regions where it operates. The ‘Native Towns’ Programme, a social investment programme sponsored by Gazprom Neft, aims to improve the quality of life for the Company’s local communities and address crucial problems in regional development.

This section describes the Company’s approach to sustainable development and the main results of its activities in this regard. Detailed information is presented in the Sustainable Development Report of Gazprom neft PJSC for 2015.
