Hometowns

All of Gazprom Neft’s social activities since 2013 have been carried out within the framework of the ‘Native Towns’ social investment programme. The programme’s portfolio of social and charitable projects is compiled based on the results of interaction with stakeholders (the public, employees, regional authorities, non-profit organisations) and a range of studies concerning the socioeconomic situation of a particular region. When scaling interregional projects in a region where the Company operates, their content is determined in accordance with the needs of the local target audiences. As it implements the ‘Native Towns’ programme, the Company strives for local residents to become more involved in carrying out social projects. This helps to boost their commitment and competence in resolving regional development problems and achieve a long-term systemic effect from social investments. A key tool in meeting this objective is the concept of grant contests for social initiatives. In 2015, such contests were held in the Omsk, Tomsk and Orenburg Regions, the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District and the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District — Yugra. The grant fund totalled RUB 21.89 million.

In 2015, the ‘Native Towns’ programme encompassed 34 regions and included more than 450 implemented projects. Investment in social activities amounted to more than RUB 3,966 million in 2015.
