Ensuring a stable, social environment in the regions where we operate is important to SUEK and we are implementing a range of socio-economic and charitable programmes to improve the quality of life of our employees, their families and local communities.

SUEK’ s social programmes cover 48 cities and towns in the regions of Russia where we operate. We maintain constructive relationships with regional and municipal authorities as well as non-governmental organisations in order to promote sustainable development of local communities. Regular sociological surveys allow us to assess performance of our programmes and develop new areas for social investment.

Our social priorities include:

  • Working alongside regional authorities to improve housing standards and develop education, sports and medical care
  • Making the regions where the Group operates more attractive to the younger generation, thereby helping to recruit young people to work in the coal mining industry
  • Improving efficiency of social investment in the regions and encouraging greater engagement with non-governmental organisations and the business community

Our social activities in 2014

In 2014, SUEK’s social investment was $16m. We introduced 24 social projects aimed at improving educational, sports, medical care and cultural infrastructure. We completed 50 school programmes which engaged more than 80 students. We held 31 training seminars attended by more than 500 people and organised two inter-regional competitions for social projects. In addition to this we held a whole host of other competitions and festivals. SUEK’s efforts in the community have been reflected in the number of awards in recognition of our high social responsibility.
