SUEK is one of the largest taxpayers and employers in all regions of its presence. Participating in the integral development of the regions, we actively invest in social infrastructure and improve the quality of life for local communities, implement programmes to support vulnerable social groups, help in solving acute problems in the field of education and medicine. Many of SUEK's social projects became the benchmark for the mining sector of the economy and received public recognition.
In total, we implement our social programmes in more than 60 cities and towns of Russia. Our projects contribute to the creation of a comfortable social environment in mining towns, reduce the population drain from the eastern regions of Russia and are an effective factor in maintaining social steadiness.
Throughout 2021, SUEK implemented more than 150 social and charity projects in the regions of its presence, allocating $19 million for these means. Due to constructive engagement with regional and municipal authorities, public organizations and local communities, our projects attract significant budgetary and off-budget co-financing and become an essential component of the socio-economic development of areas.
The analyses of results obtained in the process of sociological research and polls make it feasible to evaluate the efficiency of the projects carried out and to define the further directions of social investments.
