Naftogaz is one of the largest groups in Ukraine. The company recognizes the social significance of its performance for the country's economy and the Ukrainian society. Naftogaz activity in the field of corporate social responsibility is the group's contribution to Ukraine's sustainable development.
Having in mind the scope of Naftogaz impact on the social and economic life and the environment, taking into account the specifics of the activities of its enterprises, the group has defined priority areas in corporate social responsibility with the consideration for its stakeholders' interests. Naftogaz also takes into account international companies' experience and recommended international CSR standards.
Given that Naftogaz is one of the largest employers in Ukraine, establishing decent and safe working conditions for the employees and their professional development is key priority of the group. It is also important for the company to reduce environmental impact of production companies, as their activities have a significant impact on air, water and land resources. Realizing that a significant proportion of population in the cities, towns and villages where we operate, is employed by Naftogaz group, and the natural gas transmitted by Naftogaz enterprises, is delivered to millions of Ukrainians across the country, we therefore invest in developing local communities and Ukraine at large.
