In the context of the stated strategic goals of the Company, we consider the balanced development of the Company taking into account the philosophy of sustainable development and the constant creation of value throughout the entire value chain.
So, during 2016 the Company actively worked to expand export volumes (Russia and Kyrgyzstan), study the possibilities of enriching Ekibastuz coals, use innovative power storage systems at the Company’s power plants, introduce environmentally friendly technologies, deliver investment projects that are implemented to add value and maintain power plans.
At the same time, it is worth highlighting a separate scope of the Company’s work in the field of sustainable development.

For these purposes, the Company on a regular basis interacts with its stakeholders, identifying their needs and expectations, which in a balanced way are taken into account and used in operations. In 2016, we developed a Sustainable Development Guideline that regulates sustainable development policies and concepts, analysis of the internal and external environment, key sustainable development risks, a stakeholder map, a matrix of relevance and the most important point, sustainable development goals. I am convinced that the responsible policy of the Company in matters of sustainable development will help achieve the goals set for the Company.
