METINVEST’S ACTIVITY IS CLOSELY CONNECTED WITH THE FUTURE OF THE CITIES AND TOWNS WHERE THE GROUP’S ENTERPRISES ARE CITY-FORMING. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR THE COMPANY, AS THE RESPONSIBILITY BETWEEN THE LOCAL COMMUNITY AND THE EMPLOYEES OF THE ENTERPRISE IS OF THE SAME VALUE.
The company sees its social goal in achieving the following socially-important objectives:
- Creating new jobs and increasing life quality in the areas of presence;
- Introducing modern management standards in the activities associated with charitable and other socially important projects and programs;
- Increasing human assets quality.
For Metinvest, social investment means, first of all, an active financial and non-financial involvement in life of local communities, which results in the systemic quality changes in various spheres of public and private life.
Priorities in implementing Metinvest Group’s social investment activities:
- Development of social infrastructure
- Culture and sports
Areas of social investment activities:
- Social partnership programs with cities and towns of presence
- Corporate social programs
- Programs with international partners
The policy of social responsibility implemented by the Company provides for a gradual transition from charitable acts to the systematic and transparent interaction between the enterprises and the local communities, i.e. to the formation of the basis for social partnerships. When selecting social investment projects, strategic priority is given to those significant projects and programs that are initiated by the local authorities and that enable the Company to make an apparent and long-term contribution to solve the existing social problems.
In the frames of the programs aimed at social partnership with cities and towns, the Company focuses its efforts on the implementation of large social projects in the areas of presence, which makes it possible to significantly increase the quality of life of the community, and cooperates with charitable and non-governmental organizations that render support to vulnerable segments of population.
Today, Metinvest also switches over to new social investment programs which provide for the long-term and comprehensive planning and much more active involvement of the local communities in this process. These are, first of all, new corporate social programs and the programs with international partners. By obtaining in such a way the peak effective distribution and development of resources and channeling them to solve the most topical problems of the areas, we help the municipal institutions and public organizations to expand their capacities and competencies in management of their town’s social development.
