Sakhalin Energy has become the only Russian company whose experience is included in the UN Global Goals Yearbook 2021. Being one of the most authoritative international publications, it covers various approaches to accomplishing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
This year, the company spoke about the implementation of a set of measures aimed at protecting the health of staff and supporting local communities in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since some of the Sakhalin-2 project personnel are represented by residents of Russia’s different regions, Sakhalin Energy has developed a logistics scheme for the transportation of rotational shift employees to prevent the ingress of the infection into the company’s production facilities. In addition, among the company’s key measures was a prompt decision to organise temporary accommodation facilities on the island, where employees spent two weeks in self-isolation before the shift.
In the challenging period, when the pandemic had produced a negative impact on all areas of the country’s activities, Sakhalin Energy updated corporate social investment programmes and did its best to implement them in its host region. The company’s priority in 2020 was to render assistance to healthcare institutions and families that had fallen on hard times.
Sakhalin Energy has committed to strictly observing the principles in the field of human rights from the very beginning of its activities. In 2009, Sakhalin Energy reinforced them by joining the UN Global Compact – the largest global initiative for promoting corporate social responsibility. In 2011, Sakhalin Energy became the first Russian company selected by the United Nations to participate in the new sustainable corporate leadership platform – the Global Compact LEAD. Participation in the LEAD is a demonstration of the continued commitment to the UN Global Compact and its Ten Principles.
