Taking into account the strategic guidelines of LUKOIL Group, the Company's experience in implementing environmental and industrial safety programs, social programs for employees of our entities and for the regions in which our enterprises operate, as well as the expectations of interested parties, we haveidentified 11 priority UN Sustainable Development Goals and 15 Targets.
These goals and targets are harmoniously combined with operational programs implemented by LUKOIL Group entities, and are part of corporate planning and budgeting. Therefore, we believe that their implementation, alongside other steps taken by the Company, largely determines the contribution LUKOIL Group makes to achieve the UN global Sustainable Development Goals.
