EMPLOYEES’ CHARITABLE INITIATIVES
SIBUR has been encouraging its employees' charitable initiatives seeking to address issues that are faced by local communities and socially disadvantaged groups, including gratuitous assistance to those in need, and efforts to protect the environment. Working together with SIBUR's corporate volunteers, experts of SIBUR's Formula for Good Deeds social investment program discuss available formats of assistance and help by supplying the needed materials and equipment.
Charitable campaign “A Helping Hand"
In the wake of 2019 summer freshets, tens of thousands of Irkutsk Oblast’s residents found themselves facing an extremely precarious survival situation, having lost literally overnight all sources of their livelihood, their homes or subsistence from their homesteads.
At the call of Natalya Faskhutdinova, Assistant to the General Director of Krasnoyarsk Synthetic Rubber Plant, SIBUR’s sites set up relief aid collection points on their grounds. The Formula Good Deeds’ containers for collecting clothing for people in need were repurposed for a new task. A sweeping information campaign was conducted to inform willing participants about the start of a relief effort to help collect clothing and other items for the inhabitants of the Oktyabrsky and Nizhneudinsk municipalities.

"Our plant’s employees collected 358 kilograms of humanitarian aid. It's hard to tell whether that' s a lot or not. But we have once again been able to see how many kind and caring people there are working for our company including our senior executives, production personnel, and our office staff. There were some who donated money, and those who chose to buy groceries on their own or to bring other items. Knowing that your co-workers are ready to answer your silent call for HELP boosts your confidence and makes you a valuable contributor to initiatives as this one!"
