The team of the Formula for Good Deeds social investment program has held its fourth webinar titled Project sustainability: how to achieve it? This online session was held within the framework of a  training program for volunteers.

The webinar was attended by employees of 13 of the company’s enterprises: Amur GCC, ZapSibNeftekhim, Krasnoyarsk Synthetic Rubber Plant, Petrochemical Transport Company, Nizhnekamskneftekhim, RusVinyl, SIBUR, SiburTyumenGaz, Sibur-Neftekhim, Sibur-PETF, Sibur Connect, and Tomskneftekhim.

At the webinar, the program’s experts presented SIBUR's sustainable development strategy to the attendees while also sharing their practical experience in developing a sustainability strategy for one of their volunteering projects.

Ekaterina Vereshchagina, an expert with the Formula for Good Deeds program, discussed
SIBUR’s sustainable development goals that could prove to be helpful in achieving projects’ sustainability. Additionally, she shared recommendations on how to recruit human, financial and intellectual resources, and provided useful links and materials.

Alisa Safronova, a coordinator of SIBUR’s volunteering program, spoke about the hallmarks of a project’s sustainability highlighting the various steps that need to be taken to assess sustainability and the key risks that may arise in the course of a project’s development or implementation. Working together with her audience, she examined the criteria of a project’s success and effectiveness that are known to be closely related to the project’s continued success after the funds of the grant have been completely used up.

An upcoming webinar will be dedicated to the topic of inclusivity in volunteering projects. Guest experts are going to share their experience in making projects inclusive while also discussing the various forms of inclusive volunteering. The webinar’s participants will learn how to prep volunteers up for campaigns involving children and adults with special needs. Registration for the webinar will open on July 6 on the #SIBUR’sVolonteers social network.
