Eligible project focus areas
This focus area's priority is to create a comfortable and modern environment where residents of even small towns can have access to the same variety of opportunities available in a major city. Projects like this allow people to create new objects and practices, and to transform familiar social models. As its partners, the company is engaging with government bodies, public organizations and institutions, local residents, and volunteers.
When developing science and technical education, the company applies the principles of a systematic approach to development. The goals of the projects in this area include: development of the education infrastructure, implementation of innovative methods, stimulating students' interest and motivation to study chemistry and other natural science disciplines.
SIBUR has been providing diverse and comprehensive support for various projects aimed at promoting sports and healthy living. In the cities where the company operates, it has invested in renovating sports facilities, holding competitions and festivals in a variety of athletic disciplines, and in training and developing the qualifications of coaches and other sports specialists. Over the history of the program, its participants have accumulated a wealth of methodological and organizational experience.
A comfortable natural environment is a fundamental prerequisite for any human activity in any area. Projects of this kind contribute to maintaining biodiversity, fostering a responsible attitude to nature, and encouraging separate waste collection. Environmental projects bring together representatives of environmental organizations, enthusiasts, volunteers, and concerned citizens.
The level of culture in a city or region determines the quality of life there. SIBUR has been contributing to the development of the communities’ cultural environment, and the residents’ creative potential. It has also been making efforts to increase the city's appeal to tourists. Cultural projects have included various striking and memorable events, measures to support artistic groups, exchange of experience and training, as well as the development of new leisure and recreational opportunities for the public.
The Formula for Good Deeds program helps rally SIBUR’s employees and residents of the cities where SIBUR operates around common human values and encourages their involvement in joint volunteer projects that are important to local communities. These efforts help expand and grow the volunteering movement in Russia's regions and effect positive changes there.
