Our community investment priorities are sports, health, education, environment and charitable giving. Our operations are crucial parts of local economies, which makes our investments even more important. We therefore aim to provide stable employment, meet all local tax obligations, pay industry leading salaries and work closely with local government and community representatives to identify investment projects.
EuroChem is a significant employer and its operations can have a significant impact on local environments and local economies.
Given their strategic importance, our investments and projects are under the control of the Board of Directors. Individual projects are coordinated by our Administrative Director, who liaises with corporate and plant management teams who engage with community representatives. Investments are made on a co-financing basis (public-private and private-NGO) and projects are ongoing in all of the regions within which we operate.
Where we have created recreation, sports and rehabilitation facilities for our employees, these are also made available to local residents. In many cases, the energy generation or environmental controls built for our plants also serve local communities.
All investment decisions are made in conjunction with local community partners and are open to scrutiny from within and outside the company, including relevant stakeholders, international experts/ academics and all relevant government authorities.
