Lessons Learned during the Pandemic – Stories of Business Successes and Failures
Today, the topic of how to create the necessary conditions [for remote work — Editor] is of great importance: eleven thousand laptops purchased; software reinstalled; electronic jobs created. No, we cannot add a separate office room, but creating the right conditions was quite important. Hours of silence, days without meetings, [...] so that people could plan a space for themselves — they are at home after all. This is a rather important ethical conclusion, which we come to, unfortunately, after having made a certain number of mistakes

The Far East: Resource Frontier or Driver of Growth?
As of today, our facility will be getting over 3 million tonnes of feedstock from the Amur <…> Gas Processing Plant. Gazprom set up this largest ethane processing operation. We are developing this resource. This is a unique facility in our country. We mostly look up to the countries of the Persian Gulf – they focus on this light feedstock. Ethane is a precious feedstock that is now used as a fuel alternative. Such a large project for processing ethane and light gases is one of a kind both in Russia and globally, unfortunately

The Environment in the Far East: Current Objectives and Long-Term Prospects
The essence of our work with the Ministry, Rosprirodnadzor [Federal Service for Supervision of Natural Resources, — Ed.] and business is the following: through local systems that are still under way we need to understand where most of the waste is generated — the Minister was right to call it business. It will help us better understand volumes and composition, which is still unknown in most regions as of today

Housing, Utilities, and the Urban Environment: Effective Investments
In a small town of Svobodny, together with our partners and with the support of the Ministry headed by Vladimir Vladimirovich [Yakushev, – Ed.], we worked out a system that actually allows us to implement the concession. I am talking about the public-private cooperation, where the funds of the investor go directly into this concession to replace all water supply and drainage pipes. In Svobodnoye, 65% come from us, and by 35% are, respectively, from the public funds. <...> Our holding, a local investor and the local authorities are currently using the concession to build such an opportunity, which will allow 80% of worn-out networks in parts of the districts of Svobodnoye to be replaced by polymer solutions and ensure the economic life of all these networks for another 25–30 years after the end of the concession

When we address human-centeredness, we should not forget that it is not just a person we work with – it is a whole family. We endorse relocation of whole families; we help with employment for their children; together with initiating investment programmes, we call on regional authorities to develop kindergartens and schools; we prepare a comfortable social infrastructure for people

Around half of the country’s chemical products are exported, but we continue to use traditional materials a lot. You would be hard pressed to find other countries with similar levels of wood, metal, glass, and paper usage. Unfortunately, these figures are still growing

Breakthrough in the Far East: How to Become a Leader for Growth in Private Investment
We witnessed a evolution of this legislature, namely the extension of its lifecycle as initially the TAD law presumed it would be in operation for 3 years. Taxation code amendments have been adopted in 2017 that extended this legislature to 9 years. Thus, it’s a long-term benefit for the investors working on large scale projects with CAPEX over RUB 100 billion <…> Aside, I’d like to announce that tomorrow we’re planning to sign a basic agreement with Gazprom for the span of a few decades that would cement the intentions we spoke about at various stages of 2017
