Sustainable Development

The INK Group follows the concepts of sustainable development by integrating ESG-factors into its activity (Environmental, Social and Governance). Commitment to the best ESG-practices is the basis of implementing strategic priorities of the Group and an integral component of its business strategy.

A starting point of the Group can be deemed the year of 2008 when the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) became the shareholder of JSC INK-Capital (holding companyy of the Group). This was a momentous event for the Group: work processes were infused with the best global standards and practices in occupational health, industrial and environmental protection.

In 2009, Irkutsk Oil Company LLC presented a project of gas re-injection at the Yaraktinsky field that was internally appraised later on. In 2012, the company received two awards: EBRD awarded the company for achievements in sustainable development, and the Global Bank for achievements in disposal of associated petroleum gas.

In 2013, the Group implemented an integrated health, safety and environment system and started to undertake annual certification audit successfully confirming its compliance with international requirements.

In 2017, the company’s mission and values were formulated which reflected ESG agenda in full. Responsible business practices are a key component of the corporate culture of the INK Group.

Оbjectives of sustainable development
