Ethics of conduct of business

The Engineering Division conducts its activities in accordance with legislative requirements, Russian and international standards and obligations assumed by the companies of Rosatom State Corporation in the regions of operation in the Russian Federation and abroad.

When implementing NPP construction projects, the Engineering Division takes into account individual customer requirements and specific features of the countries of operation. Various formats of interaction are used for this purpose taking into account the specifics and interests of the parties:

  • Organization and conduct of environmental impact assessment,
  • Participation in the work of committees, commissions, expert groups on nuclear power development issues, in joint development of standards,
  • Organization of dialogues with stakeholders,
  • Establishment of public counseling offices in regions of operation,
  • Implementation of social and charity programs

Ensuring high standards of customer orientation through the development of a comprehensive integrated offer aimed at meeting unique customer needs and creating targeted value is an integral priority of the Division’s activities.

The Engineering Division regularly discloses information in public annual reports (attachment to the annual report of Rosatom State Corporation) in accordance with the best global practices on sustainable development in order to ensure transparency of its activities and enhancement of the level of awareness of the stakeholders.

The Division is trying to create a stable supply chain during the whole life cycle of NPP construction projects. One of the main tools for working with suppliers in this field is the data reliability audit procedure, which provides verification of compliance of the supplier’s critically important products with the environmental requirements, as well as sustainability in general. Within the framework of the audit, the supplier fills in a questionnaire, which consists of the following sections: Environment, Social Sphere and Corporate Governance, with about 70 questions, including questions on observance of human rights, labor rights, non-discrimination, occupational health and safety.
