social policy introduced by SIBUR as a new shareholder of the company, - I.
Metshin said. - Such an attitude to workers, to working conditions, their
catering services and healthcare is an example to follow. There is no need to
visit Singapore, Turkey or China for this. We will definitely think about how
to bring the director's corps here. Directors of enterprises should study Kazanorgsintez's
experience in attitude towards workers.”

salads and fruits are provided for workers free of charge as part of a new
format of catering for employees. The average check here is about 180 rubles.

health, about the quality of their nutrition, says a lot. In a short period,
the number of people who eat in new canteens has already increased by 50%,”- I.
There are two medical centers on the territory of Kazanorgsintez, the
first of which opened in November last year. Both institutions work around the
clock. Ambulance crews are also on duty around the clock at the enterprise.

million tons. The industrial production index increased by 5% to 105.2%.

“It is very pleasing that over the past year, with an increase in
production volumes, the company has reduced the volume of discharges to the
Volga by more than 1 million cubic meters, and Kazanorgsintez continues this
policy. The ecology of the city is very important, this is our future,”- I.
