In 2020, ROSATOM joined the UN Global Compact Network, which unites sustainable businesses across the globe.

As part of this step, ROSATOM confirmed its commitment to the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact in the sphere of human rights, employment, the environment and anti-corruption; the Corporation also expressed its intention to integrate the principles of the UN Global Compact into its strategy, culture and operations.

Membership of this global initiative is yet another sign that our efforts on the Russian and international markets are appreciated by the global sustainable community.

We seek to make further progress in the sphere of sustainable development, improve our production processes, develop new products and contribute to climate action by developing low-carbon solutions for the electricity industry; we also implement a set of measures to make our product line more sustainable, as ROSATOM’s mission is to leverage high technology for the benefit of humanity.
