First of all, I would like to note that environmental protection is the main message in the 2016 Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability Report of ROSSETI.
The statement from General Director Oleg Budargin pays as much attention to this subject as to the operational results of the Company. My long-standing familiarity with the Company’s activities allows me to confirm that this is not a tribute to the Year of Environmental Protection in Russia, but an integral part of all operations of ROSSETI.
