The 2018 Report is the tenth sustainable development report prepared by Sakhalin Energy. It reflects the innovative approaches and practices of the company in various fields of activity.
The topic of innovation was specially chosen for the 2018 Report, since it was to be published in the year when the company celebrates its 25th anniversary. Over the years, Sakhalin Energy has developed and applied a range of innovations and unique technologies unparalleled anywhere in the world.
The 2018 Report discloses information about the company’s activities under the Sakhalin-2 project, including personnel management and development, production organisation, environmental and industrial safety assurance, biodiversity preservation, stakeholder engagement, social investment, and so on.
