Approach and Policies

Sustainable development is a key element of Mechel’s business and corporate culture.

The company seeks both to achieve high production results and to contribute to ecological and social development.

Mechel’s priorities are as follows:
  • Environment protection
  • Employee health and well-being
  • Support for local communities
  • Responsible management practices

Mechel seeks to ensure long-term prosperity not only of its business and employees, but also of the regions where the Group operates. The company follows the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and acts in line with them whenever possible. The company recognizes the importance of all 17 SDGs. However, we set several priority areas where Mechel can contribute the most: Goal 3 (Good health and well-being), Goal 8 (Decent work and economic growth), Goal 9 (Industry, innovation and infrastructure), Goal 12 (Responsible consumption and production), and Goal 13 (Climate action).

In determining the approach and key areas of activity, the company seeks to comply with the principles of the UN Global Compact regarding human rights, labor relations, environment protection and anticorruption.
