We recognize the importance of regions and local communities’ development, so we try to increase the involvement of stakeholders and assess the impact of our activities on the environment and health of local communities.
Interaction with local communities
In order to promote regional development, we are actively cooperating with local authorities through Memorandums of cooperation in the field of socio-economic development and provide access to the inaccessible and essential goods and services in these regions.
In Kyzylorda region, in accordance with the provisions of the Memorandum of Understanding, KMG sells natural gas at a discounted price for the inhabitants of the region. KOA has concluded a Memorandum of Understanding with the akimat of Aktobe region on cooperation for stabilization of production processes to ensure labor rights and employability of workers. MMG has implemented a social project of the municipal value "Contribution to the development of Mangystau region: achieving better results with the help of liability and foreign direct investment".
Commissions on labor safety, health and environmental protection are operating on a regular basis which are working together with the local trade unions to ensure the compliance with the requirements of labor protection, prevent occupational diseases and accidents at work, as well as to check the working conditions at work locations.
Executives of KMG and its SDEs - women are members of the Association of Business Women of Kazakhstan.
Before the start of new projects and facilities, on a mandatory basis we carry out a complex of measures in the framework of environmental impact assessment (EIA), aimed at informing the public about the proposed operations and their possible impact, in order to identify public opinion and take it into account in the process of impact assessment. We provide access to all stakeholders to the draft EIA, acceptance and registration of comments and suggestions. The materials are posted on the websites of local authorities and mass media, in order to familiarize the public with the planned activities. Comments and feedback can also be sent to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
