SOCAR Polymer attaches particular importance to the environmental component of the project. SOCAR Polymer’s plants will be built on the basis of acceptable environmental impact principles and be operated under proven process technologies. SOCAR Polymer is interested in creating a project of international standing, meeting all ecological requirements. We use the environmental assessment process to enhance our project by helping prevent, minimize, mitigate or compensate any adverse environmental or social impact. Our approach to sustainability starts with running a safe, efficient, responsible and profitable business.

Constructive engagement and continuous dialogue with stakeholders are an essential part of good business practices and corporate responsibility and are key to the success of any complex project such as SOCAR Polymer. Therefore, SOCAR Polymer has held a meeting with stakeholders as part of the stakeholder engagement activities framework with view to build and maintain positive relationships with stakeholders in all the development aspects. The meeting held early in October 2018 was attended by the representatives of Sumgayit executive authorities, neighbouring companies and local community. The English translation of the presentation given at the meeting can be viewed here (27 slides, 7.1 MB, .pdf).
