External social policy priorities

2018 RESULTS

Total expenses on external social support in all areas amounted to around RUB 9 billion.

Young LUKOIL specialists held over 190 volunteer events.

LUKOIL became a participant of the AllRussian cultural and educational project “Talents of the Arctic. Children".

A new grant project “Refuel in Sport” was established.


We recognize the importance of interacting on a regular basis with the residents of the regions in which LUKOIL entities operate. Our social policy has been developed in accordance with the principles of constructive cooperation and responsible partnership, and we have also established priorities for charity and sponsorship activities.

Owing to LUKOIL’s support, hundreds of social projects are executed each year in Russia and abroad.

Our social support of the regions of production helps improve the living standards of local people where we work. Our joint projects with local authorities and social and municipal organizations have resulted in the building and renovation of kindergartens, schools, sports facilities, medical centers, hospitals, cultural institutions, and other socially signifcant facilities. The external social policy focuses on the interests of territories and residents, and is carried out using various mechanisms:

  • PARTNERSHIPS WITH AUTHORITIES AS PART OF COOPERATION AGREEMENTS WITH CONSTITUENT ENTITIES OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION
  • an annual Social and Cultural Projects Competition in the Russian Federation for a wide range of social and municipal organizations in Russia
  • charity projects and programs, targeted support
  • corporate volunteering
  • sponsorship

For a quarter of a century our priority areas of social activity have remained unchanged and are the same for all the regions and countries in which LUKOIL Group entities operate; some programs and regional projects are long term in nature. Programs and projects are financed both by LUKOIL Charity Fund (hereinafter, the "LUKOIL CF," the "Fund") and directly by LUKOIL Group entities.

In 2018, external social support expenses in all areas amounted to around RUB 9 billion, including charitable social programs and events held under 27 cooperation agreements with Russian constituent entities
