The climate change is a major challenge for mankind. All industries today are forced to create sustainable business models, implement green technologies based on renewable energies throughout their value chain.

We are proud to contribute to this progress and to speed up transformation of the energy sector.

Our history is inseparably linked to the expansion of the Eurasian oil, gas, chemical and petrochemical industries in the past 30 years. These sectors have been changing tremendously, turning towards decarbonization and sustainability goals. We foresaw this trend long before the Paris Climate Agreement or the European Green Deal became realities. The Rating for Environmental Transparency of Eurasian oil and gas companies, which our shareholding company Creon Capital started jointly with WWF in 2014, set an industry-wide benchmark and challenges oil companies to do more for good.

It is of utmost importance to perceive the European Green Deal as an Eurasian project, uniting markets in Europe and Eurasia, making best use of their respective competitive advantages.
