Prospects for MTS’s CSR Program Development

Social, environmental and economic development will remain the focus of MTS’s CSR and sustainable development efforts over the medium term.

MTS conducted a survey of employees and subscribers on inclusivity, which showed the importance of inclusive social programs, particularly educational ones: 57% of the respondents believe that by implementing corporate inclusive programs, MTS will strengthen its brand’s positive image.

During the first stage of the updated CSR strategy implementation, the Company will focus on developing inclusive programs, educational technologies, environmental initiatives and using innovations to address social issues in its regions of operation.

The results of these projects will be assessed based, among others, against the following UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):

goal 10. Reduced Inequalities

goal 4. Quality Education

goal 12. Responsible Consumption and Production

goal 9. Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
