For the Children of Russia
Supporting educational programmes (from kindergarten to university) and physical education.
Since 2003, PhosAgro has been implementing a unique multistage programme to support education called Children of Russia: Education, Health and Spirituality (DROZD). The programme combines internal and external social projects in a single platform covering all levels of education, from preschool to higher professional education, with an opportunity for graduates to find employment with the Group’s subsidiaries.
Our Precious Cities
Creation of modern infrastructure in the cities where we operate.
The main goal of PhosAgro's Our Precious Cities programme, which we have been implementing since 2003, is to create an excellent urban environment for our sustainable development. To achieve this goal, we have collaborated with regional and local authorities, charitable foundations and public organisations, and we have also established non-profit organisations of our own.
BigWood Ski Resort
The highest-altitude resort in north-west Russia.
As part of its public–private partnership with the Government of the Murmansk Region, PhosAgro is implementing a tourism cluster development project in Kirovsk. The goal is the social and economic development of the Kirovsk–Apatity region and the creation of a comfortable living environment.
Unique interactive exhibitions on business and the history of science.
Since 2015, PhosAgro has been carrying out the comprehensive reconstruction and modernisation of its factory museums, which are receiving high-tech equipment and, as a result, becoming cultural and educational centres for local residents and tourists. There are also numerous reconstruction projects for various urban monuments, including those dedicated to combat veterans, as well as upgrade works taking place on surrounding areas.
Support for pensioners, disabled children and other vulnerable population groups.
We have been providing targeted special-needs assistance for vulnerable groups since 2003. There is a social and charitable committee within each of PhosAgro Group's subsidiaries, which reviews requests from people in need. In addition, we partner with the In the Name of Good charitable foundation (Vologda Oblast), which provides financial support to children with disabilities who need urgent treatment.
Construction of churches at factories, assisting with religious pilgrimages.
PhosAgro supports the restoration and construction of Orthodox shrines, both in Russia and abroad. In addition, we are reviving the tradition of building factory churches that existed in Russia before the revolution. The programme is implemented in partnership with the Russian Orthodox Church, eparchies and Orthodox churches.
Promotion of sports
Faster, higher, stronger! Since 2012, PhosAgro has been supporting non-profit organisations focused on the development of sports, tourism and a healthy lifestyle. The Russian Rhythmic Gymnastics Federation, the Russian Chess Federation, support for other programmes, the Champion Public Foundation for the Support and Development of Sports, the Cross-Country Ski Federation of Russia and other sports organisations in Russia.
The creation of a comfortable environment for self-employment and small-business development. To manage this project, an autonomous non-commercial organisation called the Khibiny Business Development Centre was established, which acts as a small-business development and support operator. The project is part of PhosAgro's public–private partnership with the municipality and regional authorities.
