OUR CONTRIBUTION TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
Sustainable development of ASTARTA is ensured through implementation of corporate social responsibility policies.

As part of the strategy, ASTARTA reaffirms its commitment to the principles of transparency and accountability in its daily activities and focuses its efforts on achieving sustainable leadership.
We support ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact in the areas of human rights, labor relations, environmental protection and counteraction to corruption and extend our responsibility.
The UN Summit on Sustainable Development in September 2015 adopted the Agenda for the period up to 2030, including identification of 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
