Commenting on the Report, Benedikt Sobotka, ERG’s CEO, said: “Last year, we continued to embed our 2025 Strategy, placing particular focus on organisational transformation, meeting the expectations of our stakeholders, digital technology, and the enhancement of our financial position. Our key priorities are ensuring the health and safety of our people and building on our existing efforts to enhance our operational and financial resilience, which is particularly important against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic.” 

Looking ahead, ERG’s immediate priority remains keeping its employees and local communities safe whilst ensuring operational continuity and resilience. This is overseen by ERG’s dedicated Anti-Crisis Control Committee. Contributing to local efforts to address COVID-19 is central to ERG’s corporate mission. In 2020, in Kazakhstan alone, ERG committed more than US$10 million to the creation of a national foundation aimed at minimising the socio-economic impact of the outbreak and contributed US$230,000 to the fight against the virus in Nur-Sultan1. The Group has been continuously committing resources to this cause during 2020. 

Through its assets in Kazakhstan as well as Metalkol RTR and BAMIN, the Group is wellpositioned to play an important role in facilitating the transition to a low-carbon economy as well as capitalising on future opportunities and growth in the aftermath of the pandemic.
