Stakeholder Engagement

On November 23, 2011, Ersai held the second sustainability meeting with potential vendors and subcontractors to be involved in a shared programme of initiatives targeted at the development of host communities.

This encounter had the aim of nurturing good relations and improving the climate of long-term mutual understanding and trust. During the meeting Ersai brought its sustainability principles and plan to the attention of the vendors and subcontractors, with a particular focus on projects and social initiatives for potential partnership. As a result of this campaign, a number of vendors such as CIS and RBG began to be more proactive in the sustainable development of the region by investing directly in social initiatives: CIS participated in the cultural development of the Kuryk region by supporting the enhancement of music facilities at the Kuryk Palace of Culture and RBG Kazakhstan sponsored the Junior Basketball League.
