Water, chemical workshop, boiler, heating.
Steam goes to turbine, rotation, generator.
Electric workshop, connection –
Megawatts go to the system.
Not everybody knows this process,
Only energy specialists do,
Those who care about warmth and light!
Who can proudly say – energy is my job.

Basic principles of sustainable development and social responsibility

We combine the traditions accumulated by generations of our predecessors and the strive to change in line with the imperative of our time. We operate equipment commissioned decades ago and introduce state-of-the-art technology to gain in strength. We are working to be more efficient and take our rightful place in the market. Only this will allow us to update generating capacities and provide the best conditions for our team. Nonetheless, the main goal remains unchanged for power engineers of all time: reliable and uninterrupted power supply to consumers.

Such work can only be built on the principles of a responsible attitude of business towards people, the environment and society. Our core corporate values aimed to ensure the sustainable development of the company stem from the responsible attitude. Following the principles of openness and transparency we conduct an open and honest exchange of information with all the stakeholders.

Analysis of the possible impact of climate-related risks and opportunities on the activities of OGK-2

Nowadays, the financial statements of companies cannot be a source of comprehensive information for investors. Therefore, companies need to increase the amount of disclosed non-financial information in order to increase the transparency of their activities and increase investment attractiveness. Non-financial disclosure requirements applicable to reporting are based on the disclosure standards. One of the important factors attracting the attention of investors is the disclosure of impact of climate-related risks on the activities of the Company.
