The parties discussed the possibility of joint implementation of projects in the environmental direction, among which an important place is given to the principles of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance — Ecology, Society and Management). This is a new approach to evaluating the companies that fully complies with UN principles of sustainable development and takes into account not only financial indicators, but also environmental impact, social responsibility and quality of management.

  4. They considered the possibility of holding a Round table/foresight with the participation of foreign partners to discuss issues related to the Caspian Sea.
  5. They have planned trainings and seminars on ESG principles for employees to develop their skills and knowledge in sustainable development field.
