PROGRESS was awarded with a commemorative medal from Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation, and the National Front as well as received a Thank You Letter from Igor Artamonov, Head of the Lipetsk Region, for the active support the Company provided to those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The letters emphasize our "active involvement into the charitable activities aimed at combating the spread of coronavirus infection and great contribution to the agricultural & industrial complex of the Lipetsk Region."
In summer 2020, PROGRESS donated products to the families who found themselves in a difficult situation due to the pandemic in different Russian regions – Lipetsk and Lipetsk Region, Moscow and Moscow Region, St Petersburg, Karachay-Cherkess and Chechen Republics.
In autumn, the Company bought and donated one of the most efficient state-of-the-art PCR workstations to the Skin & Venereal Disease Center in the Lipetsk Region. “Productivity increased 1.5-2 times, which is extremely important in today’s environment,” Lubov Sukhova, Chief Medical Officer at the Skin & Venereal Diseases Center and Honored Physician of the Russian Federation, admitted.
The charity and ESG initiatives are an integral and crucial part of PROGRESS. We were glad to help those who especially needed us and will continue our efforts.
