Public Assurance Statement on the Public Annual Report of JSC Techsnabexport for 2013

Background

The management of JSC Techsnabexport (hereinafter referred to as “the Company”) suggested that we verify the 2013 Public Annual Report of the Company (hereinafter referred to as “the Report”) in terms of the completeness and materiality of the information it discloses and assess the management actions to respond to the stakeholders’ recommendations. For this purpose, we were given an opportunity to take part in the discussion of the draft Report Concept (October–November 2013), which was formatted as a questionnaire and public consultations (hereinafter referred to as “the Consultations”) on the draft Report (29 April 2014), and then to freely express our opinion on the issues discussed.

Draft Report assessment procedure

Our statement is based on the review of two revisions of the Report: the draft, which was sent to us in advance and was presented at the consultations, as well as the final revision. Our statement is also based on the analysis of the information received over the course of the Consultations (a presentation, records, comments incorporation table).

The verification of factual data provided in the Report is not subject to public assurance.

Our work results are formatted as this Public Assurance Statement, which contains judgments that we unanimously agreed upon. We did not receive any reward for effort or time spent on this work.

Assessments, comments, and recommendations

We would like to especially note the Company’s effort to engage a broad circle of stakeholders, including the Company’s contractors among the largest foreign companies, in the Report drafting process, particularly at the stage where the Concept was being discussed. As in previous reporting efforts, the Company stands out among other nuclear industry entities by this criterion.

We are unanimous in a positive assessment of the Report. The Company has written an informative and well-structured document that meets our expectations. The historical information, which presents an organised and detailed overview of both the Company’s history and chronology of its entrance into the global uranium market, as well as the Company’s role in the consolidation of industrial assets essential for the nuclear industry, is a distinct merit of the Report covering the year, which is also the year of the Company’s semicentennial. The 2013 results of the Company, including financial and economic ones, as well as its sustainable development activities, are explicitly presented. In our opinion, the theme, which is recognised by the Company management and stakeholders as the priority, i.e. “HEU-LEU Programme as a unique project of the multilateral nuclear cooperation: Lessons and outcomes”, is covered at length.

We deem it necessary to emphasise that the Company management demonstrated an affirmative approach in its interaction with the stakeholders in the course of the Report drafting, as well as high quality and creativity in arranging the Consultations.

We would like to especially note the Company’s effort to engage a broad circle of stakeholders, including the Company’s contractors among the largest foreign companies, in the Report drafting process, particularly at the stage where the Concept was being discussed. As in previous reporting efforts, the Company stands out among other nuclear industry entities by this criterion.

Based on the analysis done, we have made the following conclusions.

Materiality of the information

The Report covers all substantive and essential topics for the stakeholders in terms of both the key activities and the social and environmental aspects of sustainable development. The Report sections of particular interest are those that disclose publicly significant aspects of the Company’s activities, contracting and sales from the regional viewpoint, transportation and logistic support, support of environmental projects and programmes, management system and risk management development, and human resource management.

Completeness of the information

In our view, the information in the Report is provided in the scope necessary for the stakeholders to gain deep insight into the current state and development prospects of the Company. The engagement of an independent auditor to assure the declared information disclosure level (GRI B+, version G3.1) and its credibility merits approval.

The Company’s response to stakeholder recommendations

The Company took note of stakeholder recommendations, analysed them, and took account of them in the final revision of the Report. Amendments were made to some Report sections, such as “The Company in the nuclear industry”, “Analytical support of ROSATOM’s activities . . .”, “Contracting and sales”, and “Economic impact”.

Therefore, the Company demonstrated its positive, affirmative attitude to stakeholder recommendations.

Noting the traditionally high quality of the Company interaction with the stakeholders, we would like to express our hope that the experience gained will be used to the full extent in future activities in the field of communications, the enhancement of management tools, and the development of the corporate culture.
