Graphite enterprise "Development of Pobuzhzhia" has allocated more than UAH 1.2 million for community development in Kirovohrad region
On June 7, 2021, a memorandum on socio-economic development was signed between the Petrivka village council and the Limited Liability Company "DEVELOPMENT OF POBUZHZHIA".
The documents were signed by Svitlana Oleksandrivna Tylyk, the head of the Petrivka village, and Valery Volodymyrovych Medvedovsky, the director of the Limited Liability Company "POZUZHZHIA DEVELOPMENT".
"Responsible business is not only a business that takes care of its employees, but also one that becomes part of the local community and takes care of it," Valery Medvedovsky said in a comment. "Social agreement is a great way to articulate our intentions, among other things. We are ready to invest in the community, to help, to develop it and to grow together with it. We have serious intentions.
In addition, a social agreement is something that will allow the community to determine for itself where it needs these funds: we do not impose anything – no one knows better than the community itself where it needs additional funds for development. It can be medicine, school needs, renovations and repairs – anything that people need now.
The well-being of the people we live and work with is one of the priorities of our work here. Therefore, we believe that helping the Petrivka community is not only our desire, but also our duty as conscious entrepreneurs."
In 2019, ROZVYTOK POBUZHZHIA LLC received a special permit with a total area of 71.2 hectares for subsoil use, namely for the extraction of graphite ores as raw materials for the production of all brands of commercial graphite at the Balakhiv deposit. The field is expected to be developed within 20 years. The company's management plans to create a highly efficient mining company that will pay taxes to the community budget and promote the development of settlements in our territorial community. The staff will be formed out of the local population.
