The Company received Platinum prizes:

In 2021, the Company rebuilt its digital ecosystem in order to enhance the speed and quality of communication with customers, partners, investors, local communities, and other important audiences. The project broadened the outreach of communications by a factor of 19, with the core of community audiences reaching 44%.
The Gold prize was awarded in the Print Media nomination for NLMK’s corporate calendar. The calendar features photos of steel taken in the microstructural analysis lab of NLMK’s R&D Centre using a Mira scanning electron microscope, one-of-a-kind in Russia, and a Scios 2 DualBeam ion beam scanning electron microscope. The photos, augmented up to 500,000x, are high-precision images of the coatings and microstructures of NLMK steels that look like true works of art. There are images of the microstructure of IF steel for extra-deep drawing, the fine structure of high-strength zinc-aluminium-magnesium coating, the structure of ultra-fine-grain steel and steel with antibacterial coating, and others. The calendar serves to highlight the importance of developing technologies that enable the Company to create new products.
