Gazprom monitors customer satisfaction on a regular basis and uses two independent methods. The first one is based on the analysis of survey data from Gazprom’s customers across all lines of business. The second one is the calculation of the customer satisfaction index for gas business (including gas motor fuel business segment) and power generation business. Over 52,000 customers were interviewed to calculate the indicators.
In 2021, the average customer satisfaction index based on the first method stood at 9.39 (using a 10-point scale for the first time). The monitoring results in 2022 will be summed up after the Gazprom Group entities report on performance of their Quality Management Systems (QMS) in 2023.
The Gazprom Group also calculated STI2 to provide customer satisfaction indices for various businesses. All of them exceeded the target values.
To build a positive public image and strong reputation, PJSC Gazprom develops the Gazprom Group’s corporate and retail brands both in the Russian Federation and abroad. As of the end of 2022, PJSC Gazprom owns about 1,000 trademarks protecting the Company’s key brands around the world, with more than 100 trademarks operating across Russia.
