reduction in total air pollutant emissions
of total emissions by the Group are the least harmful for human health
million tonnes of СO2 equivalent is the year-on-year reduction in GHG emissions in 2017
To protect the atmosphere we continuously monitor and analyse air pollutant emissions by our subsidiaries and affiliates, review trends, and launch emission control initiatives while also encouraging the adoption of the best available solutions to ensure ambient air protection.
To reduce negative impact on the atmosphere we are using the following technologies:
In 2017, NOVATEK developed and adopted a corporate GHG Emission Management System compliant with ISO 14064–1:2007, Russian Government Resolution No. 504-R dated 2 April 2014, and the Guidelines for Calculating GHG Emissions as approved by Order of the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment No. 300 dated 30 June 2015. The System is included in the Framework Action Plan for the Year of Ecology in Russia in 2017 as approved by Russian Government Decree No. 1082-r dated 2 June 2016 (para. 192). The System includes a Corporate Standard setting the key principles of, and requirements to, GHG emission management.
The implementation of the system has greatly contributed to global climate change efforts. The Company has identified its GHG emission sources and put all of them, including minor ones, on our radar screen. The prime benefit of the system is high accuracy of data on GHG emissions. Using insights from the data, we are able to identify the most environmentally harmful facilities and minimize their footprint.
