NOVATEK's Board of Directors Approved Environmental Targets for the Period up to 2030
"NOVATEK fully subscribes to the tenets outlined in the Paris Climate Agreement, which was subsequently adopted by the Russian Federation in September 2019,” noted NOVATEK’s Deputy Chairman of the Management Board Mark Gyetvay. “The present level of our greenhouse gas emissions per barrel of production is already among the lowest globally due to the use of state-of-the-art technologies and a high share of natural gas in the Company's hydrocarbon production. We set ambitious targets that will contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to meet global climate change initiatives, as well providing affordable, secure and sustainable, clean-burning natural gas to our customers for many decades”.
