Monitoring and implementation of initiatives aimed at preserving biodiversity are significant aspects of the environmental protection activities of the Company. Measures to manage the impact on biological resources are voluntarily taken, as the production assets of Uralchem do not operate in specially protected natural areas or adjacent areas.
Within the framework of the Uralchem ESG Strategy until 2025, an assessment of biodiversity will be conducted to develop measures for preserving plant and animal species in regions where the Company operates. Preparatory work was carried out in 2022 to achieve this goal.
To protect and preserve biodiversity in the reporting year, the Company’s main areas of activity were compensatory measures for stocking water bodies, aimed at releasing young sturgeon into the reservoirs, as well as participation in public events in the regions of operation to green the territories.
