One of the most pressing problems of our time – climate change – is associated with the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. To reduce the impact on the environment, the company implements a set of environmental programs at all levels of production activities.
The key principle guiding JSC Gazpromneft MZSM’s activities in the oil production, treatment, and transportation process is sustainable development, which entails accelerating economic growth while prioritizing issues such as labor protection, industrial and environmental safety, and minimizing negative environmental impacts. JSC Gazpromneft MZSM is fully aware of its social obligation to maintain a good environmental state in the areas where it operates. The most pressing issues for JSC Gazpromneft MZSM are environmental friendliness and employee/population health in the Company’s presence areas.
The administration of JSC Gazpromneft MZSM is dedicated to the philosophy of putting the lives and health of its employees first. All required efforts are made during operations to improve the reliability of industrial equipment and to integrate contemporary progressive technologies. JSC Gazpromneft MZSM has implemented a system for occupational, industrial, fire, environmental, and emergency prevention that meets the requirements of the ISO 14001 international standard in order to fulfill the above top priorities. Because of this approach, the business HSE Policy is efficiently applied.
In 2018, the Company approved the Policy on health protection, industrial safety, environmental control, and social responsibility for the prevention, elimination, and reduction of risks to an acceptable level, as well as for continuous improvements in the field of labor protection, provision of industrial and ecological safety. The Short Term Program of Measures on Environment Protection and Rehabilitation for the Period 2019-2020 and the Long Term Program of Measures on Environment Protection and Rehabilitation for the Period 2020-2021 were developed and implemented within the Company to implement the Policy Targets related to ecological safety.
The Programs include a system of measures for environmental preservation, improvement, and rehabilitation, as well as its parts and components, as well as sound environmental management, environmental condition control, ecological education and administration, and environmental information sharing with locals. Ecological programs were created based on long-term and short-term environmental protection plans.
