To support Russian and international initiatives and associations advocating active actions to prevent climate change
In 2016, RUSAL introduced a new 2025 strategy focused on cutting greenhouse gas emissions
- To ensure that at least 95% of electricity purchased by aluminium smelters comes from hydroelectric power plants and other carbon-free power generating;
- To reduce direct specific greenhouse gas emissions by 15% compared to 2014 at reduction processes at the existing aluminium smelters;
- To reduce direct specific greenhouse gas emissions by 10% compared to 2014 at the existing alumina refineries;
- To reduce the specific aluminium smelters power consumption by 7% as compared to 2011;
- To achieve the average level of specific direct and indirect energy related greenhouse gas emissions from reduction processes at the aluminium smelters not exceeding 2.7 t of CO2e/t Al1;
- To use internal carbon prices when making strategic and investment decisions starting from 2017;
- To support Russian and international initiatives and associations advocating active actions to prevent climate change and supporting carbon prices as long as they are aligned with the strategic goals of the company.
Forests protection initiatives
The Company carries out diverse projects aimed at growing and protecting forests. For instance, ‘The Green Wave’ initiative was launched in 2017.
Unique inert anode production technology
Inert anode technology makes it possible to replace classic carbon anodes with inert non-consumable materials – ceramics or alloys.
Environmental monitoring of Lake Baikal
En+ Group conducted the second annual expedition of the ecological monitoring of Lake Baikal.
Environmental Projects Grant Competition
The first grant competition aimed at protecting Lake Baikal and aquatic ecosystems from adverse environmental impacts was held in 2020.
