As a large company, we consider ourselves responsible towards protecting biodiversity and local species and their habitats. EVRAZ assesses biodiversity related impacts during all stages of implementing mining and steel-making projects. EVRAZ assets are not located in protected natural areas or territories with a high biodiversity value. Also, our activities do not directly impact biodiversity.
Our activities are geared towards promoting a rational and prudent attitude towards biodiversity and enhancing the living environments of our employees. We also actively engage with local communities on biodiversity related issues.
In 2020 EVRAZ performed the following activities related to biodiversity preservation:
- rehabilitating disturbed land and landscaping.
- restoring aquatic biodiversity.
