Waste from metal production is stored at tailings storage facilities (TSF). EVRAZ owns three operating TSF, located at EVRAZ ZSMK and EVRAZ KGOK. The Group considers the safety of TSF to be a top priority, as their operation entails significant environmental risks. We have elaborated a dam safety management system that ensures compliance with applicable legislation and covers all stages of the process. The TSF service life comprises design, construction, operation, and closure. We also carry out continual safety monitoring procedures and our TSF are regularly audited by both internal and external specialists, as well as inspectors from regulatory bodies.
EVRAZ has an Environmental Management System (EMS) in place, which ensures that environmental risks are mitigated and that all regulatory requirements are met. The EMS also incorporates environmental and social impact assessments, environmental due diligence, and the management of environmental projects.
