Our sustainability priorities

Nornickel’s plan to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals Agenda 2030 focuses on social inclusion, environmental consciousness, sustainable business growth, and responsible business practices. Our environmental priorities are guided by our strong commitment to minimizing the impact of our operations on water, air and land, coupled with efficient waste management and a responsible approach to tailings. For social initiatives we focus on diversity, inclusion, and strengthening our long-lasting partnerships with local communities in the regions in which we operate, including the indigenous people of Taymyr and Zabaikalye impacted by our business activities.
