Environmental Protection
MMK carries out its production activities in accordance both with Russian environment protection laws
as well as the ISO 14001:2004 international standard.
MMK views the minimization of its impact on the environment as a strategic goal and a key element of
the Company’s long-term, sustainable growth.
In 2011, MMK’s Environmental programme produced the following positive results:
gross pollutant emissions into the atmosphere were reduced by 0.35 thousand tonnes (0.2 %) to
220.5 thousand tonnes;
emissions of iron, manganese and fluoride into water bodies were reduced, respectively, by 4.8
tonnes (14 %), 3.1 tonnes (16.9 %) and 124.4 tonnes (31.4 %);
the volume of waste in the sintering division increased by 5 % to 2.29 million tonnes;
the share of recycled water amounted to 97.5 % of total water consumption for industrial purposes.
MMK does not specially monitor the emission of ozone-depleting substances produced in its operations.
