Gazprom Neft works with contractors to support and enhance nature conservation initiatives through training, consulting and campaigning, in order to reduce the environmental footprint in areas where the company operates.
The environmental protection, health and safety at work and civil defence committee have specified additional requirements for nature conservation at new territory developments in order to minimise environmental impact. The Company aims to reduce impact on the surrounding area by not operating in protected natural environments, specifically UNESCO natural heritage sites and their protection zones, and aims to preserve migratory routes for animals.
Company employees and contractors are prohibited from hunting and fishing in areas where the Gazprom Neft operates. These stipulations are formalised in contracts that apply throughout the Company.
