RUSAL updates the Environmental Policy

Moscow, 27 October 2022 – RUSAL, a leading global aluminium producer, approved its updated corporate Environmental Policy.

“In 2022, the Board of Directors of RUSAL signed off a number of important policies and standards related to sustainable development. These are the biodiversity policy, the waste management strategy and the health and safety strategy. The updated corporate Environmental Policy is one of the most important among them. It defines our efforts and development in such an important direction as reducing the impact on the environment and improving the quality of life in the cities of Company’s responsibility. In addition, the updated Environmental Policy of RUSAL is now based on global sustainable development principles and the corporate ESG-strategy adopted this year. We are fully aware of our responsibility towards the society and our team members and, despite unprecedented external challenges, we will achieve the goal set out in the Environmental Policy,” commented Evgenii Nikitin, General Director of RUSAL.
