Nornickel's Board has discussed the clean-up operation at CHPP-3
Moscow, July 29, 2020 - The Board of Nornickel met yesterday to discuss various matters relating to the oil spill and other environmental issues.
The Board commended management on the substantial progress that has been made in cleaning up the spill. It was updated on the work being done in the Environmental Task Team and the utilisation of ERM to undertake an independent assessment of the spill and related matters.
The Board also discussed the recent management changes to improve the focus on and culture towards environmental affairs. Further measures to strengthen the team are planned shortly. The Board commended the introduction of environmental KPI's for Nornickel staff and the leadership of the new risk committee by the company's President, Vladimir Potanin.
On the question of Nornickel head office, it was noted that the management board is and would continue to spend substantial amounts of time in Norilsk, and Norilsk would be considered the «centre of gravity» until its environmental affairs could be regarded as world class.
