Environmental Policy (PDF, 30.2 KB)

Certificates of compliance of Gazprom’s Environmental Management System with ISO 14001:2015 standard (RAR, 10.9 MB)

In 1995, Gazprom became the first oil and gas company in Russia to adopt an Environmental Policy.

Governance

The Environmental Management System (EMS) is the mainstay of Gazprom’s Environmental Policy (the fundamental document regulating the Company’s environmental activities).

In 2015, the revised Environmental Policy was approved by the Gazprom Management Committee’s Resolution. The necessity for revision arose in light of the Company’s expanding scope of activities and geographic reach and increasing business diversification, as well as the changes in the national environmental legislation. The new Environmental Policy outlines the additional responsibilities for ensuring environmental safety during hydrocarbon development operations on the continental shelf and in the Russian Arctic, as well as for minimizing adverse environmental impacts, including impacts on highly vulnerable and specially protected natural areas.

Gazprom’s EMS encompasses the structural units of the Company’s Administration, 37 wholly-owned subsidiaries engaged in core activities, the Environmental Inspectorate of Gazprom, and Gazprom’s Corporate R&D Center for environmental safety and energy efficiency within Gazprom VNIIGAZ.

Performance

In 2020, the environmental expenses of the Gazprom Group amounted to RUB 49.12 billion.

Gazprom’s Working Group for EMS Improvement is a permanent body responsible for ensuring a comprehensive approach to and coordination of environmental management efforts across the Company’s structural units.

Gazprom takes appropriate measures to continuously improve its environmental performance.
