Our approach

As a responsible member of the international community, we understand that taking a positive approach to social and environmental issues plays a major part in our operations.

We see social policy as core to our operations. By improving the quality of life of our employees and their families, we have a more efficient workforce. We also protect our own long-term interests by contributing to the sustainable development of the regions where we operate, and the wellbeing of their communities.

Our approach

As part of our environmental approach, we work to conserve biodiversity in Western Yakutia, our main production area.

We have already allocated over RUB 60 million to establish a protected territory, the Living Diamonds of Yakutia Natural Park. Under our ‘Restoration of Biological Diversity’ program we have introduced populations of beavers, musk oxen and buffalo into Yakutia. We are delighted to report that these animals have now settled in, and are clearly thriving in the environment of the Far North.
