MOSCOW, December 11 (Itar-Tass) — Specialists of Norilsk Nickel have held a series of meetings in Europe with representatives of the foreign investment community. During the recent week they discussed in Helsinki, Stockholm, The Hague, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Zurich and London with investors and independent advisory agencies the company’s plans for the protection of the environment and its sustainable development.
Norilsk Nickel is the world’s largest producer of nickel and palladium and one of the leading producers of platinum and copper. It also produces various by-products, such as cobalt, rhodium, silver, gold, iridium, ruthenium, selenium, tellurium and sulphur. The Group is involved in prospecting, exploration, extraction, refining and metallurgical processing of minerals, as well as in production, marketing and sale of base and precious metals. Norilsk Nickel’s production facilities are located on three continents and in five countries: Russia, Australia, Botswana, Finland, and South Africa. The main Russian production units are vertically integrated and include: the Polar Division (the Taimyr Peninsula); the Kola Mining and Metallurgical Company (Kola MMC).
The Norilsk Nickel press service told Itar-Tass that “one of the most discussed topics was the implementation of the project for the reduction of sulphur dioxide emissions in the company’s Polar Division (Taimyr Peninsula). Representatives of the Russian metallurgical holding reported about the plans to build two shops for sulphur extraction from off-gases at the Medny and Nadezhdinsky metallurgical plants located in trans-polar Norilsk in the Krasnoyarsk Territory.”
In addition, the meetings participants discussed the experience of Norilsk Nickel in the sphere of corporate social responsibility. The Norilsk Nickel Mining and Metallurgical Company (MMC) is one of the leaders in the sphere of openness and transparency that implements the principles of social responsibility.
