Uralkali actively engages with local communities in various environmental campaigns.
Every year, as part of its continued efforts to increase environmental awareness in communities, the Company takes part in a number of projects:
As a result, we delivered nearly 300 tonnes of waste to the landfill and sent 3 tonnes of waste paper for recycling. Based on the results of the “Protection from Environmental Hazard Days”, the Company was awarded by the Berezniki town administration for the active participation in the 2015 campaign.
In 2015, at the Company’s request, juvenile sterlet (sturgeon) was bred in the territory of LLC Dobryansky Hatchery Centre. The total weight of more than 76 thousand juvenile fishes was about 230 kilograms.

OJSC “Uralkali” aims to be a leader in every aspect of its operations.
Health, safety and environment are key priorities for us and serve as a framework for every action and decision we make, irrespective of the type of activity.
We fully realise that no achievement or economic benefit may justify death of people or damage to human health and the environment of our planet. Each and every employee of OJSC “Uralkali” has the right to be provided with safe and comfortable conditions of labour.

To achieve these goals and to ensure the maximum compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, we must create a health, safety and environment management system based on established standards.
An efficient management and continuous improvement of the corporate health and safety culture will enable us to gain significant progress in preventing and/or mitigating HSE-related issues.
We strongly believe that a successful implementation of these efforts will create conditions for the sustainable development of OJSC “Uralkali”.
