NLMK companies only withdraw a small proportion of their water from external sources (less than 4% of the Group’s total water consumption). Maintaining the same low level of fresh water intake as production volumes grow is an important objective for NLMK Group. For industrial water supplies, NLMK Group companies use water from surface water bodies, underground sources, and rainfall.
