Rational use of land
The Company fulfils all of its obligations to rehabilitate disturbed lands, takes the necessary steps to preserve land resources, preventing their pollution and degradation, and is guided by the principle of rational land use.
In the course of mining activities, land at the sites of formerly used mineral deposits and industrial waste landfills goes through a recovery stage and is then used in crop rotation or handed over to become forest land. Over the last 5 years NLMK Group has recovered almost 126 hectares of disturbed land, which is now used in crop rotation or has become forest land.
Provisions for land reclamation measures are made at early design stages and implemented in line with the programmes and schedules approved at NLMK Group companies.
