6. Our Responsibility to the Planet

Gazprom respects the human right to a healthy environment with clean water, fresh air, and biological diversity and takes steps to preserve access to the natural resources of the Earth for the current and future generations.

As an environmentally sustainable power source, natural gas plays an important role in supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris climate accord, contributing to the low-carbon economy development in Russia and the countries that import Russian gas.

Gazprom implements the best available technologies (BAT) and pays close attention to improving energy efficiency, implementing large-scale water treatment initiatives, reducing air emissions and the generation and dumping of production and consumption waste, along with remediating land and restoring biodiversity.
