Environmental Stewardship

Our main hydropower production facilities are located in Siberia. Almost two thirds of their energy production depend on the water flow of the Angara, the sole river flowing out from Lake Baikal – the world’s oldest, largest and deepest freshwater lake. Being reliant on the lake, we recognize we have a responsibility to create partnerships and coalitions to protect Baikal and its unique biodiversity, as well as our other regions of operation. These partnership initiatives, combined with our commitment to reduce our impact on water resources and cut levels of waste, comprise our broader Environmental Stewardship Programme contributing to UN SDGs 6, 12 and 15.


By 2030, eliminate untreated wastewater discharge generated by the Power segment

By 2030, minimise non-production water losses through technological optimisation

By 2024, develop programmes and action plans for biodiversity conservation for pilot facilities (for three existing operational facilities in each segment)

By 2030, develop programmes and action plans for biodiversity conservation for the Group’s facilities with significant biodiversity risks
