The Company implements an environmental policy that is aimed at creating safe conditions for organising and carrying out export-import deliveries of NFC products in the Russian Federation and abroad to prevent any adverse impacts on the environment.

JSC Techsnabexport’s environmental policy has been shaped in accordance with the provisions of the ROSATOM Environmental Policy as based on the following principles:

  • integrated solution to ecological safety issues in the field of NFC, considering multifaceted safety factors at the local, regional, federal, and international levels based on the current risk analysis and management concepts;
  • transparency of JSC Techsnabexport activities in order to make NFC product vendors and transportation and logistics service providers aware of significant environmental aspects;
  • monitoring of NFC vendors and transportation and logistics service providers’ activities associated with significant environmental aspects of the NFC product delivery management chain;
  • ensuring strict observance of norms and requirements in the field of nuclear and radiation safety, along with environmental protection as a whole;
  • placing priority on preventative measures to reduce the risk of adverse environmental impacts;
  • maintaining a high level of preparedness for the elimination of emergency consequences, which may result in adverse impacts on the environment; and
  • continuous interaction with state regulatory authorities and non-governmental environmentalist organisations.

The Company’s Environmental Policy focuses on:

  • a comprehensive analysis of environmental aspects of the activities associated with the deliveries of NFC products;
  • the reduction of risks of adverse impacts on the environment when organising export-import NFC product deliveries;
  • the enhancement of EMS as per the standard DIN EN ISO 14001:2009;
  • the improvement of the ecological knowledge and ecological culture of the staff of JSC Techsnabexport and its affiliates and subsidiaries; and
  • interaction with non-governmental environmentalist organisations, including the charitable support of environmental programmes and projects.

Regarding the Environmental Policy, the Company has developed a system of goals, objectives, and indicators for 2012–2014. The system is aimed at minimising the risks of environmental impacts during nuclear material transport, as well as at developing a programme for the monitoring of threats, risks, and environmental aspects, including a conformance analysis, a fragment of which is provided in the table below.
