Biodiversity conservation

We run a range of programmes aimed at preserving biodiversity and conserving wildlife and plant habitats and ecosystems. Where some impact is inevitable, we strive to mitigate and offset this.

Our approach to biodiversity management is set out in our “Standard for Biodiversity Conservation”. From the early stages of a project, we evaluate the surrounding wildlife in order to develop appropriate conservation plans. As part of biodiversity’ monitoring and assessment in Bodaibo region we are cooperating with Vitim state nature reserve.

Our conservation initiatives include:

  • cooperating on relevant issues with regional institutions and government agencies on the biodiversity evaluation
  • compensation programs for damage to aquatic wildlife (introducing valuable fish species into the local rivers)
  • planting young trees

Polyus responds to the results of the environmental impact assessment to ensure preservation of territories where it is critical to maintain biodiversity (animal and bird migration paths, wintering and breeding grounds, etc.).

We do not develop mineral deposits in world heritage sites and nature reserves protected by the regional or federal government. We also actively prohibits poaching by our employees and contractors [in nature reserves and] in the areas adjacent to the Company’s operations.
