Krastsvetmet wins “Green Development — Evolution Awards 2014”

Krastsvetmet has won the silver prize for “Best integrated solution in the field of green technologies” at the Green Development — Evolution Awards 2014. The contest was held by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation from 10/13/2014 till 11/14/2014. Participating companies were evaluated in five categories, to recognize environmental achievements of sustainable development in the Russian Federation.

Sustainable development is one of the most common organizing principles of resource efficient and cleaner production, supported by the international community. It is achieved by developing efficient environmental regulations, and new resource-saving, environmentally safe technologies.

Environmental protection at all stages of production is one of Krastsvetmet’s top priorities. The plant’s environmental management system, involving regulations based on “the best available technologies” principle (Federal Law № 219-FZ), provides an integrated approach for minimizing damage to the environment and improving the living conditions for the local population.
