Environmental Responsibility

Our environmental strategy is based on minimizing environmental impacts through planning and innovation, through complying with all environmental regulations and global best practices. We are maintaining or decreasing our carbon air and waste footprint. By training and developing our workforce to understand and apply our environmental procedures daily, we are privileging an environmental prevention work mindset instead of a reactive one.

Managing environmental impacts

It is unavoidable that our activity – generating electricity – implies environmental impacts on multiple levels: air emissions, waste production, water consumption, wastewater discharges, biodiversity (flora and fauna) effects, natural resources reduction, among others. Under this context, we seek continuously and in a dynamic way, to use innovative approaches to environmental management and to plan and implement suitable environmental management systems (EMS). Every EMS we develop is appropriate and tailored to the nature and scale of each project, promoting sustainable environmental performance and leading to improved environmental outcomes.

  • Pollution prevention and abatement
  • Biodiversity conservation
  • Sustainable natural resource responsible management
Environmental Polity

"Eliminate pollution by improving environmental performance"

The main type of fuel at Kramatorskteploenergo LLC is coal. In the process of coal burning, a large amount of ash and slag wastes is generated and transported by sluicing water to the ash sump for temporary storage. This accumulation of almost 25 thousand tons of waste can lead to contamination of the river and the nearby areas. To prevent these negative consequences, KTE annually cleans out the ash sump including transportation of ash and slag waste to the municipal solid waste landfill. This way, the waste water quality is improved and pollution of the river is entirely excluded.
