Our production workflow is certified according to OHSAS 18001:2007 “Occupational health and safety management systems”.
We strictly observe Ukrainian environmental legislation requirements. Our environmental management system is certified according to ISO 14001:2004. Every year we initiate an environmental impact study of our operations, which includes a monitoring of populations of birds and bats.
Our annual supply of electricity from wind replaces the need for burning 300,000 tonnes of coal or 153 million cubic meters of gas, and therefore, allows to reduce CO2 emissions by 600,000-700,000 tonnes per year.
