Nizhniy Tagil Iron & Steel Works (part of Evraz Group) won five prizes in the Environmental Security 2007 contest and took part in the awarding ceremony in Yekaterinburg. Fourteen industrial enterprises, all of which are based in Ural Federal District and employ 20 to 31,000 people, participated in the competition. Nizhniy Tagil received more prizes than any other contestant: the enterprise was given three diplomas for the best corporate environmental program, the environmental management system, and waste management, as well as two second prizes for open air and surface water protection, the spokesperson for Evraz Group said to UrBC.


Thanks to its conservational programs and upgrading of most production facilities, the enterprise managed to cut down on the amount of harmful emissions by close to 3,000 tons in 2007, while the volume of recycled industrial waste exceeded that of produced waste by nearly 2.5 million tons. In March 2007, Nizhniy Tagil Iron & Steel Works won one of the prizes in European Quality Gold Medal contest in Russia’s One Hundred Best Companies category. In November 2007, the company received a certificate issued by TÜV Rheinland Group that confirms the enterprise’s compliance with the international ISO 14001 environmental requirements.
