Throughout all the years of operation, Metinvest Group has been striving to reduce the negative impact of production on the environment. Over the past 10 years, Metinvest has allocated more than $ 3.4 billion to environmental initiatives. The group is committed to further reducing its carbon footprint to combat climate change.
However, achieving carbon neutrality will be a big challenge for Ukrainian companies, as it involves a complete change in production processes and supply chain.
In addition, the necessary technologies that will make the country's economy carbon-free are only at the research stage. Developing a detailed roadmap for the transition to a green industry requires interaction between manufacturers, engineering companies, consumers, suppliers and the government.
General Director of Metinvest Group Yuri Ryzhenkov:
- The Ukrainian industry faces a serious task that will affect the life of the whole country. Decarbonization can completely change both production and technology. The sooner business and government develop a common approach to achieving carbon neutrality, the easier this process will be for the Ukrainian economy.
