For her part The National Research Center for Marine Biology is ready to provide Vostochny Port JSC with methodological and informational support for educational environmental programs implemented by a stevedoring company from Nakhodka. Vostochny Port regularly holds campaigns and events, the overall goal of which is to preserve the environment on the territory of the enterprise. Over the past few years, by order of the stevedoring company, tens of millions of fish fry, scallops and trepangs, and kelp sprouts have been raised and released into the water bodies of Primorye. Ecomarathon has become a good tradition for Vostochny Port JSC and residents of the Wrangel microdistrict - an educational project that provides educational lectures for young people, organizes environmental tours and contests, planting green spaces and clean-ups to clean the sea coast and the seabed from garbage.

Environmental safety during coal transshipment, care for the environment and residents are priority number 1 in the work of JSC "Vostochny Port". Three years ago, a five-sided agreement was signed with the administration of the Primorsky Territory, the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation, Rosprirodnadzor and Rosmorport, according to which the company is implementing an Environmental Action Plan to minimize the impact on the environment. The document formed the basis for the unique comprehensive environmental program of Vostochny Port JSC, in which the stevedoring company has already invested 6 billion rubles. The management of Vostochny Port JSC considers projects to support the environmental component of production activities as an integral, systematic part of its strategy, which reflects the global trend in the development of a “green” economy. The statement of Russian President Vladimir Putin at the April climate summit that our country will continue to implement a large-scale program of environmental modernization in all sectors of the economy has real confirmation in the affairs and plans of Vostochny Port JSC.
Vostochny Port JSC (Wrangel microdistrict, Primorsky Territory) is the largest specialized terminal in Russia with high-tech coal transshipment. The stevedore enterprise provides export transshipment of coal from various Russian producers. The terminal's cargo turnover in 2020 amounted to 26.85 million tons of coal products. Vostochny Port JSC at all stages of coal transshipment to sea transport uses a set of the best available technologies that minimize the impact of production activities on the environment. In particular, these are closed car dumpers, covered conveyor lines, transfer stations with aspiration systems, as well as ship-loading machines equipped with a local and all-season coal flow irrigation system, which ensure hermetic loading of coal into the holds of ships. The environmental safety of the enterprise is also ensured by aspiration systems, dry fog systems and irrigation of coal stacks with water cannons and snow generators. Along the perimeter of the terminal, 20-meter metal windscreens with a total length of 3 kilometers are installed. Today these are the largest defensive structures in the Far East.
