Rosneft implements a programme for the biological diversity preservation

Russian integrated energy company Rosneft has launched the implementation of a programme to assess the sustainability of the Arctic ecosystems based on research on key Arctic animal species.

“The Company’s strategy is aimed at the utmost respect for the environment and the issue of biological diversity preservation,” said Rosneft spokesman Mikhail Leontyev.

The scale of the upcoming research will be historical for the region. No studies of such magnitude have been done in the Arctic before.

Rosneft is implementing a programme for the biological diversity preservation to ensure safe development of the Arctic and preserve its unique ecosystems. It also includes studies of marine ecosystems and observation of animal species that are indicators of the Arctic ecosystem.

The programme fells under the framework of the Rosneft 2022 Strategy. As a responsible producer and participant of the global energy market, Rosneft is committed to the rational development of natural resources and implements large-scale projects in oil and gas production, modernisation of production and refining facilities to reduce its environmental impact and production of modern, environmentally friendly fuels.

More than 170 hours of aviation research including using unmanned aerial vehicles are planned under the expedition. More than 100 animals and birds will be tagged and more than 1,000 biological samples have been chosen for subsequent laboratory tests.
