Norilsk Nickel, polluting giant, declares the new age

Norilsk Nickel, polluting giant, declares the new age Norilsk Nickel, the Russian Arctic’s industrial giant, tried to break from its environmentally hostile history by inviting Bellona to an ecological conference where it held discussions of its emissions-cutting schemes and its apparent new openness.

Its sixth annual conference, called “Environmental Defense and Industrial Activity in the North,” kicked off on Friday in Krasnoyarsk, a central Siberian city that, in the words of its governor, Alexander Uss, has ecological problems of its own.

“There’s no sense in denying existing environmental problems – ecological rehabilitation must be transparent,” Uss told the conference. “Today we are seeing progress, that there’s a consciousness that it can’t continue as it has. The profitable industry must be fortified by ecological efforts.”

As such, no one at the conference denied the company’s abysmal environmental record, but they didn’t bring up what they considered already to be well known, concentrating instead on what they wish to do to add a more positive few chapters to that history from now on. One of these chapters, all agreed, was the closure last year of a Soviet-era nickel factory on the ground of Norilsk Nickel.
