Climate change

The current and future effects of the global average temperature increase may have a negative impact on all areas of human life, including business.

Joining efforts at the international level, the participation of corporate players is necessary to combat climate change and achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement to limit the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels.

Uralchem ​supports this initiative and improves production processes to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

At the moment, the Company is developing a climate strategy. In the near future, Uralchem plans to analyze in detail the scenarios of climate change and their impact on the Company and to set targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

In 2021, GHG emissions (Scope 1+2) accounted to 8.2 m tonnes of CO2e. GHG emissions intensity (Scope 1 + Scope 2) remained almost unchanged y/y  and accounted for 1.26 t CO2e/t of product.
