Climate action and cutting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is a global challenge that needs to be addressed through joint efforts. Naftogaz is aware of its role in addressing the climate change, which is to supply gas as a less carbon-intensive fuel to facilitate energy transition. The company supports Ukraine’s goal of achieving climate neutrality no later than 2060.
In 2021, Naftogaz set a goal of reaching net zero GHG operational emissions by 2040. We are currently elaborating a comprehensive de-carbonisation plan that will account for the benefits and lessons learned from the international best practices and standards.
Preservation of environment is an unconditional priority for National Joint Stock Company “Naftogaz of Ukraine” and its subsidiaries. The Company is focused on mitigating the adverse environmental impact and environmental risks in the course of its production operations. The Company’s unified environmental policy is aimed at ensuring effective environmental management across our entities, implementation of state-of-the-art environmental standards, and following best practices.
