Polymetal entered the top ten greenest companies in Russia. The rating was compiled by the Russian edition of Forbes.

Polymetal took seventh place in the final rating, while becoming the best company in the non-ferrous metallurgy industry.

For example, the Kubaka GOK has already received equipment for the first solar power plant in the Magadan Region, and installation work will begin in the next few days. The use of renewable and clean electricity will reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases that are generated when fuel is burned in diesel power plants. At the Serebro Magadana enterprise, a dry storage area for ore leaching waste is being built, and the Omolon Gold Ore Company is implementing a project for the recycling of mine waters.

The company's production processes are carried out in accordance with the requirements of the international standard ISO 14001: 2015 - environmental management system.
