Kuzbassrazrezugol tops WWF’s environmental transparency ranking

Kuzbassrazrezugol (a subsidiary of UMMC, a company headed by Iskander Makhmudov) takes first place in the annual environmental transparency ranking of Russian coal companies, based on data from 2020.

This ranking is carried out by WWF Russia and supported by the European Union. It aims to encourage companies to reduce their environmental impact and promote social responsibility in the region. 

In 2021 WWF assessed 39 Russian mining and metals companies on three main criteria: environmental management, environmental impact and transparency of information. 

Kuzbassrazrezugol has been participating in this ranking for three years. This year’s results confirm the importance of CSR in UMMC’s overall strategy. 

As a reminder, Kuzbassrazrezugol already distinguished itself in 2020 by ranking second among Russian coal companies in the ESG ranking published by the European rating agency RAEX-Europe.
