WWF ENCOURAGES THE PUBLIC TO DISCUSS METHODS BEHIND ENVIRONMENTAL TRANSPARENCY RANKINGS
On May 20, during the annual meeting in the UN Information Center in Russia, experts discussed the questions of optimizing the criteria for the ranking and the validity of the figures used for the environmental transparency and responsibility rankings for steel plants. Companies made around 50 suggestions on improving the methodology. At the end of the month, ranking developers will make all the necessary changes to the calculation program.
The environmental transparency ranking for mining companies and steel plants was initiated by WWF Russia and the UN Environment Program (Mission in the Russian Federation) in 2017.
The rankings are aimed at attracting public attention to environmental development of Russia, maintaining biodiversity, and providing environmental safety.
