The Bashneft company (part of the Rosneft structure) in 2023 increased funding for environmental protection measures by 40% – over 9 billion rubles were allocated for these purposes. At the same time, over the past 5 years, Bashneft’s “green” investments have exceeded 30.5 billion rubles.

Preserving the environment for future generations is an integral part of the corporate culture of Rosneft. The activities of all the Company’s enterprises are aimed at achieving leadership positions in minimizing the impact on the environment and increasing the environmental friendliness of production.

Bashneft is effectively implementing a program for the restoration of forests and aquatic biological resources. Thanks to the initiative of Bashkir oil workers, over the past five years, over 4.5 million trees have been planted on an area of more than 1.3 thousand hectares. In addition, new alleys, gardens and parks have been created in several regions. One of the key actions in 2023 was the planting of 30 thousand seedlings in the Asly-Kul natural park in the Davlekanovsky district of Bashkiria, which made it possible to provide favorable conditions for restoring the hydrological regime of Lake Aslikul, the largest in the region.

To maintain biodiversity and preserve ecosystems in the regions where it operates, Bashneft carries out measures for the artificial reproduction of aquatic biological resources. Over the past 5 years, oil workers have released more than 5 million juveniles of valuable fish species, including sterlet, whitefish, salmon, and peled, into the reservoirs of Bashkortostan, Khanty-Mansiysk and Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.

Biological treatment facilities (BWTP) of the Ufa group of refineries have processed 134 million m3 of wastewater over the past 5 years. The biological treatment plants serve not only the Bashneft refineries, but also treat wastewater from 66 enterprises in the northern industrial zone of Ufa and storm drains. Treatment facilities provide the highest level of purification of industrial, storm and domestic wastewater, which increases the volume of reused water in technological processes by 2.5 times. Thanks to membrane reactor technology, all impurities and microorganisms are removed from wastewater. As a result, the water quality meets the standards for fishery reservoirs.

In addition, thanks to the implementation of environmental projects in 2019-2023, Bashneft reduced its emissions into the atmosphere by 11%.
