Environmental Standards for Operations of Oil and Gas Companies Acting in Russia , on its Continental Shelf, and within it Exclusive Economic Zone developed by Russian Non-governmental Nature Conservation Organizations. – Moscow , 2005. 8 pages.
«Environmental Standards» is an attempt to help oil and gas companies formulate effective corporate environmental policies based on the necessity of ensuring environmental safety and the minimization of negative environmental consequences.
«Environmental Standards» is our appeal to the organs of federal and local government to: identify priorities and approaches in regulating the activities of oil and gas companies in the interests of the longterm sustainable development of the country and its regions; create a guide to action for developing the normative legal base; and formulate a plan for the socio-economic development of territories implementing governmental Environmental Impact Assessments and the organization of environmental monitoring.
«Environmental Standards» is a foundation for constructive dialog between NGOs and oil and gas companies.
