ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih as before is ready to cooperate with public authorities

Kryvyi Rih, 19 July 2019. The environment in Kryvyi Rih was discussed at Dnipropetrovsk Regional Administration with the participation of top-management of ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih. At this meeting, they confirmed once again that, as before, the Company has no objection against the inspections by environment inspectorate upon condition of proper execution of accompanying documents complying with effective legislation. All statements that the Company “denied admission of controlling authorities for many years” are manipulations. They are disproved with the fact of unscheduled inspection held by the inspectorate in April 2019.

It concerns both strategic investments in production modernization and switch to the best technologies in metallurgy, as well as keeping of efficient operation of pollution control plants of many production facilities.

Acting Chief Executive Officer of ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih Aleksandr Ivanov called everyone’s attention to the fact that the Company is interested in emissions reduction as it is directly linked with increased expenses for environmental tax. Particularly, tax rate for carbon dioxide emissions was increased in 25 times from this year. He confirmed development of short-term action plan, which will enable increase in the efficiency of equipment operation. The Company will inform later about the details of the proposals for environment footprint reduction.

The managers of the Company welcomed creation of working group in the nearest future and expressed their willingness to take part in its work.

There were no negotiations about “financial excuse” – compensation to the citizens of Kryvyi Rih – during the meeting at Regional Administration.
