Let’s clean our planet together!
For several years our company has been clearing Arctic territories
from scrap metal.
«Today we should discuss ecology in an assertive and practical manner and take nature protection to the level of systematic, everyday duty of state authorities at all levels»
The company had not only to collect the scrap, but also to cut it on-site and then export it directly from the polar region. Such logistics allowed to avoid extra shipment expenses and to make the arctic expedition cost efficient.
Primary goal: complete cleanup of the territories
The tasks set before KTA are extremely relevant because most of the polluted areas are deer pasture ground. Solving this problem is one of the main objectives for the local authorities in terms of preservation and development of reindeer herding, a legacy industry. As well as preservation of traditional lifestyle and protection of primordial living environment of indigenous minorities of the North and other ethnic communities living in Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
It is remarkable that KTA funds all works on its own, without budgetary assistance, which not only has a positive effect on the district economy, but most importantly, speeds up implementation of the state measures on removing pollution and other adverse environmental impacts.
The result of this fruitful work is preservation of the environment and, as a consequence, living standards improvement in the district as well as creation of new workplaces for the local people who are directly engaged into these important activities.
So far an area of 50 ha has been cleared on Kolguyev, 10 000 tons of scrap metal have been collected. The total area of pollution is 50 000 ha.
KTA plans to meet this target within 2-3 years. It is worth noting that this is probably the largest project in this field in the Nenets Autonomous Region.
Speaking about corporate responsibility, it is important to say that this program will help to create workplaces for the local people and provide respectable salaries.
So far approximately 10 000 tons of scrap metal have been collected. The works will continue on a year-round basis. We plan to collect another 10 000 tons of scrap metal during the winter period.
Aside from clearing polar areas, KTA is building a gym in the township of Amderma
According to the agreements with the municipality, KTA performs territory improvement works, creates transport infrastructure, dismantles residence buildings.
