Preservation of water resources is an important part of the Holding’s commitment to environmental safety and includes a program for maintaining fish populations in rivers, lakes and reservoirs. From 2018 to 2020 the environment team at RNG (a subsidiary of EastSib Holding) released more than a million salmon fry into a tributary of the Vilyui reservoir in Yakutia.

SyuldyukarNefteGaz (another subsidiary of EastSib Holding) assists work by local government in Mirny district in Yakutia to provide clean water to local people. In September 2018, the company installed filters at the water treatment plant in the village of Syuldyukar, which had been affected by water pollution in the Irelyakh and Vilyuy rivers.

The fire-fighting section at RNG was awarded a certificate of thanks by the Forestry Department of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) for its invaluable contribution to extinguishing fires, which broke out in forests around the town of Mirny in the summer of 2018. The fire-fighting section has purchased mobile equipment and conducts training sessions and regular patrolling of the territories to protect forest areas and nearby settlements.
