13Climate actionTake urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts*
Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts*
The problem of climate change knows no borders and requires a global solution.
Tatneft's efforts

Tatneft shares the global climate change concern and the Climate Care Strategic Global Partnership initiative of the UN Global Compact and the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), as enshrined in the Paris Climate Agreement. Considering the fact that energy companies generate significant greenhouse gas emissions during their production activities that can affect the climate and create climate risks, as well as an increase in energy demand to achieve and maintain a good quality of life, the Company seeks to contribute to sustainable development and development of innovative energy infrastructure.

The company provides managerial decisions on the development of a corporate system of accounting and management of greenhouse gas emissions in the direction of their reduction and carbon footprint reduction (the aggregate of greenhouse gas emissions produced by Tatneft Group companies that have an environmental impact, measured in CO2 equivalent). At the same time, the Company considers not only emissions from its operations, but also emissions from the use of products that are produced and delivered to the market by Tatneft Group companies, as well as in the supply chain related to the activities of Tatneft Group.

This Goal belongs to the priority Goals of sustainable development of TATNEFT Company.

Corporate leader in implementing the roadmap and achieving the SDG 13 targets - Deputy General Director for Industrial Safety, Labor Protection and Environment Azat Habibrahmanov

We plan target values for reducing the total greenhouse gas emissions and take appropriate measures to ensure these target values.

The company announced its transition to carbon neutrality by 2050. The Board of Directors adopted a new environmental policy taking into account climate change and approved a roadmap. The goals have been set to gradually reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 10% by 2025 and by 20% by 2030 from the base year 2016.

We adhere to international standards and guidelines: The GreenHouseGas Protocol (GHG) - for the measurement, control and disclosure of emissions, including value chains; TCFD guidelines - carbon footprint reporting as well as providing data for the CDP climate rating. We intend to expand the application of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and World Resources Institute (WRI) Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Standard for Accounting and Reporting.

The most important step was the joining of Tatneft in 2020 to the group of leaders of the international platform for setting science-based SBTi targets in order to prevent the planet's temperature from exceeding 1.5 degrees Celsius.

To reduce greenhouse gas emissions, we innovate throughout the oil production, refining, petrochemical and power generation business processes, expand our low carbon footprint product line and control the supply chain.

It is planned to develop production using renewable energy (clean generation of energy with a low carbon content) and biofuels. A promising area is the application of technologies for capturing and storing CO2 (Carbon Capture and Storage, CCS).

We believe that the most important element in reducing climate risks is offsetting CO2 emissions, taking into account the absorptive capacity of forests. In order to create a favorable environment in the area of ​​its activity and increase the absorption of greenhouse gases, Tatneft, since 2000, has been implementing the Greening Program. Since the beginning of the Program implementation by the end of 2020, more than 12 million trees have been planted. It is planned to plant 4.8 million trees in 2021.

Climate risk assessment is included in investment decision-making processes, integrated into the creation of the Company's value and into the life cycles of business processes, products and services, including contractors and suppliers.

We are aware of the importance of preserving marine and aquatic natural resources as the most important elements of the ecosystem. We urge our maritime logistics partners to take enhanced precautions to prevent spills and contamination and implement well-designed plans to minimize damage to marine life and their habitats (including the impact of downstream activities). In cases where our production facilities are located in close proximity to coastal areas or large bodies of water, we conduct research and planning work aimed at protecting aquatic life and human life, which is directly dependent on the state of aquatic ecosystems. We are implementing advanced water treatment systems to keep pollutants from entering the natural environment. We produce modern environmentally friendly marine fuels that meet the Marpol (International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships) requirements.

 The fuel is produced at the facilities of our TANECO refinery with a production capacity of 750 thousand tons per year. Preliminary calculations showed that the use of this volume will lead to a reduction in emissions of sulfur oxides into the atmosphere through exhaust gases by 47 thousand tons per year. Marine fuel is produced with an ultra-low sulfur content of less than 300 ppm (average value 120-200 ppm) with an authorized standard of 5000 ppm Hydrotreated heavy coking gas oil is used as its main component. Specialists of Tatneft and TANECO have also developed a marine fuel formulation with improved low-temperature properties.

We are aware of the relationship between the conservation of marine ecosystems and climate issues, therefore we consider the objectives and programmatic measures of SDG 14 in the framework of SDG 13.
