Polymetal International plc (LSE, MOEX: POLY, ADR: AUCOY) (together with its subsidiaries – “Polymetal”, the “Company”, or the “Group”) is pleased to announce that it was awarded the top rating in environmental responsibility among Russian metals and mining companies. 

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF), in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Global Environmental Faciltiy, and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation published the results of their environmental responsibility assessment for Russian metals and mining companies.

Among the 33 companies included in the rating, Polymetal is tied for the 1st place with Kinross Gold, based on three categories: Environmental Management, Environmental Impact and Disclosure/Transparency. This is a major improvement from the previous rating where Polymetal was ranked 7th.
