GHG emissions

Including its planned projects to upgrade and expand production facilities, and its major environmental performance improvement programme, Nornickel’s ambition is to stabilise its annual greenhouse gas emissions at a level not exceeding 10 to 12 mln t of СО2-equivalent.

GHG emissions (mln t of СО2 equivalent) The estimate was made in 2019 as per the GHG Protocol Guidelines and includes carbon dioxide (СО2) and methane (СH4) emissions).
Indicator 2017 2018 2019

Scope 2 0.1 0.1 0.1
Total emissions (Scope 1+ 2) 10.3 10.0 9.9
GHG emission intensity index (%)Carbon intensity index is calculated as carbon emissions per tonne of copper equivalent as a percentage relative to its level in 2013, assumed as 100%.
