Moscow Exchange Group companies are guided in their approach to environmental impact by regulatory requirements and best practices adopted by companies in the financial services sector worldwide. The Group supports the precautionary principle enshrined in the UN’s 1992 Rio Declaration.
MOEX’s environmental policies are governed by the Exchange’s Industrial Control Program, as well as the draft standards on Waste Generation and Disposal Limits approved by the Moscow Department of Environmental Management and Protection for the five years to February 2023.
Key areas for reducing MOEX’s environmental impact include:
- increasing energy efficiency (including electricity, heat and automobile fuel);
- improving efficiency of water use;
- reducing the amount of waste generated and increasing the share of recyclable waste;
- increasing awareness of environmental issues and encouraging responsibility among employees.
