The Arctic: Territory of Ecology
29 March 2017
13:30

One of the priorities of international cooperation in the Arctic is ensuring the protection of the environment. Major objectives with respect to environmental protection include preserving and safeguarding the Arctic’s natural environment and reversing the environmental impact of economic activity in the challenging circumstances of a growing economy and global climate change. Russia adopts a responsible approach to its activities in the Arctic, and to the preservation of the Arctic’s unique natural ecosystems, natural landscapes, and flora and fauna. In recent years, several projects have been conducted on Russia’s Arctic territory with the objective of reversing the impact of pollution and other negative effects on the surrounding environment caused by economic and other types of activity. These efforts have resulted in the elimination of a significant quantity of material which had posed a genuine threat to the environment. Issues for discussion: • Preserving biodiversity in the Arctic — the international environmental obligations of Arctic states • Methods for predicting potential environmental damage caused by economic activity and mechanisms for preventing it • Measures for ensuring corporate environmental responsibility in the Arctic
