18.06.2010   •   Big Bratsk

The two-hour meeting was held in the city hall. The parties were involved in the discussion of cooperation, retrofit of forestry facilities and in particular construction of new pulping capacities. Alexander Serov expressed his position for Mill owners by sharing in the Bratsk residents' concerns about a challenging environmental situation in the city. Therefore, construction of a new line is primarily subject to investors solving the emissions issue and ensuring sustainable environmental efforts. Paul Herbert, Ilim Group's CEO, emphasized that the Company considered improvement of the environmental status one of its priorities and the project implied reduction of emission and said "I assure you that this project will achieve a significant improvement of Bratsk environment in terms of emissions, effluents and discharges."
