Results of the Environmental Transparency Rating of Oil & Gas Companies to be presented on November 30

On November 30, TASS will host the presentation of the results of the annual “Environmental Transparency Rating of Oil & Gas Companies” for 2021. The TASS press center website will begin the broadcast on November 30 at 12.00. The event will be held in Russian language with English translation.

Which companies have improved their transparency and disclosure over the past year, and how will they perform while decarbonization is accelerating? One of the key steps is the implementation of responsible financing mechanisms in Russia. During the discussion titled “Launching responsible financing system: how much does energy transition cost?” the leading representatives of business, politics and banking sector will speak on how the non-financial reporting affects the oil and gas sector, and which tools can be used to finance future projects.

The Rational Approach Project (https://zs-rating.ru/en/) of the CREON Group and WWF Russia has been implemented with EU support since 2014 and makes it possible to assess which companies are environmentally transparent and develop their eco agenda in line with international standards. In 2021, the rating was calculated by a new project partner – the ACRA rating agency.
