The environmental aspects of Moscow Exchange’s activities are governed by Russian environmental legislation and standards, as well as by MOEX’s own internal documents — the Environmental Monitoring and Industrial Control Program (adopted in 2017) and Waste Generation and Disposal Limits draft standards (adopted by the Moscow Department for Environmental Management and Protection for the five-year period through February 2023).
The internal environmental monitoring regulations used at all the Exchange’s premises help MOEX meet modern environmental requirements:
- analyzing operational processes and selecting the best technologies for efficient use of resources and energy;
- introducing technologies for recycling and waste disposal;
- preventing pollution, reducing environmental impact;
- monitoring compliance with environmental legislation and maintaining a safe office environment and high levels of well-being for staff.
