#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Information agencies Interfax and AK&M, accredited by the Bank of Russia for information disclosure on the stock market, presented Nornickel with the annual award for information transparency. The company has not reduced its disclosure volumes in 2022 and is consistently demonstrating its commitment to the transparency principles, the experts stated.
When selecting the winner, the award takes into account the completeness and timeliness of disclosure of reports, corporate events, information about ultimate owners, informative messages, including the company’s attention to environmental, social responsibility and corporate governance (ESG) issues.
