The construction of Olympic facilities and the accompanying infrastructure will inevitably require intrusion into the natural ecosystems. The primary task that has been set before DCRC-Sochi is to minimize and fully compensate for all damages done.



During design and construction stages, we are guided by requirements as defined in: the Constitution of the Russian Federation; federal laws on Protection of the Environment, on Specially Protected Natural Areas, on Animal Life, on Ecological Appraisals, on Atmospheric Air Protection, and on Production and Consumption Waste Management; Russian Federation codes regulating Air, Land, and Forests, among others; and the legislative requirements of the Krasnodar Krai and the City of Sochi, as well as Russian Railways’ Ecology Strategy.

Priority will be given to adopting preventive measures over and above the measures for the elimination of ecologically negative effects.

The company will develop and carry out a transparent ecological policy directed towards ensuring ecological security. The fundamental principles of this policy are using the most energy-efficient, resource-saving and ecologically clean technologies available; the ecologically secure recycling of waste; and the reduction and limitation of harmful substance emissions into the atmosphere. Environmental damages will be compensated in full.

The design and construction of a number of facilities will affect the area’s unique natural landscapes. This reaffirms the tremendous social significance of preserving the natural environment.

We are counting on society’s and citizen's understanding of the complexity and scale of the projects being implemented and the tasks set before the company.

For the purposes of ecological security and minimizing damages to the environment during construction work, DCRC-Sochi will strive to ensure the reduction of technogenic burdens on the environment from newly built and reconstructed facilities through improving the quality of design documentation preparation, and using the most efficient, ecologically secure technologies and techniques in all projects. Systems for the industrial ecological testing and monitoring of environmental conditions are being developed, implemented, and improved.
