“Increased attention to environmental issues is a priority for the Nakhodka Trade Seaport. We are implementing our own extensive environmental program, the results of which we report regularly. Obtaining an international standard certificate is important for us and allows us to reach a new level of environmental responsibility,” said Vladimir Grigoriev, CEO of the Nakhodka MTP.
