Global Goal #12
By 2022, achieve the environmentally sound management of chemicals and all wastes throughout their life cycle, in accordance with agreed international frameworks, and significantly reduce their release to air, water and soil in order to minimize their adverse impacts on human health and the environment.
Project name
Project period
To achieve environmentally sound use of all waste types throughout their life cycle by minimizing the amount of industrial waste and ensuring the possibility of their reuse.

To ensure sound management of natural resources.
The identification of the state-of-the-art methodologies of industrial waste reuse.

The transfer of industrial waste (in particular porcelain insulators) to companies engaged in the manufacture of construction mixtures for their use in production processes.

The reuse of industrial waste (in particular porcelain insulators) during constructions at the company's substations.

The extension of the use period of porcelain insulators, which would have to be disposed of, in order to use them for substations' decorations.
1. Various methods of reuse of industrial waste are defined.
2. The use of natural resources is reduced:
NPC UKRENERGO is a power company responsible for operational and technological control of the Integrated Power System (IPS) of Ukraine and electricity transmission via trunk power grids from generating plants to the distribution networks of the regional electricity suppliers (oblenergos).
Organizers and partners
By 2030, substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse.
3. The utilization of industrial waste amounting to UAH 750,000 was avoided.
4. Further researches on scientifically sound methods of reusing industrial waste are being conducted.
tons of porcelain insulators were reused instead of using natural resources (wood and metal) to make street tables, flower beds, benches, urns for household waste and fencing
of gravel were preserved
tons of industrial waste (porcelain insulators) were used to manufacture the foundation of temporary waste storage sites and backup equipment at the 330 kV substation "VDGMK"
of industrial waste (porcelain insulators) were used to repair the road surface at the 330 kV substation "Prometheus"
of industrial waste (porcelain insulators) were used for the production of construction mixtures
At the UN Global Compact, we aim to mobilize a global movement of sustainable companies and stakeholders to create the world we want. That's our vision.

To make this happen, the UN Global Compact supports companies to:

Do business responsibly by aligning their strategies and operations with Ten Principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption; and Take strategic actions to advance broader societal goals, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with an emphasis on collaboration and innovation.
