SIBUR took the sixth place in the rating of European companies responsible for pollution with disposable plastic

May 24/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- SIBUR took the sixth place in the rating of European companies responsible for pollution with disposable plastic, said Novayagazeta.

Australian charity Minderoo Foundation published a joint report with partner organizations, according to which more than half (55%) of disposable plastic in the world are in 20 companies. In the rating of European companies, the Russian petrochemical SIBUR was in sixth place.

In the overall rating of Plastic Waste Makers, the first place went to the American oil company ExxonMobil. It accounts for 5.9 mln tonnes of global waste. In second place is the Chinese oil and gas corporation Sinopec (5.3 mln tonnes), in third place is the Dow chemical company (5.5 mln tonnes), based in the United States.

Russian SIBUR took 32nd place in the overall rating of 100 companies (0.8 mln tonnes of plastic waste), Nizhnekamskneftekhim - 80 place (0.3 mln tonnes), Kazanorgsintez, 91 place (0.2 mln tonnes).

Among European manufacturers of disposable plastics, Sibur is in sixth place, Nizhnekamskneftekhim is in 13th place, Kazanorgsintez is in 22nd place.

The authors of the study concluded that the world's largest banks contribute to the planet's plastic pollution, as they finance companies. Experts estimate that the world's twenty largest banks, including Barclays, HSBC and Bank of America, have committed nearly USD30 billion since 2011 to plastic production.

The report also notes that in the next five years, plastic production in the world could grow by more than 30%, and for some companies - by 400%. The researchers emphasize that most of the single-use plastic waste will cause pollution in developing countries with poor waste management systems.
