In 2022 NIS invested almost 315 million dinars in environmental projects, thus contributing to the better environment in Serbia.

NIS focuses on improving process environmental indicators, developing the environmental awareness of its employees and using the best available practices in investment projects. In 2022 the company set long-term objectives through Environmental Strategy until 2030. In order to decrease the negative environmental impact (reduction of carbon intensity, reduction of other emissions – NOx, SOx, PM, VOC, and use of resources) were revised, as well as the estimated investments needed to achieve the objectives and compliance with the requirements of the RS and EU regulations.

We completed a study on the projection of greenhouse gas emissions until 2030, which includes an analysis of technical and technological measurs for emission reduction. The study identifies the major soursces of greenhouse gas emissions and proposes possible ways to reduce emissions with a projection extending to 2030.

NIS continuously improves its environmental performance.

In accordance with the applicable waste management regulations, the Company uses the services of 40 duly authorized waste management operators holding the waste management licenses, issued by the competent authorities of the Republic of Serbia. To increase the awareness of employees and clients of the importance of waste sorting, together with a waste handling companies NIS planted birch trees at the Sokolici filling station.

Many other environmental and energy efficiency initiatives were implemented in cooperation with the community. NIS employees actively volunteer in environmental campaigns. NIS volunteers clean lake and river banks, public spaces and recreational areas, plant trees, and educate children on the importance of environmental protection. In 2022 on the Wold Environment Day NIS volunteers cleaned the banks of the Sava River Island called Ada Ciganlija.
