23 October 2014

Burisma Holdings, the largest independent gas producer in Ukraine, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the USAID Municipal Energy Reform Project (MERP) in Ukraine.

«Throughout the project our team will be promoting best international practices in energy efficiency as well as attracting top experts into thematic workshops, round table discussions and conferences with regional authorities. I believe that the USAID Municipal Energy Reform Project (MERP) in Ukraine will be another significant element in building the national strategy of energy independence», noted the Advisor to the Board of Directors of Burisma Holdings Vadym Pozharskyi.

The four-year USAID Municipal Energy Reform Project (MERP), implemented by the International Resources group (IRG), was launched in October 2013. The primary purpose of the Municipal Energy Reform Project (MERP) is to enhance Ukraine’s energy security. Increased end-use energy efficiency (EE) combined with energy planning and increased use of clean energy (CE) in large towns and cities will reduce the consumption of conventional energy in Ukraine. This will result in reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and reductions of energy expenditures and imports.

According to Vadym Pozharskyi, bearing in mind the level of responsibility before civil society for sustainable use of natural resources and preservation of favorable environmental conditions, the Company is applying highest standards for environmental protection and industrial safety. «Based on our corporate strategy and values, Burisma Holdings is currently working on the development program to ensure safe working conditions for its employees and people residing close to production areas as well as to preserve favorable environment and create energy-efficient economy», added Vadym Pozharskyi.
