Norilsk Nickel is one of Russia's leading producers of non-ferrous and platinum-group metals and the country's largest air polluter. Three of the company's six subsidiaries are located on the Kola Peninsula. This chapter reviews the problem of air pollution on the Kola Peninsula, the status of the area's mining and metallurgical complex — with an emphasis on the Norilsk Nickel combines — and the role of various actors in the implementation of Russia's international obligations related to air pollution control. It reviews implementation performance and target compliance mainly with reference to the LRTAP regime.
