Abstract. Due to global climate change, large industrial companies face the challenges of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and implementing climate projects that contribute to the absorption and disposal of carbon dioxide (CCS). The developments of the ALROSA Group in the implementation of tasks to achieve carbon neutrality, ESG projects, climate risk management mechanisms, and projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions in 2016–2020 are considered in detail. The company’s participation in the implementation of a large-scale project to create a highly productive ecosystem in the Arctic «Pleistocene Park», as well as the beginning of the development of a unique worldwide CCS project for the absorption of carbon dioxide from the atmospheric air by kimberlite ore during its extraction and processing, was considered.

Keywords: ALROSA, carbon dioxide, Pleistocene Park, kimberlite, carbon neutralization, Carbon Capture & Storage.
