Nord Stream 2 AG, the developer of a natural gas pipeline through the Baltic Sea, took part in the 20th Baltic Sea Day international environmental forum. The forum is held annually in St Petersburg, in cooperation with HELCOM (the Baltic Marine Environment Protection Commission - Helsinki Commission). Nord Stream 2 supports the forum as an important platform for discussion of environmental issues in the Baltic region.

This year, Nord Stream 2’s experts and partners presented the results of environmental research and conservation projects implemented in Russia as part of the Environmental and Community Initiatives (ECo-I) strategy. Developed specifically for the landfall in Russia, Nord Stream 2’s ECo-I strategy represents a holistic approach to reinstatement and compensation, biodiversity enhancement, community initiatives and local sponsorship activities. The strategy is an expression of the company’s commitment to responsible infrastructure development in the region.

The monitoring programme allowed scientists to gather data on seasonal salmon migration in the Baltic Sea and thereby optimise the construction schedule to account for critical periods for ichthyofauna. The experts also reported on the release of Atlantic salmon fry as part of the 2018 compensation program and plans for the upcoming season.

At the “Biodiversity Conservation in the Baltic Region” round table, experts from the St. Petersburg State University presented a study of the tourism load within the Kurgalsky reserve, performed with the company’s support. This is the first study of such a magnitude and methodological complexity ever to have been performed in a protected area within the Leningrad region. In addition to opinion polls, in-depth interviews with tourists and experts, and focus groups with stakeholders, the study also drew on digital anthropological-research methods.

The study identified key tourist sites, measured the intensity of the touristic flows and explored behavioural patterns. The
