Environmental Improvements at Barents Hot Spots

The Barents Environmental Hot Spot List from 2003 consisted of 42 major polluters and severely polluted sites that impose health and environmental hazards on their surrounding communities and nature.

The Hot Spots are located in the Russian part of the Barents region; in Murmansk and Arkhangelsk Region, Nenets Autonomous Region and the Republics of Karelia and Komi. Many of the Barents Hot Spots have achieved significant environmental improvements during the recent years, while others remain to be solved. Three Hot Spots were excluded from the Barents Hot Spot list in 2017 and some of their results and environmental improvements are presented here.
