“We have just signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine. We agreed with Minister Ostap Semerak to provide information to the Ministry that reflects possible violations of the rights of business in the utilization of natural resources, air quality, water quality and the management of water resources, waste management, climate change, and the natural reserve funds,” reads the report.
