The planned component activities are:

  • creating and supporting the information web portal with:
    • information about the Project and its organizers,
    • Russian and international legislation on protection of the ozone layer and climate,
    • environmentally friendly refrigeration technologies for the fishing industry of the Murmansk oblast,
    • recommendations on improvement of energy efficiency of refrigeration systems,
    • information about activities and their outcomes,

  • organizing various activities, inter alia as part of regional trade exhibitions, including the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, together with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Murmansk oblast;
