BitRiver does not cause any harm to the environment and uses low-cost electricity from renewable energy sources for mining. The first largest BitRiver data center located in Bratsk (Irkutsk Region, Russia) in 2022 was issued a positive opinion on the verification of its report on zero greenhouse gas emissions.
In June 2021, BitRiver signed a contract with En+ Group, the world's largest producer of low-carbon aluminium and independent hydropower, to purchase 1 million international renewable energy certificates (I-RECs) during 2021-2022. En+ Group has started issuing I- RECs since December 2020. I-RECs are corresponding to the electric energy produced by En+ Group companies such as JSC EuroSibEnergo (Krasnoyarsk HPP) and LLC Abakan SPP (Abakansk Solar Plant).
