Date of publication: 10 May 2017 Print

Seeking implementation of the Transneft events approved by Nikolay Tokarev, the President of the Company, and to be carried out in the scope of 2017 as the Year of Ecology in the Russian Federation, employees of all Giprotruboprovod branches arranged and held environmental clean-up events in their cities.

In Moscow, Volgograd, Ufa, Samara, Omsk, Kazan, Tyumen, and Krasnodar the company employees went into the streets to tidy up the parks and public gardens, clear their areas of litter, plant young trees, tidy up children’s playgrounds, paint fences and curbs, arrange new flower beds, i.e. to improve the view of the cities.

Saplings of Norway maple were planted at the environmental clean-up event in Volgograd, as this very species takes well in the local climate of the Volga region, easily endures a sharp change in temperatures, successfully survives in the scorching southern summer sun and in winter frosts with bitter winds. The maple lane will embellish Radomsky public garden, the place of fierce battles in September 1942, where warriors of the Red Army were giving their lives defending each span of the land of Volgograd. The branch employees have been maintaining order in the legendary historic sites.

Environmental events arranged by Giprotruboprovod go beyond the citywide actions; the institute committed to reduce the specific emissions of contaminants into the air and to meet the performance criteria and indicators in the field of environmental safety pursuant to Transneft regulations. The surveillance audit of Giprotruboprovod’s environmental management system by international auditors of the DQS certification system has been scheduled for August 2017.
