22.04.2019

On 20th of April, 2019 employees of KuibyshevAzot came out for afforestation, once again contributing to restoration of “urban lungs” that were destroyed by flames of 2010 forest fire. Those employees of the enterprise, who postponed all their affairs on a day off helped to plant 25 000 poles transplants at 5 ha of forest land in the area of the Portovy village of city of Tolyatti.

Participation in planting poles transplants has become a useful tradition of the enterprise. Many employees try to join this act of kindness coming with families and children.

In 2012 KuibyshevAzot under agreement with Ministry of Forest, Environment and Nature management of Samara region took 15 ha of the forest under patronage: 5 ha were for planting and rest 10 ha of saved forest- for treatment and clearing.

Over the past years, KuibyshevAzot has been a regular participant in the Nash Les (Our Forest) city program, organized by the Togliatti Foundation charity foundation. In 2016, KuybyshevAzot financed planting of 10 hectares of forest under this program.

The program also provides funding for post-planting care over the next three years. In 2017 - 2018 the forces of PJSC "KuibyshevAzot" restored only 10 hectares of forest, followed by the post-planting care.

In 2019 KuibyshevAzot plans to plant seedlings at 10 ha territory,5 ha of which were recovered on April 20, 2019.

Elena Kosova- Head of information department KuibyshevAzot clarified the following: “Participation in forest renewal activities has long been a good tradition for our enterprise. We have already planted 25 ha of the forest and 10 ha will be planted this year. We suppose that working together with concerned citizens we will be able, at least partially, to compensate for the damage of 2010 the forest fire. KuibyshevAzot intends to continue acting in this direction at any rate”.
