10 thousand trees planted for reforestation in the Irkutsk region

On September 14, 10 thousand larch and pine saplings were planted in the Goloustnoye forestry of the Irkutsk region to restore the forest that burned down in 2003. Planting was organized within the framework of the PosadiLes forest restoration and conservation project with the support of the regional Ministry of Forestry, the ECA movement and the SPLAT company, which compensates for its carbon footprint.

Посадка прошла на территории площадью 2 га, в них приняли участие около 80 волонтеров, среди них — неравнодушные местные жители, представители общественных организаций, студенты. Territories для посадок были специально подготовлены сотрудниками местных лесничеств, которые будут осуществлять последующий уход за саженцами. На средства, пожертвованные SPLAT, были закуплены саженцы, организован транспорт и питание для волонтеров.

By planting trees with the PosadiLes project, SPLAT is offsetting the amount of carbon dioxide emitted from its operations. It is the first company in Russia to receive a CO2 neutrality certificate from the ECA movement. The company has already planted more than 24 thousand trees in Udmurtia, Irkutsk, Astrakhan and Volgograd regions.

“Thanks to everyone who supports our project and restores forests with us! We express our deep respect, love and gratitude to you for your contribution and support. Together we are doing a great job! " - Project Manager "PosadiLes" Munteanu Marianna.

“It is not the first year that residents of the Irkutsk region have been actively involved in tree planting. It is very pleasant to observe that every year the number of volunteers is only growing, and reforestation activities are supported by a socially responsible business. We thank everyone for their contribution to the preservation of the nature of our region for future generations, ” - says Svetlana Pervenetskaya, coordinator of the PosadiLes project in Irkutsk.
