On July 4, the results of the activities held as part of the Green Spring 2019 national environmental cleanup were summarized at Gazprom Transgaz Tomsk. The company implemented 99 environmental initiatives, and over 2,000 employees took part in the events organized within the Green Spring action.

All 14 regions where Gazprom Transgaz Tomsk is present joined the national environmental cleanup. For instance, the company’s employees cleaned public parks in Barabinsk (Novosibirsk Region) and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, and also released fingerlings of chum salmon into the Gur River in the Khabarovsk Territory, while the employees of the Yurginskoye Gas Pipeline Operation Center made birdhouses. The staff of the Primorskoye Gas Pipeline Operation Center continued to plant trees on Gas Workers’ Avenue in the arboretum of the Gornotaezhnaya Station. A range of activities were implemented to clean territories and plant trees.

Within the May-June period, the employees of Gazprom Transgaz Tomsk cleaned over 200 hectares of land, collecting about 130 tons of waste, and planted over 20,000 trees. For the results achieved during the cleanup action, its organizers – the Vernadsky Nongovernmental Ecological Foundation and the All-Russian Society for Nature Protection – awarded the company with a diploma and a trophy cup for commitment, initiative and a considerable contribution to environmental protection.
