The traditional annual environmental event organized by Transneft, JSC, was held in Sokolniki Park on November 8, 2014.
Company employees laid out the Far Eastern Alley, planting Amur velvet saplings in one of the most popular recreational areas enjoyed by both Muscovites and visitors to the capital. This cork tree grows primarily in the Russian Far East and is a true natural monument as it belongs to relict plants, whose history dates back to the pre-glacial period.
Today, these unique plants can be seen in Moscow. The Far Eastern Alley of Transneft, JSC, is located on the fifth radial vista of Sokolniki Park.
During the inaugural ceremony, the President of Transneft, JSC, Nikolay Tokarev, stated: “The Far East is a region with a unique culture, abundant resources and a fragile ecosystem. We need to protect all this and preserve it for posterity. Transneft demonstrates a responsible approach to operations in the region, where one of the most strategic Russian oil pipelines has been laid – the Eastern Siberia – Pacific Ocean Pipeline. We strictly observe the highest environmental standards in all our activities and operations, thereby ensuring the maximum level of security. This is not Transneft’s first environmental event, and I am sure that this excellent tradition will continue in the future.”
On November 9, 2013, the Alley of Life of Transneft, JSC, appeared in Sokolniki Park. As part of an environmental community action (“subbotnik”), company employees planted 150 specially grown red oak saplings in the sixth radial vista of the park. These trees are specifically adapted to the climatic conditions of central Russia.
