East Siberian Oil and Gas Plants Over One Million Pine Seedlings

20 October 2022

The East Siberian Oil and Gas Company, a production enterprise of Rosneft Oil Company, has completed reforestation work in the Kezhemsky district of Krasnoyarsk Territory. The enterprise’s specialists planted more than a million pine seedlings in an area of 365 hectares in the Kodinsky forest district that was destroyed by fire.

Forests are natural sinks for greenhouse gases. Rosneft traditionally pays special attention to reforestation. The Company and its subsidiaries plant seedlings of various tree species on a regular basis. In 2021 alone, the Company’s enterprises planted around 9.3 million young trees across Russia.

Rosneft’s approaches to forestry and reforestation are outlined in the public position «Preserving the planet for the benefit of present and future generations: sustainable forest management».

As part of its strategy «Rosneft 2030: credible strategy and global energy transition», the Company strives to avoid damaging natural ecosystems in its operations and sets long-term targets for their conservation and sustainable development.

Rosneft was Russia’s first oil and gas company to publicly commit to the UN’s 17 goals. In December 2018, the Company’s Board of Directors approved the public stance «Rosneft: Contribution to the Implementation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the UN».
