Greening the Planet

Naftogaz sees reforestation and afforestation as one of the measures to offset that part of its own greenhouse gas emissions that will be difficult or impossible to abate.

On 30 October 2021, Naftogaz as a national partner of the global initiative Greening of the Planet joined a large-scale tree planting within the framework of the Initiative “Planting trees by one million people in a day”. About 1,000 employees of the company and its subsidiaries joined the event. Jointly with the residents of 20 United Territorial Communities from 5 regions of Ukraine, 460 trees up to 3.5 m high and 890 bushes were planted, and a Naftogaz alley was planted in the M.M. Hryshko National Botanical Garden in Kyiv with 15 exquisite Japanese sakura trees and 35 mountain yews in the framework of the eco-project “Energy of the Earth Restoration”.
