On October 26, CPC General Director Nikolay Gorban took the floor at this event.

Environmental safety and protection, rational use of natural resources, and biodiversity conservation are among the priority tasks of CPC activities. The Company is implementing a broad range of activities related to environmental and industrial safety of CPC production facilities, as well as charitable projects and programs for biodiversity conservation in the regions where CPC operates and for building environmental awareness of a younger generation”, he noted in his report. 

The second day of the conference agenda includes a visit of its guests and participants to the environmental visit center and territory of "Kislovodskiy" national park.

The CPC environmental awareness project “Protect Nature of Our Native Land” has been implemented since 2014 and it covers all regions crossed by the Tengiz-Novorossiysk trunk crude oil pipeline - Astrakhan Oblast, Republic of Kalmykia, Stavropol Krai and Krasnodar Krai.  Taking into account local specifics, the program targets endangered species of flora and fauna.

In Stavropol Krai, CPC provides charitable aid to the regional directorate of specially protected natural areas, and maintains cooperation with “Russian Forest”, “Buguntinsky” and “Lesnaya Dacha” nature reserves. Only last year about 100 units of various equipment were purchased for the directorate. Awareness lessons and lectures were organized in 21 educational institutions in seven regional municipalities.
