Employees of the KASTAMONU plant in the Alabuga SEZ have planted 1,500 trees in the forests of Tatarstan within four yearsMedia
Plant's employees regularly take part in tree planting events.
This year in October, KASTAMONU traditionally joined the Forest Week campaign, which was held throughout the Republic of Tatarstan. About 1,800 seedlings of coniferous trees were planted on the territory of the Yelabuga forestry together with employees of the Yelabuga forestry, Executive Committee of Yelabuga and other organizations.
In total, over the past four years, the plant's staff has planted about 1,500 trees on the territories of region's forest farms.
The participation in such events is one of the components of the company's continuous work to preserve forest resources. The main activity of KASTAMONU in this area is constant interaction with suppliers of raw materials, aimed at obtaining FSC certificates. The FSC certificate means that forestry enterprises carrying out logging operations conduct reforestation in excess of logging volumes. There is also a PEFC certificate to regulate logging operations. It ensures the provision of forest products from certified forests. Thus, KASTAMONU activates the development of the FSC and PEFC certification of loggers in Tatarstan, which has a positive impact on the development of the republic's industry.
"One of the strategic components of our company's activity is undoubtedly concern for the environment and improvement of environmental friendliness of production. We actively cooperate with FSC and WWF Russia, support and initiate projects under the auspices of world's leading environmental organizations. The plant is regularly audited for compliance with requirements of the FSC and PEFC Board of Trustees, as well as passes quarterly audits for compliance of products with world environmental standards for formaldehyde emissions," said Ali Kılıç, CEO of KASTAMONU in Russia.
