22 October 2021

More than 60,000 m2 of Lake Baikal shoreline has been cleaned up by employees of Angarsk Petrochemical Company, an enterprise of Rosneft Oil Company’s oil refining complex.

The environmental campaign was held in the Bolshiye Koty settlement, which is located in the Pribaikalsky National Park, one of the most popular tourist routes on the Great Baikal Trail, where a lot of household waste accumulates. Overall, Angarsk volunteers took out about 240 kg of rubbish.

The enterprise took part in an environmental campaign to coincide with Oil and Gas Industry Workers Day this September. Workers planted around 200 lilac, poplar and rowan tree seedlings in the Angarsk urban district.
