ERSO took part in the "Green System" project

At the site of the city ecological holiday "Green System", residents and guests of Ufa and Nagaevo could not only get acquainted with the concept of conscious consumption, but also immediately take the first step towards a more environmentally friendly life: bring plastic, waste paper, glass, metal and tetrapack to the collection point for secondary resources - after the holiday, recyclables went for processing to make something new and useful out of it. Things in good condition that can still serve new owners: clothes, jewelry, indoor plants and books - the participants of the holiday brought to the free exchange fair and immediately found something suitable for themselves.

The organizers have prepared an educational and entertainment program for all ages: a master class on sewing eco-bags, an eco-quest with a drawing of eco-prizes, a museum of recycled materials and reusable alternatives. The title partner of the "Green System", the MTS digital ecosystem, provided the participants of the holiday with the opportunity to calculate their environmental footprint in a digital environmental game and find ways to reduce it.

The city ecological holiday in Nagaevo is part of the All-Russian environmental education project "Green System", the purpose of which is to popularize the practice of separate waste collection and responsible attitude to the environment through city ecological holidays. By the end of the year, 40 project events will cover 10 regions of Russia. On the same weekend, Green System events, in addition to Ufa, were held in St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Rostov-on-Don and Krasnodar.

“Care for the environment is one of the priorities of our Foundation. We hold sports events with the meaning of Run #ZaFores and Step #ZaFores and plant trees for each participant as part of the project of the ECA Movement “Southern Forest Belt of Russia”. We support "green" projects of partner companies and motivate them to launch new ones. On our flagship educational platform "Lift to the Future", anyone can take online courses on eco-habits. Green System is a new format aimed at developing regional eco-volunteering and environmental education of the younger generation: after all, good habits are most easily formed in childhood,” says Alexander Torovtsev, curator of social projects at the Sistema Charitable Foundation.

The Green System project involves partner companies of the Sistema Charitable Foundation — the largest employers in the country, who make plans for decades to come and pay great attention to the environmental agenda as one of the pillars of sustainable development.

“For me, as a specialist in the field of environmental protection, such events are especially significant. In the company, we are systematically working to improve the culture of our employees in the field of ecology. But in order to keep our planet green, it is necessary that every person understands the consequences and knows the basic principles of waste collection and recycling, not only at enterprises, but also in everyday life. We went on a holiday with a child. He was delighted with the master classes, took part in the lottery. I thank the Sistema Charitable Foundation, the ERA Foundation and the MTS digital ecosystem for helping to foster a culture of conscious consumption, develop eco-habits from an early age and “draw” more and more people into the movement of eco-activists,” notes Marina Kozlovskaya, Head of the Occupational Safety, Industrial Safety and Ecology Department of OP UTZ of ERSO Holding.

“The BEGC Group of Companies pays great attention to environmental issues that are part of the ESG policy. Ecologists of the company annually become winners and prize-winners of federal competitions and ratings. Bashkir electric grid operators regularly participate in various environmental campaigns: "Water of Russia", "Garden of Memory", "Green Bashkiria", "Hand over waste paper - save a tree" and others. Therefore, the idea of holding an ecological holiday "Green System" found a response in the team. The event is certainly useful and promising in terms of improving environmental literacy,” comments Marat Bikbaev, head of the public relations department of Bashkirenergo LLC.

“The Medsi-ProMedicina network of clinics in Ufa responded with pleasure to participating in the Green System eco-holiday. Our company and its employees have always adhered to the principles of lean production, with attention to natural resources. Therefore, this environmental event resonated with the staff - it is in line with our principles and values. We enjoyed visiting it and took part in all the activities. We thank the organizers for reminding us of the importance of preserving the ecosystem,” shares Svetlana Pogoretskaya, General Director of MEDSI-UFA LLC.
