    Aluminium producer RUSAL planted 500 thousand trees in the Irkutsk region as part of it's climate strategy for absorbing greenhouse gases. One of the stages of the large-scale environmental project ‘Green Million’ ended with the planting of an alley in the city of Shelekhov in Russia’s Irkutsk region. The event was attended by the Governor Sergey Levchenko, the Chairman of the regional legislative assembly Sergey Sokol, RUSAL’s Vice-President Elena Bezdenezhnykh, the Managing Director of the Irkutsk aluminum smelter Oleg Buts, and members of the IrkAZ workers’ council. In total, the trees have been planted on the area of over 125 hectares.

    In March 2019, the Company announced Russia's first voluntary initiative for the greenhouse gas absorption, namely planting 1 million trees as a part of a reforestation project. Two areas of the Company’s presence – the Irkutsk region and Krasnoyarsk krai were chosen for the implementation of the project, with 500 thousand pine trees to be planted in each of the regions by the end of the year.

    In June 2019, during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, RUSAL, the Russian Federal Forestry Agency and the Irkutsk Regional Government signed an agreement on the implementation of the project. The Bokhansky district was chosen as the main reforestation site as it was severely hit by wildfires in 2016.
