Promoting environmental protection
In 2014, the third Green Marathon of Sberbank took place. The initiative was inspired by the 2014 Sochi Olympics and aimed at promoting sports and healthy lifestyle and protecting the environment. Our project has been expanding with a growing number of participants and cities involved so that this year the marathon was also held in Kazakhstan and Turkey.
In 2014, over 52,000 people in Russia joined the run, and the total number of participants and guests amounted to nearly 90,000. At the end of the event, the participants contributed to the landscaping of Russian cities by planting green alleys in parks and gardens of participating cities. Over 5,000 of new trees have been planted around the country over the three years of the Green Marathon.
