ATB plants 45 hectares of forest in four regions of Ukraine

ATB Corporation, which manages a national network of the same name with more than 1,200 stores in all regions of the country, planted 45 hectares of forest in Ivano-Frankivsk, Mykolaiv, Zaporizhzhia, and Luhansk regions in the thirtieth year of Ukraine's independence.

The press service of the corporation reported this.

"To implement this project, the ATB Charitable Foundation purchased 180,000 seedlings and seeds plant of trees. As part of this eco-initiative, new forest plantations were created in four regions of Ukraine for the thirtieth anniversary of Ukraine's independence in November. Mykolaiv, Zaporizhzhia and Ukraine-controlled parts of the Luhansk region received 15 hectares of forest each, where more than 33,000, 24,000, and almost 23,000 young tree seedlings were planted, respectively. And in six districts of the Ivano-Frankivsk region, more than 98 thousand young trees on 30 hectares of forest lands are already taking root," ATB reported.

Borys Markov, CEO of ATB, said the company had exceeded a plan to plant forests in the country.

"Our initiative received an active response from forest managers and full support from them: we were so enthusiastic about this project that instead of the 30 hectares of forests announced for the 30th anniversary of Ukraine, as many as 45 were planted! We could not remain indifferent to the restoration of those forests that needed human help and socially responsible business the most," said Borys Markov.

The eco-initiative of the largest national network of discount stores "ATB" and its charitable fund was implemented jointly with the regional state forests and the State Agency of Forest Resources. Next year, ATB plans to continue a large-scale deforestation project in all regions of Ukraine.
