Enhancing cooperation of the state, business and citizens on matters of environmental protection
The issues of ecosystems and biodiversity conservation cannot be solved by a single company, because the impact — although we have the Trans-Sakhalin pipeline — remains local. Whereas flora and fauna are much more extensive and therefore require the efforts of many parties — Andrey Samatov, Head of the Environmental Division, Sakhalin Energy .
Our main goal and task are to unite the efforts of both state and public organizations in preserving the tiger. The tiger is the indicator for nature and the whole region status. We cannot protect just the tiger: it feeds on ungulates, so we must preserve them also. Animals live in the forest, whereas timber and non-timber forest products, ungulate meat, are the main resource for the population of rural areas and taiga. <...> Our strategic goal is to reach harmony and balance between the population and the tigers. If there is a tiger in the forest, then everything is fine with nature — Sergey Aramilev, General Director, Amur Tiger Centre Autonomous Non-Profit Organization.
Everyone expects that the state or major business will do something, but many stories, like, for example, waste sorting are virtually impossible without everyone’s involvement. <...> People want to help, but they need simple modern formats — Georgiy Konnov, Director of Development of b2b-Products of Electronic Commerce, QIWI .
