Sber opened Russia's first environmental office in Khabarovsk at 21 Vorovskogo Street. All processes in this department are aimed at minimizing environmental impact.

According to the press service of the Far Eastern Bank of Sberbank, 25% of the materials used in the construction of the office are recycled materials. The paving stones in the surrounding area are made using recycled polyethylene and plastic, the rugs are made of worn-out tires that were used on Sberbank's official vehicles. The tables and chairs are made from recycled plastic and the furniture is made from natural wood. The children's area in the office is made of environmentally friendly and natural materials, in addition, children are taught the basics of ecology in a playful way.

The office has equipment that allows to reduce the use of resources - water, heat and electricity. The water supply system is equipped with equipment that reduces the pressure of the supplied water, thereby reducing its volume. Motion sensors and LED lamps are used everywhere, and thanks to panoramic windows on both sides, natural lighting is preserved in the office. Unnecessary documents without confidential information will be shredded in a shredder and used as filler in a box when packing fragile items in the Sberlogistics zone. And expired bank cards will be sent for recycling, and not destroyed, as it was before.

In addition, the eco-office has the first fandomat in the Far East - a device that accepts and squeezes plastic bottles, as well as bins for separate waste collection. There is also a vending machine for customers where you can pour coffee into your mug. In this branch of Sberbank, in the future, various environmental activities will be carried out for schoolchildren and residents of the microdistrict.

As the first deputy chairman of the board of Sberbank PJSC Alexander Vedyakhin noted, the eco-office in Khabarovsk embodies the best "green" practices. This year, Sberbank plans to open 11 such offices throughout the country - one in each regional bank, and to introduce individual eco-elements in almost a thousand offices throughout Russia.

Andrey Cherkashin, Chairman of the Far Eastern Bank of Sberbank, said that Sber was able to organize the work of a full-fledged bank branch with a neutral "carbon footprint". In the course of work, several dozen environmental initiatives of employees were applied, as a result of their implementation, it was possible to minimize damage to the environment both at the stage of building the facility, and during its operation.
