On World Environment Day - June 5, the traditional Sberbank race will take place within the framework of the Green Marathon project. The action will take place in park zones of 180 cities. Registration has already started.

According to the press service of the Far Eastern Bank of Sberbank, among the participating cities are Vladivostok, Khabarovsk, Blagoveshchensk. Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Birobidzhan, Magadan and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky can also join the online campaign. A complete list of cities can be viewed on the website greenmarathon.ru.

The Green Marathon was organized jointly with the Sberbank Charitable Foundation "Contribution to the Future" and the SberVmeste platform. As part of the project, participants will plant 180 seedlings in honor of the 180th anniversary of Sberbank. This action was organized in support of the project "Russian Southern Forest Belt" to combat desertification in the southern regions of Russia. Everyone can support this action by participating in the Green Marathon and its environmental initiatives by donating funds for environmental projects on the SberVmeste portal.

You can register to participate in the project by downloading the mobile application from the link https://gmarathon.page.link/partner, as well as in Google Play and App Store services.

A measure of the speed and destructiveness of a person's impact on the environment is called the ecological footprint. Humanity's ecological footprint is 1,6 times greater than the planet's capabilities According to the president and chairman of the board of Sberbank, German Gref, the eco-trail from a disposable paper cup is equivalent to 550 grams of CO2.

“If you drink coffee once every day from such utensils, then up to 200 kg of CO2 is accumulated per year. This can be offset by planting a single tree. With the help of the Green Marathon, we want to convey the ideas of nature protection and conscious consumption to all residents of Russia and preserve the attractiveness of our planet for posterity, ”he added.

According to Petr Polozhevets, Executive Director of the Sberbank Charitable Foundation "Contribution to the Future", it is very important that the tasks of environmental education can be solved through active, pedagogically justified actions that will lead to the emergence of new forests throughout Russia.
