Steel Tree, an NLMK grant programme, supports active local residents and their initiatives
In 2019, the programme was rolled out in five regions where NLMK Group operates: the Lipetsk, Kaluga, Belgorod, and Sverdlovsk Regions, as well as Altai Territory. The Steel Tree selection commission reviewed more than 400 ideas aimed at a more favourable urban environment, implementation of social, environmental, and educational action.
In 2018, the NLMK Group Steel Tree grant programme won the ‘Ecological Culture. Peace and Harmony’ international competition, held by the Vernadsky Non-governmental Ecological Foundation. The programme came first in the ‘Social initiatives aimed at promoting an ecological culture’ category.
In the same year, a project of the Steel Tree programme for the removal of debris from the Studenovsky Quarry and laying trails for mountain biking training sessions in Lipetsk won in the ‘Best Eco-volunteer Squad’ national competition in the ‘Say no to garbage!’ category.
