The company plans to take very active part in Fund’s activities. In particular, within the frame of corporative social responsibility Aeroexpress will act as a partner for “The day without cars”, an international event which takes place annually, on September 22nd.
Jointly with Russian Railways, JSC, Aeroexpress is solving a significant social objective on relieving the principal motor highways of Moscow and those of the Moscow oblast as well as regarding improvement of environmental situation. In terms of cars, Aeroexpress annually relieves the city from 41 thousand kilometers of traffic congestions and 60 thousand tons of harmful emissions. “The day without cars” is a symbolic international action aimed at demonstrating possible alternatives to the car, for instance riding by train.
Mr. Rustam Akiniyazov, Aeroexpress’ commercial Director stresses, “Joining WWF corresponds with the policy of corporative social responsibility adopted in our company. We have a hope that co-operation with the Fund will facilitate us in attracting consumers’ attention to environmental problems at which solving we were targeted when having offered aeroexpresses to consumers as an alternative to motor vehicles”.
