Kievskaya Ploshchad joins The Earth Hour Event

22 March 2021

On March 27, as part of the international event Earth Hour, facilities of Kiyevskaya Ploshchad Group of Companies will traditionally turn off the illumination of their buildings for one hour. Participation in this event will demonstrate the support and solidarity with the World Wide Fund for Nature and emphasize the intent of Kiyevskaya Ploshchad to attract attention to caring and responsible attitude to nature and preservation of the planetary resources.

From 08:30 p.m. until 09:30 p.m. (Moscow time) the lights of Radisson Collection Hotel, Moscow (Ukraina Hotel), Slavyanskaya Hotel, Evropeysky Shopping and Entertainment Center, DEPO Fine-Dining Quarter, New Arbat 21 Business Center and Grand Furniture Center in Khimki, and Grand YuG on Prazhskaya Metro Station will be turned off. Attention to ecology and caring attitude to nature represent the crucial business elements for Kiyevskaya Ploshchad Group of Companies. Every year the holding keeps developing its social and environmental responsibility strategy using a “green” approach in the construction and interior design of buildings.

Thousands of people working for Kiyevskaya Ploshchad make their daily contribution to the environmental protection supporting the separate waste collection and collecting used coffee capsules and caps for recycling. Battery recycling containers are installed in the staff canteens, and car washing stations use recycling water supply.

Earth Hour is the most large-scale environmental event on our planet, which involves more than 2 billion people all over the globe. Thousands of architectural monuments, such as the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, the Colosseum turn off their illumination for one hour. In Russia, buildings of the Kremlin of Moscow, Red Square, Saint Basil’s Cathedral and some 2,000 other Moscow buildings join the Earth Hour event. Every year all member countries raise one of the important environmental topics. In 2021, the event topic from the WWF will be the ecological information transparency.

 

God Nisanov, Board Chairman of Kiyevskaya Ploshchad Group of Companies:

“Kiyevskaya Ploshchad Group of Companies has been participating in the Earth Hour for several years already. In solidarity, lights of the iconic skyscraper of Radisson Collection Hotel, Moscow, which is well-known as the Ukraina Hotel, and our other facilities will be turned off for one hour, same as the illumination of hundreds of the world architectural monuments. Such events unite people and develop new mentality based on the rational use of natural resources and conscious attitude to their preservation for future generations. The social responsibility of our business is not limited to this event: we launch our own social and environmental initiatives at numerous facilities of the holding on a regular basis.”
