Reduction of emissions from vehicles

Project target

The transport
to make better cities

We are committed to make Russia’s urban transit systems more effective and comfortable for all: car owners, straphangers, cyclists and, certainly, pedestrians. We also promote environment-friendly vehicles such as cycles, electric and hybrid vehicles in order to reduce GHG emissions. In doing so, we implement pilot projects in Kazan and Kaliningrad.
