Gazprom Neft Middle East B.V. pays serious attention to supporting environmental initiatives in its operational areas. From the start of field development program in 2013, GNME annually supports project of greening. This project is important due to serious climate changes in the region as trees and plants prevent deterioration of soil, emerge of dust storms and simply improve the landscape. Planting of trees is a highly valued tradition of the Kurds, who worked hard for centuries to turn these deserted rocky lands into green gardens.

For the last five years, GNME has sponsored purchasing and planting of more than 12 000 trees at Garmian and Shakal Blocks.

The sponsorship project of Kifri Botanic Garden is also worth mentioning in the frames of this project. GNME provided financial support to the staff of the Botanic Garden, purchased soil and fertilizers.
