Back to all Network Members

The Russian Chelyabinsk district becomes the third BreatheLife member in the Russian Federation. The district, including the cities Chelyabinsk, Magnitogorsk and Zlatoust, is moving toward WHO air quality guidelines and plans to reduce air pollution by at least 20 per cent in the next few years. The plan includes reducing emissions in transport, household waste management, the chemical industry, green electricity generation and energy efficiency.

We commit to undertake activities to reduce emissions of contaminants into air, increasing the number of ecological public transport, improving solid waste management, promoting clean energy and supporting the goals of the BreatheLife campaign.
