Launched in 2019, Formula Forest is a comprehensive conservation and reforestation project combining reforestation activities with environmental education initiatives for the benefit of Tyumen Oblast’s residents. The project’s target audience includes local residents, school teachers and students, and SIBUR’s own employees.

Volunteering campaigns

Since 2019, the project has been complemented by annual volunteer campaigns involving seedling planting. Over this period, volunteers have planted more than 7,000 pine seedlings and restored 2 hectares of forest on the grounds of the Tobolsk Forestry District. More than 110 people have taken part in these activities, including representatives of the management of SIBUR’s Tobolsk-based plants and Tyumen Oblast’s Forestry Department, SIBUR’s corporate volunteers, and activists of school forestry teams. These campaigns have enjoyed support of Tyumen Oblast’s Forestry Department.

In 2021, seedling plantings will be taking place in Tobolsk, Tomsk, and Perm.

Environmental education

Tobolsk’s schoolchildren have been given an opportunity to attend educational activities organized specially for them. In 2019, SIBUR working in tandem with Tyumen State University held forestry-themed eco-classes for 5th and 6th graders. In addition, lectures were given to biology teachers expected to teach eco-lessons on their own going forward using the methodological materials and guidelines developed as part of the project. 


On March 21, 2022, in celebration of the International Day of Forests, SIBUR launched a grant contest for schools and school forestry teams in the Republic of Bashkortostan, Nizhegorodskaya, Tomsk and Tyumen Oblasts. The deadline for submitting applications is April 20, 2022.

2020 saw the very first grant contest of practical projects take place resulting in 5 of the initiatives of Tyumen Oblast’s schools getting support. As the result of their implementation of the supported projects, the students have managed to:

  • set up a school-based vermiculture farm;
  • clean up the eco-trail leading to the area’s unique relict pine tree;
  • expand the school's eco-park;
  • create an experimental plot with a seasonal greenhouse;
  • plant a tree and shrub garden on the school’s grounds.

2021 saw the second grant contest take place with the aim of supporting research projects focusing on forests research, protection, conservation and restoration. As a result, 6 winning forest research projects were selected.
