Vozrozhdenie Bank supported a community project for the recovery of the Temernik river in Rostov-on-Don and the creation of the longest linear recreational park in Europe. The project involves creation of an environmental monitoring system to track the condition of the river, elimination of all pollution sources, and creation of a park space along with beautification and greenspace expansion.

Employees of VTB Bank (Azerbaijan) joined a city event to plant 650,000 trees as part of the celebration of the 650th Anniversary of the famous poet and thinker Imadeddin Nesimi.
