The support of NET4GAS Closer to Nature for ČSOP also extends to hands-on conservationist work

31.01.2018 NET4GAS Closer to Nature is primarily known as a programme that unlocks interesting sites of nature for the general public by building educational trails, observation decks, and other diverse infrastructure. Alongside the Czech Union for Nature Conservation, the programme thus compels citizens to venture into the great outdoors in ways that are at once entertaining and educational. Beyond that, the Closer to Nature programme also supports concrete measures aimed at the protection of nature and landscapes in practice. The projects completed in the course of last year beautifully illustrate the range of what conservationists have been able to achieve (often in their spare time) thanks to the programme.

New Educational Trail in Kokořínsko Reserve Presents 'Treasures of Harasov'

25.11.2017 One of the attractive parts of the Kokořínsko quarry is Harasov, a water reservoir on the Pšovka hemmed in by a rock face. This place, and the village of Bosyně, about 3.5 km away, are now connected via a new educational trail, "Poklady Harasova" (Treasures of Harasov), designed to highlight a number of local 'secrets' and to captivate and entertain the entire family. This trail marks the 86th addition to Closer to Nature, the joint programme of the Czech Union for Nature Conservation and NET4GAS.

About the project

NET4GAS is both a reliable and safe gas transmission system operator, and at the same time pursues a responsible policy aimed at protecting nature and the environment for future generations. The commercial operations of NET4GAS are very closely connected with the issue of nature conservation, as during both the construction and the operation of its gas infrastructure it must comply with strict environmental standards. In fact, its concern for the natural environment extends even beyond the requirements of legislation, meaning rather a question of corporate social responsibility. It is this principle which underlies the long term strategy of corporate philanthropy and sponsorship which has been implemented under the programme NET4GAS Closer to Nature since 2007.
