In the beginning of June 2013 the results of the regional festival "Zodchestvo – present day Saratov", which was held in the frame of international construction forum Olympus EXPO 2013, were announced. Volskcement was claimed the best energy efficient enterprise.

Volskcement took part in the competition of the festival " Zodchestvo – present day Saratov" and presented the project on energy consumption reduction. Nikita Sharov, PR department employee, made the presentation and told about the progress achieved at Holcim plant in Volsk concerning energy efficiency in 2012. In particular, due to measures implemented at the plant, the energy saved would be enough to supply a village with population of 5,000 people for six months.

Within two months the jury experts carefully studied submitted applications and evaluated presentations made by participants. As a result, Volskcement was the winner in the nomination "Best energy efficient enterprise" and received a diploma and the winner’s cup!

The festival is held annually with the support of the Ministry of Construction and Housing of Saratov region, House of Architects, Union of Architects, the Institute Saratovgrazhdanproekt and others.
