In total, about 150 volunteers participated, and together they collected about 300 bags of rubbish. At the end, the most active participants received gifts from KPMG.

Astana also held a city-wide volunteer Saturday in which KPMG employees took an active part. The event was supported by Astana's Natural Resources and Natural Management Regulation Department and the city's Mayor's Office. The day included tree planting, organised with the help of PosadiDerevo.kz. Together, the volunteers planted more than 230 saplings. The volunteers were more than happy to take part in such an important event for the city, as well as simply to spend time in the open air together.
