Head of the Ministry of Economic Development: it is premature to introduce CO2 emission quotas

The head of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia Maxim Reshetnikov said that in the near future Russia does not plan to introduce quotas for CO2 emissions and payments for them. While the authorities plan to follow up carbon experiment on Sakhalin.

According to INTERFAX-FAR EAST, Maxim Reshetnikov shared information on the future of climate programs at the Sakhalin Oil and Gas Forum. Several issues are preventing the introduction of quotas. It is not yet clear how the quotas will be distributed between the companies. Several options are being considered: reduce emission quotas for all enterprises by 5% or use international practices. In any case, the burden on enterprises will be different.

In addition, you need to take into account the work that some companies have already done to reduce emissions over the past two to three years. Most often, these are the largest taxpayers, which must also be taken into account.

Reshetnikov also noted that the main goal is not to take money for CO2 emissions, but to set up companies to work so that they independently introduce some new technologies in this area.

Moreover, one must remember that the consumer will pay for everything: business, population, budget. So now the Ministry of Economic Development prefers not to rush into the climate agenda so that there is no additional payment due to such initiatives.
