Non-food prices will jump in Russia
Non-food products in Russia may rise in price in 2021. If by this time the regulations come into force, implying one hundred percent utilization of consumer goods and packaging waste, household appliances will rise in price by 13%, electronics - by 9%, clothes and shoes - by 2-5%.
The Ministry of Natural Resources will present the draft concept for improving the institute of extended responsibility of producers and importers of goods (ROP) of the Ministry of Natural Resources to the Deputy Prime Minister Victoria Abramchenko by the end of February, until April the Cabinet of Ministers should accept it. As told "Izvestia" Aleksey Fedorov, head of the Delovaya Rossiya trade committee, the new system will significantly change consumer prices, the first to be felt is the non-food segment.
The organization made its forecast, having studied the opinions of 800 retailers. They generally support the concept, but believe that the transition to the complete disposal of used goods should be smoother and longer. Retailers will incur additional costs for the disposal of products and additional storage facilities where the collected packaging will need to be stored.
Work on the final version of the concept is still ongoing, with the business community taking part in the discussion. The Ministry of Natural Resources is discussing with companies how and in what time frame it is necessary to raise recycling standards.
