Russia has approved an action plan to reduce the negative impact of coal industry enterprises on the environment. Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers Victoria Abramchenko approved the corresponding "road map".

According to the press service of the government of the Russian Federation, the action plan is aimed at introducing technologies for closed coal transshipment that are harmless to human health. This year, a full audit of the problems of legal regulation, environmental activities of enterprises in coal mining will be carried out, a list of amendments to the legislation will be formed to improve regulation in this area.

The plan's activities will affect coal mining companies in 18 regions of the country, including the Irkutsk, Sakhalin, Amur, Magadan regions, in the Trans-Baikal, Primorsky, Khabarovsk Territories, in Chukotka, as well as in Buryatia and Yakutia. Abramchenko noted that the largest number of potentially dangerous objects in the Far East is located in the Primorsky Territory.

The new system of regulation in the field of environmental protection presupposes the issuance of integrated environmental permits to coal mining enterprises. Rosprirodnadzor must issue them by the end of 2022 to enterprises that have the greatest negative impact on the environment - their contribution to pollutant emissions is at least 60%. The rest of the coal mining enterprises will receive such a permit by the end of 2024.
