Russia strives for carbon-neutral status – but no deadlines until 2023

Russia wants to achieve carbon neutral status, but is not in a position to set concrete deadlines for achieving it – as the European Union and China have already done – until 2023, Deputy Prime Minister Viktoria Abramchenko said.

    “We want to be carbon-neutral.  But in order for us to make such a declaration, we have to take account of all elements, as well as plans to transform different sectors,” Abramchenko told reporters.

    “And in the interim, these elements might be different and the absorption capacities of ecosystems will also be different. We are moving forward on this from the standpoint of objective calculations. But to declare today, in June 2021, that we will become carbon-neutral in 2050 is something I cannot do. Because I have to work on the basis of objective data.”    

Abramchenko said she believed that by 2023 “we will be able to speak in an objective fashion.  At that point, we will understand in what year we clearly will become carbon-neutral. And it is possible that this will happen by 2050.”
