Vyacheslav Fetisov, First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Ecology, Allocation of Resources and Environmental Protection, said that Russia does not intend to place premises from the Paris climate room. His words are reported by TASS.
He added: “Russia <…> continues to meet all commitments under the UN Implementation Framework on the use of consumption.”
Fetisov called global climate change in conditions of increased danger to mankind. “The role of Russia in this process is unique: its natural ecosystem is protected from the climate problems of the entire planet,” he added.
According to the deputy head of the environmental committee of the Duma, Russia is a “global environmental donor”: almost completely absorbing large volumes of greenhouse gases.
The head of the State Duma Committee on the Environment, Natural Resources and Environmental Protection, Dmitry Kobylkin, said that Russia would “consistently and pragmatically” take into account the statistics on carbon neutrality, that is, draw attention to natural resources and the environment, which is the driver of global warming. Vladimir Putin set the level of carbon neutrality by 2060.
The Paris climate conference is considered acceptable. At that time, the first ever environmental commitment was signed with steps that were committed to be followed to reduce harmful conditions for environmental conditions.
Among the Paris Agreement, keeping the planet’s temperature rise “below 2 degrees Celsius” (and aiming for 1.5 degrees Celsius) compared to time before the industrial revolution and reducing the harm from greenhouse gases are drivers of global warming. by 2050. The fulfillment of the objectives is legally binding. The agreement was signed by 197 countries, including Russia.
