Strategy of socio-economic development of Russia with a low level of greenhouse gas emissions until 2050

Last updated: 15 February 2022

The Strategy defines measures to ensure by 2030 the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to 70% of the 1990 level, taking into account the absorptive capacity of forests and other ecosystems, and also determines the directions and measures for development with low greenhouse gas emissions until 2050. The Strategy involves the formation of an integrated national system for monitoring and forecasting GHG emissions. 


Among other tasks it also has tasks:

  • to increase in the volume of utilisation of associated petroleum gas, 
  • to develop and implement technologies for the capture, disposal and further use of carbon dioxide and methane, as well as the creation of appropriate infrastructure, engineering and production of the necessary equipment, which ensures the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere in the amount of captured and used carbon dioxide and methane, including flaring.
