Russia will considerably reduce CO2 emissions in 2030- Putin

Russia is taking active measures to address global warming. Our country is now one of the world leaders for the rate at which we are reducing our economy’s energy consumption – by 33.4 percent from 2000–2012. Through implementation of our programme Energy Efficiency and Energy Sector Development, we expect to be able to reduce the economy’s energy intensity by a further 13.5 percent by 2020, RF President Vladimir Putin, took part (November 30) in the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the 11th session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP), said, Caspian Energy News ( reports with reference to the press service of the head of state of Russia.

By 2030, we plan to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 70 percent of the 1990 base level. We will achieve this through measures that include use of breakthrough energy-saving solutions and new nanotechnology. For example, Russia has developed technology for using carbon nanotube based additives. Experts estimate that use of this technology in Russia alone will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 160–180 million tonnes by 2030. Of course, we are open for reciprocal exchange of these kinds of developments, Vladimir Putin said.
