In response to the global climate crisis, countries across the world are having to consider the risks and challenges linked to climate change when mapping out their development. More and more countries are introducing national regulations on greenhouse gas emissions, from voluntary offsetting programmes and harsh quotas to market-based approaches and emission taxes. Using sound investment decisions and the country’s unique natural resources, Russian industry can fully realize its potential in not only ensuring climate resilience but also maintaining economic growth and competitiveness while decarbonizing. What do practical opportunities to make effective use of the potential of Russian industry look like? What technological, investment, and regulatory changes need to be made?
