Chubais urged to tighten the law on harmful emissions

Anatoly Chubais, the head of RUSNANO Corporation, criticized the draft law on regulating carbon emissions, which has been under development for several years. In his opinion, the current project is completely “toothless” and it needs to be tightened. Chubais believes that the document, which is now available, can be thrown in the trash, reports RBC.

The head of RUSNANO suggests that the government create a bill that will assume a fee for greenhouse gas emissions: he is sure that even a small fee will activate the work of companies to monitor emissions. Chubais believes that this will also lead to an increase in demand for energy-efficient solutions and incentives for the development of Russian power engineering.
