“We recently decided to implement a new program to improve the energy efficiency of the economy until 2035, and this program will be important to achieve our goal of ensuring carbon neutrality, at the latest, by 2060,” Putin said speaking by videoconference at the G20 summit.

The president emphasized that Russia is among the leaders in the global decarbonization process.

“Today, the part of the energy coming from sources practically free of carbon emissions, such as nuclear, hydroelectric, wind and solar plants, exceeds 40%, and taking into account natural gas, the fuel with the lowest carbon content among hydrocarbons, this part is 86%, “Putin stressed.

The president recalled that Russia complies with all its commitments in the framework of the UN Conference on climate change to actively and proactively preserve the climate.

“We constantly implement a policy to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions. We are taking steps to improve the energy efficiency of the economy, modernize the electric power industry and reduce gas emissions associated with oil production,” he stressed. Putin.

In addition, the president stressed the importance of increasing the absorption of greenhouse gases in the world.

“It is not enough simply to reduce the volume of emissions to solve the problem of global warming, it is also necessary to increase the absorption of greenhouse gases,” he said.

According to Putin, Russia will introduce new agricultural technologies to increase the potential for gas absorption by forests, tundra, agricultural lands, seas and swamps.
