Britain applauds Russia’s Commitment to Reach Net-Zero by 2060


London, 15 October 2021 (TDI): Britain has recently welcomed Russia’s commitments to reach net-zero by 2060.

Last month, the EU, Britain, and Italy called upon Russia to commit itself to net zero emissions by 2050 and upgrade its plans to proactively address climate change.

Moreover, they stressed that Russia should make use of the opportunity presented by the COP26 summit and scale up its efforts to reach net-zero.

Russia is one of the biggest producers of hydrocarbons, which are a huge source of greenhouse gas emissions that are responsible for worsening the climate crisis. It is also regarded as the biggest polluter in the world that has not yet tried to set a net-zero target.

Therefore, it has come under direct pressure from the international community for stepping up its efforts to reduce emissions ahead of the United Nations COP26 summit which is expected from Oct. 31 to Nov. 12 in Glasgow, Scotland.

The Russian administration has drafted a new de-carbonization strategy that sets the emissions target of net-zero by 2060.

The newly drafted policy pledges more stringent measures by Russia to tackle climate change. According to the new strategy, Russia will strive to cut down on emissions by 79% by 2050.

The COP26 summit is seen as a crucial occasion to carve out ambitious commitments by the world’s leading countries to accord to the Paris agreement.
