The Ministry of Economic Development has developed a bill on carbon collection. It involves charging companies that exceed the permissible level of greenhouse gas emissions. First of all, this will affect utility providers, which may lead to an increase in tariffs for the population.

As reported "News", members of the Federation Council did not support the proposed draft law. They fear that the new fee will negatively affect the growth rate of the economy and create an additional fiscal burden on the business. The innovation will affect the fuel and energy complex, which means that the new costs of enterprises will fall on consumers. According to experts, for each ruble of the collection there will be 1,2 ruble of the increase in tariff.

By the 2030 year, under an international agreement, Russia was supposed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% compared to the 1990 year. According to the Ministry of Natural Resources, this plan has already been exceeded: by 2017, emissions were reduced by 49%, and no additional measures are needed.
