Russian industry could achieve carbon neutrality before 2060, possibly in 2050 - Manturov

Moscow. Dec 21 (Interfax) - The Russian Industry and Trade Ministry expects that industry will be able to achieve carbon neutrality prior to 2060, perhaps in 2050, head of the ministry Denis Manturov said during a plenary session of the State Duma.

"The core industries, first and foremost steel production, chemicals, should see the implementation of a package of measures that will generate a tangible result. I believe that we won't even have to wait for 2060. We are setting ourselves the goal of reaching those goals that have been set by the Russian president by 2050," Manturov said.
