MOSCOW, May 27. /TASS/. Russia is ready to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 25-30% by 2030, Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Sergei Donskoi said at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin and Government members on Wednesday.
"We’re ready to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 25-30% by 2030 versus the 1990 level," he said, adding that it’s possible on the assumption of maximum absorptive capacity of Russian woods.
The Minister also proposed statutorily obliging all countries to implement plans on cutting greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, the countries should undertake commitments to gradually shift from coal to gas, Donskoi said. According to the Russian Economic Development Ministry’s calculations, by 2030 the economic growth will no longer influence the volume of greenhouse gas emissions if Russia’s proposals are passed, the Minister added.
