I assure you that we will pass a law on packaging very quickly. […] Many years ago there was almost no packaging, but now everything is in packages. It’s necessary, it’s convenient, but it causes clear damage to nature, especially plastic. Whoever harms nature must pay. Industry should pay more, especially packaging manufacturers — Sergei Ivanov, Special Presidential Representative for Environmental Protection, Ecology and Transport.
Thermal recycling is efficient. The current technologies ensure zero emissions. [...] They leave behind carbon and dust. This is the minimum volume of waste that is further used in contrast to sorting. All technologies must be preserved. Depending on the market conditions, a region must decide which technology to choose — Denis Manturov, Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation.
We believe that Renault Group, which is the undisputed leader in the use of recycled materials in the automotive industry, thereby creating cheaper cars and reducing their weight, will pass this experience on to AVTOVAZ — Sergey Skvortsov, Member of the Board of Directors, AVTOVAZ.
We have to sacrifice our time, and we have to be responsible and involved. […] Packaging manufacturers need to sacrifice their profits. […] We won’t survive without this — Svetlana Radionova, Head, Federal Service for Supervision of Natural Resources.
