We have developed a green taxonomy manual. […] It includes a list of projects that are considered ‘green’. […] The main segments in the taxonomy are waste processing, including both solid waste and sewage, as well as green energy and green transport. I would like to stress that we should also consider nuclear energy green because it is low-carbon. In addition, the main segments include green building and the industrial use of low emission technologies. […] Based on a discussion during a working group, the taxonomy was refined according to a number of criteria and an understanding was formed of what the specific emission should be. […] The manual also contains a section on adaptation projects. It includes projects in traditional energy, transport infrastructure, and industrial sectors – copper, nickel, and lead — Alexey Miroshnichenko, First Deputy Chairman, Member of the Board, VEB.RF.
We are drawing up recommendations on how climate risks, along with other risks or through other risks, should be taken into account by banks and financial companies that invest in various assets, including green ones — Ksenia Yudaeva, First Deputy Governor, Bank of Russia .
The key for us is to improve the quality of life of people in the cities where we have a presence. This is the most important incentive in terms of how we view our projects. This concerns all emissions that come with, for example, aluminium projects — Oleg Mukhamedshin, RUSAL Director for Strategy and Investor Relations .
The government’s job is to create a methodology and playbook for the market. […] We have a roadmap to support green finance. We are already discussing it with our colleagues from the Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank. […] We have already taken some steps and are trying to synchronize Russian taxonomy within the framework of the Asian Parliamentary Assembly. We want to create an investment methodological centre. […] Our job is to comprehensively approach the entire climate package. We want to complete the roadmap within two months — Ilya Torosov, Deputy Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation.
