How to Achieve Carbon Neutrality in the Arctic
We have to project, in terms of the anthropological burden, the projects that are being developed in the field of sustainable shipping and those that Rosatom has in place, into the goals of the Paris Agreement. These are, above all, icebreakers with nuclear, low-emission units. And the carbon footprint when engaging the Northern Sea Route will be much smaller than the alternative routes

How to Achieve Carbon Neutrality in the Arctic
The Russian Federation is implementing a project to create the Arctic's first scientific station, Snezhinka, which will be powered by renewable energy sources at two sites in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District and Murmansk Region. It will be a centre for testing advanced technologies, which will integrate the best solutions. In other words, we see the Arctic region becoming a zone of advanced development and a laboratory for testing and implementing new and important technologies for the entire world

How to Achieve Carbon Neutrality in the Arctic
I would like to outline the increasing role of the Arctic in terms of facilitating the energy transition. Firstly, it [is related to the availability of] rare metals needed for breakthrough technologies, metals that are in demand for the energy transition. Secondly, it is the increasing supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG), which makes it possible to meet the goals and objectives of the Paris Agreement. And speaking of the carbon-free Arctic, we cannot but recall a 2008 report of the U.S. Geological Survey, according to which there are vast reserves in the Arctic, which may be in demand, including for the production of fuels that will be needed during the energy transition. Primarily, hydrogen, ammonia, and methanol

Green Energy in the Arctic
Together with its partners in the Arctic Council, Russia could achieve a great deal in terms of integrating our technology and approaches. One striking example is the Snezhinka [Snowflake – ed.] research station, which will operate on renewable energy sources. The project is set to be implemented in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District and Murmansk Region

Green Energy in the Arctic
The Russian Arctic has become a key element in global supply chains. And as the transition to a carbon-neutral economy continues, so demand will increase for all the resources the Arctic possesses in abundance. These include rare-earth metals and liquefied natural gas. We can see that Gazprom, Novatek, and other companies are running production operations which are required during the energy transition to new forms of fuel, such as hydrogen, ammonia, and methanol. We are able to offer global transport solutions which will reduce mankind’s overall impact on the environment. Rosatom, for example, is planning to establish a link between Europe and Asia via the Northern Sea Route

We consider it important not only to take into account the vulnerability of the Arctic to climate change, but also to use its natural energy transport potential. In turn, this will serve to fulfill the goals and objectives arising from the Paris Agreement, as well as the agenda for sustainable development until 2030, we plan to promote the widespread introduction of environmentally friendly technologies in all economy spheres. We plan to organize separate forums on climate change and the melting of permafrost in the Arctic, on pollution prevention at sea and on land
