Harmful enterprises of Russia will be obliged to work in a new way

State Duma: industrial enterprises will eliminate the accumulated harm in a new way – to eliminate the accumulated environmental damage caused to the environment. This was reported on the website of the lower house of parliament.

The innovation will apply to the production of the first two hazard classes and enterprises where wastes of I and II hazard classes are placed. The list did not include mine workings, boreholes and objects related to the use of subsoil. “The bill will make it possible to establish the responsibility of enterprises for the entire life cycle of facilities,” the State Duma noted.

If the law is passed, industrialists will have to develop a plan five years before the end of the operation of the enterprise, according to which they will eliminate pollution. They will also need to approve the activities from the state ecological expertise. The documents will have to contain an estimate of activities, confirmation of financial security, data on insurance and the reserve fund.

In October 2021, Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Viktoria Abramchenko said that the authorities will begin to use “instruments of coercion” to force the regions handle garbage in a new way. The authorities decided to draw up a “green” rating of the regions, in which the subjects will be ranked according to the effectiveness of the implementation of the reform on the management of municipal solid waste.
