CO2 knows no bounds


On February 09, the AEB held a discussion on the environmental project «Restoration of peatlands as a means for offsetting carbon. Economic and Ecosystem benefits for businesses», the main features and problems of environmental projects in general in Russia, including greenwashing.

Ernesto Ferlenghi, Chairman of the Steering Group on the AEB Green Initiative welcomed the participants of the webinar.

Russia has adopted the official taxonomy of «green» projects and thus declared itself as an important player in the international arena.

The Russian green projects market has great potential and may become one of the largest in the world.

We are grateful to all the speakers for their brilliant presentations and very interesting discussion!
