About the event

Part of European Green Deal policy, the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism will put a carbon price on imports of certain goods from outside the EU. Exporters to Europe will have to pay additional tax, based on the amount of carbon emitted during goods production. For every Russian business, exporting to EU and not meeting European carbon-emission standards, this means potential competitiveness loss because of rising cost.

Join our free webinar “The EU’s Green Deal, emission reduction and opportunities for Western businesses in Russia” on June, 18th 3 p.m. (GMT+3) to find out:
  • What industries in Russia are most affected by the new mechanism
  • How Russian government supports switch of local producers to greener technologies
  • What European carbon emission reduction technologies will be in high demand among Russian manufacturers?

Learn how PepsiCo achieves reduction of operational emissions and United Nations Industrial Development Organization pushes the process of unification of calculation standards.
