Alexey Gordeevich: Mikhail Klimentyev / RIA Novosti
Deputy Prime Minister Alexey Gordeev instructed the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of industry and trade and the Ministry of economy to consider the idea of the Ministry of environment to improve for manufacturers of standards of utilization up to 100 percent of the goods and packaging. About it reports “Kommersant” with reference to the letter agencies in the government.
The Ministry of natural resources proposes to increase the collection of environmental fees from 2.2 billion to 136 billion annually. Of this money, the largest amount of funds is planned to be obtained from producers of electronic goods (47 billion), paper products and cardboard (22 billion rubles), rubber and tyres (17.9 billion roubles), and glass (14.4 billion rubles). It is noted that the increase in standards of utilization may lead to higher prices for goods up to 1.5 percent.
The Department indicated that the increase in standards will allow you to load refining capacities. At the same time raising standards is not known. According to the roadmap, this issue should be considered by the government until mid-2020.
In December 2017, it was reported that the Ministry was discussing with retailers the increased use of paper packaging instead of plastic bags. And in October it was proposed to introduce an environmental fee on plastic bags and support the production of paper packages.
