RUSSIAN CARBON DIOXIDE TAX


Item #d93jun79

Plans to institute a carbon dioxide tax by autumn were announced by Russian Environment Minister Viktor Danilov-Danilyan at an April conference in Lucerne, Switzerland. The tax is expected to encourage energy efficiency and lower carbon dioxide emissions; proceeds from it will supply badly needed funds for environmental problems. A similar tax was announced by Switzerland. At this second Environment for Europe conference, sponsored by the U.N. Economic Commission for Europe, the Council for Europe and the Swiss government, environment ministers from more than 40 nations in Europe and North America agreed on a declaration recommending a European carbon dioxide tax. (See Intl. Environ. Rptr., pp. 321-323, May 5 1993.)
