The Climate Governance Initiative Russia, in partnership with legal partner – DLA Piper, is delighted to invite board members to the exclusive offline discussion «Carbon tax: implications for Russian companies. Will it affect everyone equally? What do boards of the future need to know?» on May 25, 2021.
The EU will introduce a carbon tax on imports of GHG-intensive goods in 2023. This could affect roughly 40 percent of Russian exports. According to various estimates, Russian companies will have to pay the EU between €6 and €50 billion per year. Meanwhile, the European Commission has estimated that the carbon tax will generate between €5 billion and €14 billion in annual revenue for the EU budget.
We have invited leading experts and market participants to discuss real-world scenarios, risks and opportunities for mitigating the impact of the carbon tax on Russian businesses.
We will also look ahead and explore global climate and economic trends, as well as new challenges and opportunities that could arise in the medium term. How does Russia fit into this vision of the future? What qualities will board members need to have?
