Russia Eyes Windfall From Greenhouse Gas Quotas
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia, whose carbon dioxide emissions fell by a third over the last decade, could make big money from selling unused pollution quotas if such a market is established, a government official said on Thursday.
"Once the market is established, Russia's share will be some 50 percent of demand," Vsevolod Gavrilov, a Ministry of Trade and Economic Development expert, told Reuters on the sidelines of a conference on market mechanisms of a global climate treaty.
"Russia may receive from a few hundred dollars to $5-6 billion per year, depending on market conditions," he said.
