The following are some of the environmental issues that are facing the green citizens of Russia. What are your thoughts or ideas about these topics and what other issues do you feel should garner some attention from your fellow citizens and politicians?

  • Most Russians do not believe that a rise in the cost of fuels is necessary in order to address the problem of climate change. This bodes well for the country as its economy picks up speed.
  • Russians use about 450 m3 of water each per year, a number that is about one-third of that used by the average American or Canadian.
  • As one of the only countries to see a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions per capita (by $1 GDP) in the past 15+ years, Russia's influence on climate change has shrunk approximately 33%.
  • Russia's vast lands offer many opportunities for environmental sustainability, yet their protected regions grew only 14% from 1990 levels in recent years. This is higher than Canada, but lower than countries like the UK and the United States.
  • Organic foods are beginning to gain a foothold in the Russian Federation, with the sales volume of organic produce slowly increasing.
  • The 250 kg of waste produced by the average household in the Russian Federation remains low compared to EU accession countries, which hovers around 400 kg per year in countries like Estonia and Bulgaria, and 300 kg in Poland and Romania.
  • Of the top 10 most polluted places in the world, four are located in the Russian Federation, and two in former Soviet republics. Many of these sites span several borders so that a total of seven countries are caught in the mess. These sites are most often the result of Cold War chemical weapons centers and the like.
