Introduction to best available technology. An analysis of technology-push instruments in the European Union

Russian industry produced high levels of pollutants and greenhouse gases. This is partly due to outdated industrial plants with inefficient and resource-wasting production methods. Despite a considerable need for modernization, investments in environmentally friendly technologies are lagging. The main reasons for the investment gap are unfavourable environmental and economic policies.

In order to promote BAT in Russia, the GIZ project aimed to publish an analysis of environmental technology-push instruments in the EU, including Germany and the Baltic states.

Description of actual services provided by your staff within the assignment:

Metroeconomica was in charge of elaborating a publication that supports stakeholders in Russia, when discussing and designing environmental push-instruments (e.g., public loans / loan guarantees, publicly owned equity, prices, tax credits and other benefits related to investments, grants and contracts). The target audience of the publication are primarily the Russian Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, as well as the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade and other stakeholders including state ministries and business organizations, such as the Russian Union of Entrepreneurs and Industrialists (RSPP).
