The Eurasian Economic Commission hosted the first meeting of the High-Level Working Group to elaborate proposals of the EAEU member states on the climate agenda on Thursday, 16 September 2021, chaired by Andrey Slepnev, Member of the Board (Minister) on Trade of the Eurasian Economic Commission.

The Russian Ministry of Economic Development was represented by Deputy Minister Dmitry Volvach.

During the meeting, the Parties reaffirmed their commitment to common goals on the climate track and the fact that the consolidation of efforts of the Five countries on this issue is fully in line with current economic development trends and is designed to contribute to sustainable and inclusive growth of the Union's countries.
It was also noted that in the current context of "green transition", the EAEU has a significant potential to develop cooperation on this track, and the countries of the organisation need to work out common approaches on the climate agenda.

"The world is presenting us with new global challenges and it is clear that we need to seek answers to them together, based on the goals of our integration bloc. It is important that we are prepared to develop common approaches to the global climate agenda in order to ensure technological transformation and bring the Union to a new integration level," Dmitry Volvach said.

The High-Level Working Group on Harmonising Approaches of the EAEU Member States within the Climate Agenda was established at the initiative of the Russian Ministry of Economic Development. A decision to this effect was taken during a meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council in August 2021.
The next meeting of the Working Group will take place in October 2021.
