Russian legislation envisages payment for negative (harmful) environmental impact (NEI). The necessity of such payment is provided by the Federal law No 7-FZ from 10.01.2002 “On environmental protection”. The types of NEI, for which payment is required, include emissions of pollutants into the air by stationary and portable objects, discharges of pollutants into the surface and underground water bodies and disposal of production and consumption wastes. The current procedure takes into account the rights of companies to receive so-called benefits with regard to the NEI fee: the obliged to pay this fee parties have the right to make adjustments, i.e. to reduce the amount of this fee. Yunona Sizykh, senior consultant at the Alliance Legal CG, Legal Practice Department, spoke to our magazine about the cases when a company can count on these privileges, what exactly they are, and illustrated the examples of court practice in this area.
