About the product

The objective of this legally binding international instrument is to enhance public access to information through the establishment of coherent, nationwide pollutant release and transfer registers. Although regulating information on pollution, rather than pollution directly, the protocol is expected to exert significant pressure, as no company will want to be identified as among the biggest polluters. This publication contains the full text and annexes, in Russian, English and French, of the Protocol.
