Russia could come to global climate talks in Glasgow, Scotland, in November with a 2060 goal of carbon neutrality, marking a reversal in President Vladimir Putin’s stance on climate change. 

Such a plan is under consideration in the Kremlin, said a person familiar with situation who asked not to be named discussing information that isn’t public. Russia is also weighing a pledge to cut net carbon dioxide emissions by 79% from 2019 to 2050, according to a draft document seen by Bloomberg News.
