The ranking reflects developments in the field of ecology in all regions of Russia from June 1 to August 31, 2022. According to the results of last summer, the absolute leader is the Tambov region.

According to the results of the study, the Tula region was on the 70th line of the environmental classification among 85 subjects of the Russian Federation. At the same time, there is no dynamic in the region, that is to say, the indicators have not changed since last year. The environmental index of the Tula region was 45/55, the industrial-ecological index was 46/54 and the socio-ecological index was 74/26. Finally, the composite environmental index is 57/43.
A detailed description of each element of the study can be found on the official website of the public organization. Also, on the page with calculations for the Tula region, there is a decoding of the indicators.
