The principle of the rate composition is based on the usage of exclusively qualitative indicators, which have been altered in all regions. The independent experts gave their conclusions about completeness and reliability of the data concerning the energy balances of the regions, the influence upon environment and the data on protection of natural ecological systems and the species, included into the Red Books. For the comparison of the regions the experts studied the indices on power intensity and ecological costs in production of the gross internal product, ecological and power-engineering safety in economical activity, situation with environment and efficiency of nature-protecting administration.

Further Republic of Tatarstan goes on the third place, Kaluga region is on the fourth place and Kabardino-Balkaria is on the fifth place.
