As part of the Russia House project in Davos open during the 2020 World
Economic Forum, experts from the analytical division of the Roscongress
Foundation have prepared an analytical digest entitled Green Economy and
International Trade: Towards Sustainable Development. The report examines
the green economy concept and the trade in green goods as factors stimulating
sustainable development in the context of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable
Development. The material has been published in the Analytics section of
the ROSCONGRESS.ORG Information and Analytical System.
The report touches on two global issues on the agenda
of the 2020 World Economic Forum in Davos. The first is how to tackle
environmental and climate problems that negatively affect the environment and
the economy. The second involves transforming industry and systems of trade and
consumption to achieve more sustainable and inclusive business models.

Foundation clearly demonstrates that the creation of a green economy and
sustainable development help significantly reduce environmental risks, improve
peoples well-being, and increase social justice. To implement this approach,
we must transform industrial systems in accordance with environmental
requirements and provide financing for the transition and investment in natural
capital. We understand that it would be impossible to implement these changes
without the cooperation of the international business community, and for our
part we will do our best to facilitate this cooperation,» Chairman of the Board
and CEO of the Roscongress Foundation Alexander Stuglev said.

the resolution of the problem of ever decreasing stocks of natural resources
and the excessive use of environmentally harmful practices. On the one hand,
the sustainable development is facilitated by the restriction of trade in goods
that pose a danger to the environment and humans, and on the other hand, the
liberalization of trade in green goods and the creation of conditions for their
The green economy concept and international trade in
green goods, of course, stimulate sustainable development and are the key to
achieving the goals of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
