The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Climate Change: Is it Still a Question of Money?
3 September 2021
12:30—14:00
Climate change is a critical topic of discussion at leading global forums and conferences. The green transformation is impacting the global economy and social interactions, and the climate agenda is becoming a key part of the sustainable development paradigm in an era of ESG transformation. Measures aimed at regulating greenhouse gas emissions are having an economic impact on businesses. What’s more, climate protection initiatives continue to be expanded at a national, international, industry and corporate level. Steps are also being taken in Russia to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. An experiment in Sakhalin to set up an emissions trading system is getting under way, an initiative to establish a carbon-neutral region in Murmansk Region has begun, and experimental carbon control regions and farms are being created as part of efforts to study climatic effects. The time has come to harmonize Russian and international methodologies for calculating carbon footprints and to create a legal framework for the green economy. What risks and opportunities are associated with implementing climate initiatives at a corporate, industry, national and international level? Given that transnational carbon regulation is a new economic reality for exporters, what adaptation strategies should be introduced? Are climate initiatives effective at achieving de-carbonization? What strategies should be adopted in order to introduce modern low-carbon and carbon-free technologies? What measures could be put in place to ensure that Russian businesses lead the way in carbon and green initiatives (such as preferences, subsidies, or other incentives)?
