The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

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, and 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 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 160 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Responsible Consumption: Who Is Responsible for It?
3 September 2021
10:00—11:30
Sustainable production and consumption are among the most important elements of a comprehemsive sustainable development system. Without them, we could never talk about the fight against climate change, resource depletion, environmental pollution, poverty, or hunger. The main goal of all sustainable consumption programmes is to improve everyone’s quality of life, and at the same time, this also involves “fulfilling the shared development plans, reducing future economic, environmental, and social costs, increasing economic competitiveness, and reducing poverty”. Responsible consumption is becoming one of the main factors that dictates a consumer’s choice for a particular brand, regardless of age, gender, or status. Today, most Russians not only want to receive a high-quality product that meets their needs, but also the additional social value that stands behind it. Factories must use renewable energy sources and not harm nature, and goods must be safe for humans and the environment, while packaging should be recycled or reused. Buyers increasingly feel compelled to choose and consume goods responsibly. What is the role of science in all of this? How can we be sure that we are ready for responsible consumption and the associated potential costs? How should all the stakeholders in this process collaborate, and who should determine the extent of our responsibility to nature?
