The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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, 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 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Session 3 - Ecological Transition and Circular Economy
28 October 2021
16:45—17:45
The current economic system of intensive production and consumption based on capital accumulation and infinite growth is no longer sustainable in terms of resource use. Therefore, there is a need to support a system based on sustainable development, environmental, social, and economic pillars. The aim is to revive the economy and the manufacturing industries, focusing on environmental protection and appreciation of nature. This will enable an effective response to the climate crisis which has developed into a phase of emergency and urgency, with tragic reductions in biodiversity, with deep inequalities between different hemispheres, peoples, and generations.
This is a challenging task to be performed gradually: you should neither panic, nor be overly optimistic.
