The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 2,500 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 122 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide.

Environmental Responsibility in the Arctic: Standards of Conduct and Doing Business
30 March 2017
09:00

To preserve the unique ecosystem of the Arctic for future generations, strong government regulation is not enough. Maintaining the ecological balance in the Arctic must be a common objective for government, business, and society. Whether already established or just starting out in the Arctic, businesses need to assume a heightened degree of responsibility for preserving the environment. Issues for discussion: • How should they do this — by producing their own environmental regulations/green standards, or by adopting global social compacts? • Are Russian businesses ready for this? Can existing public standards form the basis for a new environmental self-regulatory institution for the Russian Arctic? • What international practices in terms of the relationship between social compacts and government regulation can be applied to the environmental development of the Arctic?
