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 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

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.

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?
