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, and supports the development of the Friends for Leadership international youth movement, which is working to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

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 163 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 76 countries worldwide.

The Future of Russia’s Centralized District Heating Infrastructure
14 October 2021
10:00—11:15
Two thirds of the Russian population enjoy centralized district heating, which has a significant impact on an individual quality of life and the economics of municipal services. State policy is transitioning towards a new way of regulating relationships between customers, suppliers and heat distributors. The new responsible investing agenda (ESG) and climate legislation are driving the establishment of a reliable and environmentally responsible utility infrastructure (electricity, heating, gas and water supply), and the modernization of existing housing stock. A successful alignment with the ESG agenda in the first instance requires refurbishment of the infrastructure that has exceeded its design service life, but also transition to a new technology paradigm that effectively combines centralized district heating and local energy supply solutions in major cities, and an ensures certain level of infrastructure for towns and villages. Is the pace of transformation fast enough? Is the size and pace of investment sufficient? How can the energy efficient renovation of housing stock and public amenities be implemented?
