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 163 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.

Emerging Challenges for the Chemical Industry: The Climate Agenda
13 October 2021
16:30—17:45

The chemical industry is a driver of industrial growth and one of the fastest growing global economic sectors, with a growth rate of 1.2 times that of GDP. Polymer production has increased by 50% globally over the last decade. The use of chemical products makes it possible to respond quickly and effectively to global challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic, thereby contributing to the industry’s continued sustainable growth. In recent years, Russian chemical companies have opened up a large number of new production facilities focused primarily on meeting the needs of the domestic market and the import substitution programme for basic chemical products. The projects currently being implemented (Amur Gas Processing Plant, Nizhnekamskneftekhim, Baltic Chemical Complex and Irkutsk Oil Company among others) will make a significant contribution to growth in Russia’s non-resource non-energy exports. The realization of the sector’s potential is being achieved thanks to the government’s effective system of long-term incentives. One of the key challenges facing the global and Russian chemical industries, however, is the climate agenda. Thanks to their unique functional characteristics, chemical products play an important role in efforts to protect the environment by reducing resource consumption and carbon emissions compared with products made from traditional materials. On the other hand, tightening environmental state regulations are forcing chemical companies to increasingly redirect their projects towards sustainable development objectives. What strategies are chemical companies pursuing in order to maintain sustainable growth amidst the growing climate agenda? What new technologies are they focusing on? What state support measures can help to secure the successful implementation of projects in the sector and strengthen the Russian chemical industry’s competitiveness on the global market?
