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 162 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.

A System of Mutual Recognition for the Certification and Exchange of Carbon Credits in Russia
14 October 2021
16:45—18:00
In light of the rise of the global ESG agenda, as well as the planned introduction of cross-border carbon regulation in Europe, the task of confirming the carbon neutrality of power generation is becoming more urgent. At present, Russia’s system for tracking, recording and trading carbon units is not systematized at the national level, nor is there a unified system of certification and mutual recognition to acknowledge reductions in emissions of CO2 and its equivalents. To fill this gap, the Russian Ministry of Energy has devised an initiative to amend legislation and create a national Russian certification system. At the same time, a number of international certification systems are already being adopted in the country. Individual market participants can also confirm their green credentials with the help of other tools. How will the Russian and international certification systems compare? How can the double counting of the same electricity volumes across different systems be avoided and their integration ensured? What should the certification market look like and who does it benefit? How can Russia and foreign countries more effectively cooperate on developing certification systems and reduce the impact of manmade emissions on the environment?
