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.

Defeating Trash: Russian Reform and International Practices
6 June 2019
11:00—12:15

The process of global greening was first announced at the UN Conference in Stockholm in 1972, and then re-enforced at the Rio Conference in 1992. The UN Commission on Sustainable Development was established and the Declaration on Environment and Development was adopted on the basis of these meetings. Today, the environmental agenda in the world and in Russia is very rich. Focusing on ecology and technologies for reducing the environmental impact has a positive effect on the competitiveness of the economy and is a significant factor for increasing a country’s investment appeal. One of the most important reforms aimed at greening Russia has just been launched and is designed to reduce the number of unauthorized landfills, making the market transparent and manageable. Collaborating in waste management with such countries as Japan, Germany, France, and Switzerland will allow Russia to accelerate the pace of adopting advanced technologies, making the industry attractive to foreign investment. How can the reform targets be achieved? How can the share of processed waste be raised from 12% to 60% and the share of recycled waste from 7% to 36% by 2024? How can the best international practices be applied in creating a system of waste separation in Russia?
