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.

Who Will Pay for Today’s Environmental Challenges?
4 June 2021
17:00—18:15

Inequalities in economies, demographics and the social sphere are impacting prevailing attitudes towards solving environmental issues just as it is becoming increasingly obvious and indisputable that ignoring environmental problems will carry too great a cost to all humanity. The growing urgency of the environmental agenda is putting pressure on governments as well as business to respond. What price will humanity pay for ignoring or postponing the solution to this problem, and how might reaching carbon neutrality by 2050 impact the global economy? What investments are needed in order to combat global climate change, and what benefits can be achieved? How can a green state budget and government stimulus help to solve environmental problems, and what will the labour market of the future look like in the wake of a green transition? How can universities help to achieve sustainable development goals through the creation of a responsible generation? How can volunteer programmes contribute to the fight against global climate change? Will business get on board with the sustainable development goals?
