A socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 160 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.

New Directions and Sources of Financing for the Green Agenda
3 June 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the entire world to rethink the concept of sustainable development, and most developed countries, particularly in the European Union, are basing economic recovery efforts on ESG principles with the objective of making the world a greener place. Under its Green Deal, the EU aims to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and the called-for transition to renewables will cause a decline in demand for Russian energy resources. Indeed, under the baseline scenario, the EU’s carbon tax is expected to negatively impact the Russian economy to the tune of more than EUR 33 billion between 2025 and 2030. And despite a number of successful initial green finance bond launches by Russian issuers, Russia is only just beginning to implement ESG approaches. By 2023, green technologies could grow to become a RUB 3-trillion industry in Russia. However, sustainability projects, let alone climate-protection projects, are costly, and presently only offer low returns. It is therefore essential for Russia to establish a green finance system. With a national taxonomy in place, it would be possible to verify projects and attract finance from Russian and foreign investors.
