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.

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 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

The Circular Economy and the Environment
16 June 2022
09:00—10:15
In 2021, the waste management industry led Russia in industrial production growth, the result of waste reform implemented in country. 15.5 million tons of new facilities for processing solid municipal waste and 4.6 million tons for recycling have been commissioned across the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. Regional leaders have been identified along with those lagging behind. On the whole there has been a gradual expansion of target setting – from the creation of a complex system of solid municipal waste management to the creation of a circular economy within Russia. Building and modernizing the relevant infrastructure calls for modern equipment and will lead to the creation of thousands of new jobs. Growth within the industry, the expansion of target-setting, and the new negative conditions in which the Russian economy has found itself as a result of external factors have all uncovered problems that need to be solved for the further successful implementation of the waste reform and the facilitation of a circular economy. What anti-crisis measures must be taken to ensure the growth of the industry in the new reality? What new mechanisms need to be created to support investors and growth rates in the industry? Is the financial sector ready to support the principles of sustainable development in the face of sanctions? How can we create an effective ‘seamless’ training system for the personnel who will come to work at the circular economy’s new high-tech infrastructure facilities? How are the regions coping with the new challenges?
