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.

The Legal Model of the Circular Economy
28 June 2022
10:00—11:00
One of the most important factors in achieving sustainable development goals, ensuring environmental security, and building a circular economy within the country is the development and implementation of an effective legal model for the regulation of environmental relations and related economic incentives and mechanisms. To this end, domestic environmental legislation has been substantially modernized in recent years as part of the implementation of waste management reform and the updating of legislation based on the response to major man-made accidents that have occurred. These changes have resonated widely and generated much discussion in the business, expert, and scientific communities. The most controversial of these issues include the introduction of expanded responsibility on the part of producers and importers for product waste disposal and other innovations in the process of building a circular economy under the Federal Act on Industrial and Consumer Waste and the December 2021 amendment to the Federal Act on Environmental Protection to isolate funds raised from environmental charges and administrative fines for environmental offences. These legal and economic measures aimed at protecting the environment are new to the environmental legislation of the Russian Federation, and the positive and negative aspects of their introduction and the implementation mechanism need to be analyzed in detail.
