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.

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.

Green Energy: Current Challenges
The most unpleasant challenge today is that once again there are some trends around the politicization of all these situations. There are talks in Europe, for instance, 'Let's rethink nuclear power because Russia is too much of a world leader in this field'. But actually, I think that common sense will win out

Exporting Technological Sovereignty: Trust and Sustainability in the Current Environment
Partnership is part of sovereignty because no project of this kind (a nuclear facility) can be implemented alone. It is a huge order for the local industry and a huge opportunity for them to learn how to make something high-class, high-tech, and then supply it not only for the needs of the nuclear power industry, but for any high-tech sector. It is my firm belief that any country that is thinking today about the future of its energy as well as its technological future and independence and sovereignty, simply has to have some kind of nuclear facility on its territory, at least as a base around which to then build many other things

Russian Energy System and Climate Agenda: Evolution or Revolution
The carbon footprint will now start being calculated in any product that is produced in any country. And Russia’s low-carbon energy balance is the main support beam for our exporters, from metals to chemistry, to ensure that their products aren’t subject to a carbon tax at the very least, and, at the very most, are bought in developed countries in principle. I think that the theme of the carbon tax is actually the easy bit and the first attempt. Any serious company at any moment will require the entire chain of its suppliers to present a carbon footprint for every process stage. And if this carbon footprint can’t be presented, the product won’t be purchased,

Russian Energy System and Climate Agenda: Evolution or Revolution
There is also the question of what impact nuclear power has on the environment, including the hotly disputed topic of spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste. Thanks to the introduction of class 4 reactors and the achievement of a closed fuel cycle as well as the ability to reuse spent nuclear fuel an almost unlimited number of times, burn uranium, and burn the plutonium that is generated, we will move on to the so-called radiation equivalent, when we return to nature the approximate amount of radiation that we have taken from nature when natural uranium was being mined. And these aren’t some distant dreams. These are projects that we are working on in concrete terms today. In no way do we equate spent nuclear fuel with waste. We say that it’s a valuable source of future raw materials

Logistics is the ‘New Oil’ of the Russian Economy: International Transport Corridors as the Main Driver of Growth
Compliance with the strictest environmental standards is important. We understand the crucial thing: transport has a tremendous impact on the global climate situation. We understand that since the Northern Sea Route is shorter than the traditional one, ships that run on fossil fuels account for less СО2 emissions due to higher speed and shorter distance on this route

Arctic Economic Council Meeting
Maritime navigation is the vascular system of the global economy, the key to development and progress. Recent events (a tanker grounded in the Suez Canal) have shown that one awkward move can stop all global trade, generate multi-billion-dollar losses, and even endanger someone's life through disruption of critical supplies. We believe that the Northern Sea Transport Corridor provides the global trade with a stable and climate-friendly alternative with significant advantages, mainly because that this route is shorter and therefore will produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions. It is safer, there are no transit fees... We have developed a plan for the NSR infrastructure development until 2035, prepared taking into account all parties, including scientists and environmentalists. The plan implies a phased development in three stages

Arctic Economic Council Meeting
The need for economic development in the Arctic region is obvious for all members of the Arctic Economic Council. The Russian part of the Arctic is populated by 4 million people. We need to focus on environmental safety, especially that changes in the Arctic impact the global climate

An Economy of Unlimited Resources
For Rosatom, the environmental agenda is an absolutely vital issue that we actively live with, including thanks to our basic technologies. [...] We are actively involved in the construction of wind power and the national Ecology project

Introducing Russia to Africa
Russia is the pioneer of nuclear energy. The world’s first nuclear power plant was launched in no other place than here 65 years ago, and throughout the course of history we have been the world’s leader in developing innovative nuclear technologies. <…> We work around the globe and pay a special attention to the African continent, which is undoubtfully an area of growth

Defeating Trash: Russian Reform and International Practices
We need to solve infrastructural problems; the number of facilities in the country should be adequate. Moreover, they should be located smartly across our huge territory

Defeating Trash: Russian Reform and International Practices
We need to build a transparent and convenient unified state information system that would allow to monitor waste. Not to work in a declarative order, but to work with the technology; clearly understand what the input is, calculate the output, see where this waste goes. We need to create a national operator, a national system of waste management that would include the existing waste processing companies

Defeating Trash: Russian Reform and International Practices
[Waste management, – Ed.] is still a pretty shady industry, because current legislation implies that industrial waste suppliers are worked with in a declarative order: what they declared goes to the statistics. But even out of this officially declared amount only 1.4% are recycled

The Digitalization of Energy: from Local Solutions to Transforming the Industry
No company, even one as large as ours, is unlikely to be able to independently create a completely isolated system that would collect, store, distribute, and process such data and maintain this entire system at a respectable level technologically, especially with an eye to the future

Any data ownership raises the question of how this data is protected. As soon as each corporation, even a large one, builds its isolated data storage and management system, it must protect every section of its perimeter
