BOOSTING THE BOTTOM LINE WITH CLEAN TECH

10:15-11:30 Pavilion F, Conference Hall F3
Many corporations have long proven that sustainable approaches to production and environmental management can strengthen a firm’s brand affinity and also have a positive impact on profits. Many Russian companies are investing heavily to improve the environmental impact of operations, but the dearth of funding to modernize facilities and deploy costly infrastructure, prevailing market volatility, and the need to resolve related social issues all present significant difficulties. What options do companies have for securing the necessary financing to introduce cleaner technologies? What support measures, including tax incentives, should governments adopt and what are some of the best global practices that can serve as a reference?
