Harnessing Russia’s Growth Potential
Panel Session
Conference Hall 3.1 (Krasnodar Region)

Today, most developed countries are striving to pursue development along a sustainable, ‘green’ path and encourage circular economic models. What are the prospects for introducing a circular economy in Russia? What are some of the successful international best practices that could be applied in Russia, and what are some examples of projects that have already been implemented? Which companies should spearhead the transition to a circular economy? When might it be possible to legally require that citizens separate their waste? Which recycling industries are the most efficient today?
