THE DOLLARS AND SENSE IN BETTER MANAGING THE RUSSIAN ENVIRONMENT

16:00-17:15 Pavilion 5, Conference Hall 5.1


Much progress has been made in environmental management over the past two decades when, coming out of the Soviet period, as much as 40% of Russian territory experienced ecological stress. Yet further efforts are called for – including the introduction of specific ‘green’ measures to increase business awareness, improved regulatory frameworks and incentives, and policies to encourage the adoption of new technologies – which, if taken in combination, are not only good for the environment, but also strengthen a company's bottom line. Are there some case studies where stronger environmental practices have led to better business efficiencies and more sustained profits? What key systemic policy approaches and technical innovations can drive a new ‘green agenda’ for Russian industry?

Highlights

"One of the principles [in one of the “Green Economy” draft laws] is the manufacturer assuming responsibility at every stage of production. The manufacturer should be responsible for a product throughout its lifecycle".

"Active work is now underway on associated oil gas ultisation, gas processing plants are being built, gas is being reinjected while and the entire (oil and gas) sector is now on a green path. Soon it won’t have such a ‘dark’ reputation as before".

Maxim Nechaev

"There are three key principles which we have found to be very important globally: shared responsibility, or fair allocation, control by authorities and quality standards for recycling".

Madeleine Bergrahm

"There is great demand in Russia for measures to support the electric car. (…) We believe that government support for electric cars is one of the ways of introducing this technology throughout the world".
