From June 2 to June 5, St. Petersburg hosted the annual business event of the SPIEF, which is a platform for the meeting of heads of major Russian and foreign companies, heads of state and political leaders. Konstantin Rzayev, Managing Partner of EcoPartners Group, has once again entered the list of forum participants.
This year, sustainable development and the «green agenda» have taken a firm place in the business program of the forum. The speakers' speeches touched upon the impact of the environmental agenda on production and consumption, environmental entrepreneurship, sustainable development in corporations and at the national level.
At SPIEF, the head of the Russian environmental operator Denis Butsaev announced plans to create a network of 10,000 reverse vending machines for separate waste collection. Recall that EcoTechnologies is one of the key manufacturers of reverse vending machines in Russia, which has the potential to implement such initiatives.
