Real ecological innovations and ways to use them for raising profitability of this business will also be demonstrated at the forum.
The forum’s program includes conferences, seminars and business meetings on topical environmental issues, such as advanced research in the field of environmental protection, attracting investment of foreign sponsors for solving ecological problems of the city and the region, development of regulatory framework for environmental protection and related infrastructure, meetings with representatives of the federal, regional and local authorities.

“This forum is intended to dispel the myth of unattractiveness of green technologies for business,” Minister of Radiation and Environmental Safety of the Chelyabinsk Region Alexander Galichin told Itar-Tass. “Modern innovations make it possible not only to reduce costs, but also to derive benefit for enterprises. Successful examples of such application will be presented at the forum.”
