Holding of the international exhibition devoted to ecological modernization of the Russian economy is very important in modern conditions. The solution of environmental problems is one of key conditions of a sustainable development of any state. Thus grows the need for introduction of modern environmental standards and "green" technologies in production, power and transport sectors. More and more significant and actual becomes wide use of alternative energy sources. I don't doubt that the innovative solutions and projects proposed at the ECOTECH exhibition and forum will be demanded in practice and will contribute to the strengthening of global ecological safety.
Exchange of experience and incorporation of efforts of authoritative environmental professionals, representatives of state bodies, business community and public organizations will make a powerful contribution to realization of the key tasks related to environmental protection. I am confident that ECOTECH will become the perfect platform both for maintenance of already existing relations and for establishment of new ones and also for further development of international partnership in the sphere of development and introduction into economy of environmentally friendly, "green" technologies based on the latest achievements of innovative progress.
I am confident that the international exhibition and forum ECOTECH will take place in a constructive and creative vein and will enjoy the most wide response both in our country and abroad.

Let me congratulate you with the opening of the exhibition and forum!
Today we are participants of grandiose changes which take place in the sphere of ecological safety ensuring. Legislation has determined the period of a phased transition to essentially new mechanisms of regulation based on the principles of the best available technologies (BAT). The changes have effect on the real sector of economy; the measure of ecological responsibility is conditioned by the extent of negative impact on environment since January 1, 2019. Zero rates of payment for negative impact will be applied to objects using BAT. I am confident that responsible business has started already today taking into account this mechanism when making average and long-term business plans.
I do hope that the forum will provide all participants with an opportunity not only to see new technologies but to share also their unique knowledge. An opportunity to make contribution to the solution of the most difficult task of ensuring a balance between the increasing technogenic load on the environment and ecological safety is also an opportunity to change our world, to make it slightly better and purer.
