Dear friends, colleagues, and partners!
The New Year holiday season is always an active and eventful time in our professional environment, the time when it is necessary to consolidate achievements, prepare for the next steps, and take stock of the current year.
In the passing year we have witnessed significant changes in the industry both in Russia and worldwide. On the one hand, the scrap market remains in tension due to the current export restrictions and a decrease in scrap collection; on the other hand, the ‘green’ trend in the global economy enhances the importance of recycling industry for the world economy. Additionally, in 2021, the official status of the scrap collection and processing industry has been formalised in the documents of the Government of the Russian Federation; approaches for the industry’s strategic development have been defined.
In 2022, the scrap metals industry will celebrate its 100th anniversary, and the Association RUSLOM.COM will celebrate its 10th one. Our self-regulatory organisation has accomplished a great deal of work, laying the foundation for a further development of a transparent and efficient industry in Russia. We were able to prove that by common efforts we effectively address complex and large-scale issues.
We wish you successful projects, growth, and prosperity to your company. Health, happiness and prosperity to you and your loved ones!
We thank you for 2021 and wish you a happy New Year 2022!
Director of the Association Victor Kovshevny
