Intensive International School of Management at RANEPA IIM awarded BAT recognition certificate
The Intensive International School of Management at RANEPA Institute of Industry Management (IIM) was awarded a certificate of recognition for its involvement in the Russian-German project “Climatically neutral economic activity: Introduction of the best available technologies (BAT) in the Russian Federation.”
The Moscow office of the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) has held a conference, BAT in Russia: Achievements and New Challenges. The conference summed up the nearly five-year operation of the Russian-German project “Climatically neutral economic activity: Introduction of the best available technologies (BAT) in the Russian Federation” led by Yulia Grishchenkova, Johannes Schuhmann and Maxim Polishchuk.
The project is a part of the International Climate Protection Initiative (IKI) and the German Climate Technology Initiative (DKTI). It is funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). In Russia, the project is being implemented with the support of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. Its partners include the Rosprirodnadzor environmental regulator, a number of major Russian industrial enterprises and industry associations, Russian and foreign environmental experts, as well as universities and research organizations. One of them is the Intensive International School of Management at RANEPA IIM.
“We are dedicated to collaborating with this project from the bottom of our hearts,” said Viktor Voronov, director of the Intensive International School of Management. “Together with the project’s specialists and experts, we have developed and implemented an education methodology package “The legal framework for applying BAT in the Russian Federation”.”
Based on the new methodology, six professional refresher courses were delivered in 2016-2017; 203 people from 61 regions were trained and took the exam, including 93 employees of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Rosprirodnadzor, 72 environmental safety specialists from industrial enterprises, 21 university lecturers and 17 employees of regional authorities. “All graduates of our courses continue to participate in this noble and useful drive to apply BAT technologies and requirements,” Viktor Voronov emphasized.
