Management
Alexey Zhelneyev
PRESIDENT OF THE ASSOCIATION

He headed the National Association of Timber Industry «Russian Forest» in 2018.

«After going through all the stages of work in the forest industry, I clearly see the main problems and challenges that the industry faces today. This experience has already allowed to formulate the position of the professional community and find a connection between it and the legislature. And in the next few years, it will also help to find new directions in the development of the association and the entire industry».

Sergey Pakhalyuk
Vice President of the Association for Strategic Development

«Today, two important areas of my work are the promotion and dissemination of principles of environmentally responsible, socially oriented and economically efficient forest management, as well as the development of a system of voluntary national forest certification. A great deal of experience in the field of economics and finance, as well as management and communications, obtained while working at Sberbank of Russia and participating in the organization of the World Cup in 2018, helps me in solving these tasks».

Margarita Lee
Vice President of the Association for the Support of Investment Projects

«Today, one of the urgent tasks of the «Russian Forest» is the independent disposal of waste from the wood processing industry. In order to solve it, we developed the project «Mini Pulp and Paper Mill». Its implementation within two years at each timber processing plant will allow not only to avoid waste accumulation, but also to produce products - cardboard and cellulose. The production capacity of the Mini PPM allows you to capture all the smelly gases and apply a closed water supply system. Mini PPM is an ecologically and economically efficient project».

Council
Nikolay Nikolayev
Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Natural Resources, Ownership and Land Tenure.

«The association provides an opportunity to build a dialogue with forest industry on a qualitatively new level. And this allows us to develop law projects, taking into account both — the interests of the state and the opinion of industry representatives».

Ruslan Provodnikov
Public figure, former boxing world champion.
Curator of the association’s social initiatives.

«Being a person who linked his life with sports, I experienced first-hand the colossal role of professional associations in helping athletes. In the forest industry, the association serves as a liaison for all market players, and its effectiveness is key to the development of the entire industry».
