Modern Russia is a strong and rapidly developing state implementing the best of international practices on the fundament of its own rich historical experience. Russian economy aspires for sustainable and innovative advance together with its continental and overseas partners. St. Petersburg being the second capital and business center of Russia welcomes international partners for work and for fruitful exchange of ideas.

Innovative products and manufacturing technologies can help to address the challenges of global sustainable development. To meet the material and immaterial needs of a continuously growing global population, technology must be adapted to achieve higher utilisation with fewer resources. Non-renewable resources must no longer be disposed of, but utilised in multiple phases of product and material cycles. Renewables can substitute non-renewables, but must not be used to an extent higher than they can be regained. Immaterial needs include educational and qualification measures to increase people's awareness, thus enabling them to cope with the interrelated economical, environmental and social challenges of sustainability by initiatives in innovative technology.

The 9th Global Conference on Sustainable Manufacturing (9GCSM) is geared towards representatives of science and industry from all continents. The conference serves as a forum for international research institutes and industrial companies related to the area of sustainable manufacturing. The conference offers keynote speeches, panel discussions, expert sessions and a poster forum. Discussions and exchange of ideas between the participants are an integral part of the meeting.

9GCSM will be a follow-up to previous conferences held at Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, Abu Dhabi University/UAE in November 2010, at IIT Madras/India in December 2009, at Pusan National University/Korea in October 2008, at Rochester Institute of Technology Rochester(NY)/USA in September 2007, at University of Sao Paulo/Brazil in October 2006, at Jiao Tong University Shanghai/China in October 2005, at Technical University Berlin/Germany in September 2004, as well as the Environmentally Benign Manufacturing (EBM) workshop held in Birmingham (Alabama)/USA in January 2003
