From Russia With Love. A national chapter on the global CSR agenda is an original research report, commissioned by UC RUSAL from the Economist Intelligence Unit and supported by PricewaterhouseCoopers in Russia and the United Nations Development Programme. The report aims to shed light on how Russian companies compare with other multinationals elsewhere, evaluate how mature Russian CSR practices are and what role they play in companies’ strategic development, as well as outlining immediate priorities for Russian multinationals.
The analysis in the report draws on a global survey of 258 senior executives with representative samples from Russia and other emerging markets, as well as the developed world. Along with this, more than 20 in-depth interviews were conducted with companies and sustainability experts.The research programme was conducted between June and September 2008. The survey focused on large companies, representing a range of industries: 97% of all companies polled reported revenues of at least US$1bn in their previous financial year. In all, 32 companies were headquartered in Russia while a further 34 were headquartered in other emerging markets. The balance of the companies hailed from North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.
Our sincere thanks go to all executives and experts interviewed for this report for sharing their professional insights.
