Russia: Corporate Responsibility & the UN Compact

Corporate Responsibility in Russia and the UN Global Compact

(CSRwire) LONDON - Ethical Corporation will host a two-day conference from 7-8 June 2005 in St Petersburg, Russia, focusing on some of the essential corporate responsibility issues in Eurasia. It will also highlight opportunities for businesses incorporating the UN Global Compact principles into their Russian and Eastern/Central European operations.
Over the two days, experts from leading multinational companies and non-governmental organisations will share their knowledge and experience of combining ethical and responsible practices with business growth and competitiveness.

Corporate responsibility takes different forms and can be driven by various motives. In the face of growing pressure to responsibly manage issues affecting business reputation, this event aims to recognise ways companies can maintain long-term profitability while simultaneously advancing the public good.

Through keynote sessions, speeches, breakout groups, workshops and off-the-record discussions, attendees will explore practical methods of ensuring business practices positively reflect the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact Initiative.

The conference programme will address some prominent corporate responsibility issues:

• How to improve corporate governance standards

• The real difference between corporate responsibility and philanthropy

• The role of multi-lateral institutions in encouraging corporate responsibility

• Non-financial reporting

• Corporate partnerships with NGOs and governments

• Tackling bribery and corruption

• How to measure business progress on the Global Compact’s 10 principles
