On 24 October, ‘It’s About People’ annual forum (https://dl.amr.ru/) took place, bringing together members of the expert community, non-profit organizations and Russian businessmen that make intangible assets such as public image and human capital a priority for successful development.
The event featured a panel discussion with ESG and CSR experts, as well as sidelines covering six related topics. The Forum culminated with an award ceremony honoring authors of the best ESG and corporate social responsibility projects.
“It’s About People is a project about and for people. The Forum’s mission is to introduce its guests to the innovative sustainable business practices in Russia. Regardless of the industry, business volume, or other indicators – if a company’s business is based on ESG principles, it can score here and tell the world about its amazing initiatives that improve lives. It’s great to see the contest scale up with new nominations, more and more participants, more complex, advanced, and innovative projects. Today It’s About People is a platform for sharing best practices in sustainable development, a great drive for the companies to shape and present their own top-priority ESG projects, and share their vision with colleagues and like-minds," Irina Sukhova said.
