“For any company, building relationships with its clients and partners is a key factor. Because impeccable business reputation both brings success in the moment and provides for stable business development in the future. The nominated projects were significantly different in terms of the industry, scope and essence. But there was something in common in all of them. Firstly, all of them focus on respect and trust, building relationships to start long-term partnerships and develop both the companies and those with whom and for whom they operate. Secondly, all of them are creative and innovative, which allows business to make a step forward and lay the solid foundation of its future,” Irina Sukhova said.
People Investor Award, a competition of Russian corporate projects, was established in 2008 to recognise companies that make social investments and apply innovative ESG, sustainability ad CSR practices. This year, over 140 projects were nominated in 8 categories.
