Private Sector Engagement

UNDP assists integration of the principles of sustainable development into corporate culture and strategies of Russian business aiming for a long-term sustainable economic outlook.  UNDP assists implementation of the principles of corporate citizenship through facilitation of multi-stakeholder dialogue between companies and all other interested parties. The development of responsible, mutually advantageous relations within this multi-stakeholder system becomes a major factor for human development and economic growth. The UN Global Compact has now been recognized and is actively supported both by the Russian Government, leading Russian businesses and civil society as a platform for dialogue and engagement of the private sector in the processes of sustainable development. This opportunity is further pursued by implementing projects jointly with public and private companies focusing on CSR, restructuring of single-company towns and personnel development.  This is being complemented by the launch of the Public-Private Partnership Development Project in cooperation with Vnesheconombank which strengthens Russia’s capacity for development of public-private partnerships in Russia, including improvement of legal framework, introduction of modern PPP management and financial instruments in PPP area, institutional capacity building of existing and new PPP-centers, and implementation of PPP pilot projects in selected regions of Russia and/or CIS countries.

In 2011, UNDP continued institutional development of the UN Global Compact Network Russia: 13 new members joined the Network, two international conferences were organized, three training sessions were conducted. The Public-Private Partnership project: resource mobilization strategy was approved, federal PPP law for the subjects of Russian Federation was prepared.
