The Russian Federation has a huge influence on world events. It is a powerhouse in many natural resources industries and has strong tech and manufacturing businesses.
However, very little information has been available on the sustainability performance of Russian companies. Some of the country’s largest entities are privately or government controlled. Those that are publicly traded have not yet been forced to disclose much data on their ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance) performance by Russian regulators. While Russian citizens appear to have interest in these issues, they are not supported yet by media and have not been allowed to create mass groups such as the Green parties of Europe.
