Intellectual volunteers of Baikal. Evaluation of CSR projects
15 April 2018
March – May 2018
In March 2018, the Lake Baikal Foundation in cooperation with the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation launched the project «Intellectual Volunteers of Baikal. Evaluation of CSR projects». The aim of the project is to analyze and identify the best practices in the field of corporate social responsibility of companies whose eco-projects affect the Baikal region.
During the project, students will take up the research task in teams. They will have tо:
identify companies which implement eco-programs for corporate social responsibility on Lake Baikal;
analyze the non-financial reporting of selected companies according to specified criteria;
make independent conclusions and recommendations for companies.
The project will immerse students in the applied aspects of the issue, which is gaining popularity in the activities of Russian companies, and will become unique and valuable for the many target groups – businesses, non-profit organizations, public authorities, who will see for the first time a single map of eco-initiatives in the framework of the corporate social responsibility program on Lake Baikal. According to the results of the project, there is a high expectation of generating new programs and achieving synergy of all groups involved in protecting the ecology of Lake Baikal.
The presentation of the research results will be held during the round table «Corporate Social Responsibility: a new view» in the framework of the conference «IV International Congress of Young Scientists on Sustainable Development» on May 21. Representatives of companies carrying out CSR projects in the Baikal region will be invited to the round table to provide students participating in the project with the prompt feedback.
