The audience of the conference is representatives of domestic and international companies of the North-West Federal District, journalists, heads of specialized state institutions, representatives of the expert community.
“During short period of time corporate volunteering has become an important form of business participation in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). By creating value for society, companies and volunteers themselves, it becomes the growth point of “stakeholder capitalism”, the need for which has been discussed for so long. Companies today face a difficult task of integrating volunteering into their corporate sustainability strategy”.
Yury Blagov, Director of the GSOM SPbU PwC Center for CSR
