Gender equality is good for business!

3 March - World Wildlife Day

World Wildlife Day (WWD) is an opportunity to celebrate the many beautiful and varied forms of wild fauna and flora and to raise awareness of the multitude of benefits that their conservation provides to people. At the same time, the Day reminds us of the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime and human-induced reduction of species, which have wide-ranging economic, environmental and social impacts. Given these various negative effects, Sustainable Development Goal 15 focuses on halting biodiversity loss.


Leading CEOs call for Greater Climate Action at COP27

Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt

The UN Global Compact brought together representatives from the United Nations, governments and the private sector at COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh to galvanize the private sector and industry to better assess environmental risks and opportunities, set and deliver ambitious climate targets and adopt responsible practices for the transition to a net-zero and resilient world.

According to Edelman’s second annual Trust Barometer Special Report: Trust and Climate Change, a global survey of 14,000 people in 14 countries, there are fears that as the climate crisis worsens business is not trusted to do what is necessary to respond. 

Sanda Ojiambo, Assistant Secretary-General and CEO, UN Global Compact, speaking during the global climate conference emphasized the importance of private sector action to tackle the climate crisis:

“We have less than 10 years left to shift the world onto a 1.5C trajectory, reduce global inequalities and achieve the substance of the SDG Agenda. Our changing climate means, more than ever, that we are running out of time. It really is now or never for the private sector to turn their bold commitments into tangible solutions to protect our planet and our collective future. The UN Global Compact looks forward to continuing our work with businesses all over the world to accelerate our transition to net-zero.”


10 November 2022 The UN Global Compact, together with the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), and the UN Climate Change (UNFCCC), brought together senior executives of business, industry, finance, civil society, the United Nations and Government at the High-Level Meeting of Caring for Climate. Those present discussed how to bring forward a strong business message of climate ambition and discussed tangible solutions that lead to sustainable economic growth to realize the goals of the Paris Agreement.

25 January. The Bureau of the RSPP Board approved as RSPP's Position the RSPP Recommendations on maintaining and promoting the Sustainable Development Agenda in today’s Russian practice.

Russian business is recommended to develop the application of principles and standards of responsible business and sustainable development on the basis of priority directions on environmental, social and managerial aspects of activity. The tasks of development of effective national infrastructure for sustainable development - a system of evaluation, verification, certification, standardization in the field of sustainable development are outlined. It is noted that an important factor is to maintain a balance between the localization of national tools and maintaining the connection with international platforms and tools and the vector of movement towards sustainable development goals adopted by the international community.

RSPP calls on business associations to support this Position and promote it widely in the business community and within the framework of interaction with stakeholders.

The full text of the RSPP Recommendations on maintaining and promoting the Sustainable Development Agenda in today’s Russian practice is available here.
