Business in a Post-Pandemic World: Responsible Investing in the Future
2020 was a difficult period for business and the global economy as a whole. In the wake of the crisis, companies adopted integrated solutions to optimize existing business models.

How have companies’ business strategies in Russia and abroad changed in 2021? Why has the implementation of social programmes or projects become an important trend for Russian companies and the economy as a whole? How does the social responsibility of a business affect its reputation?

How can sustainable development goals and performance targets for national objectives be implemented into a company’s business strategy?
