Industrial companies make a significant contribution to socio-economic growth and are responsible for the state of the environment. At the same time, their resource potential and corporate policies can be a positive factor in the sustainable development of indigenous peoples, as well as the territories of their traditional residence.
To do this, government agencies and participants in international cooperation should promote the formation of partnership in this area. The relevant tasks are reflected in national strategic planning documents and are the subject of growing public attention.
The forum addressed issues of promoting the standards of corporate business policy in relation to indigenous peoples, the practice of public-private partnership in the field of their sustainable development, as well as the effective participation of indigenous peoples in solving these tasks.
In order to ensure broad participation of interested parties, the forum was held in a combined format (offline and online) with an open video broadcast in Russian and English.
The social responsibility of business in the places of traditional residence of indigenous peoples meets the interests of States, industrial companies and indigenous peoples!
Objectives of the forum:
- consolidation of public-private partnership participants in the field of sustainable development of indigenous peoples
- popularization and development of recognized standards of social responsibility of business
- formation of sustainable mechanisms of interaction between business and indigenous peoples to achieve mutually beneficial goals
