Abstract:CSR has in recent decades been the subject of quite a substantial, albeit controversial, evolution in Russia. There have been many voluntary CSR initiatives from the most conscientious and strategic private big businesses. However, CSR in Russia does not yet involve small and medium-size enterprises, which have so far preferred to confine themselves to some charity work at a local scale, viewing it as the main form of their social engagement.

- The World Guide to CSR: A Country-by-Country Analysis of Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility
The World Guide to CSR is the first book to provide comparable national profiles that describe the evolution and practice of Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility (CSR) for 58 countries and 5 global regions. Each regional and national profile includes key information about the relevant CSR history, country-specific issues, trends, research and leading organisations. The purpose of the book is to give CSR professionals (including managers, consultants, academics and NGOs focusing on the social, environmental and ethical responsibilities of business) a quick reference guide to CSR in different regional and national contexts. This unique resource will be an essential acquisition for all organisations who need to benchmark their CSR strategies throughout different regions and cultures and want the best possible intelligence on the key issues and concerns relating to corporate social responsibility in all of the markets in which they operate.
