Civil Society and State Institutions: Key Trends in the Post-Pandemic Agenda for Cooperation and Collaboration for Sustainable Development
Businesses were complaining, saying that they were ready to offer assistance and waiting for civil society organizations to approach them, that they needed help in order to help people. One the one hand it feels like a partnership, but it also seems as though not everybody was immediately aware of the need to act collectively, and there were situations where people had to fend for themselves

More and more of us are adopting this project approach, including business, and Norilsk Nickel and many of our other companies are financing projects of non-profit organizations aimed at sustainable development and environmental education. So, another way to attract natural resources to specially protected natural areas is to develop such projects together with non-profits and get funding from businesses. ...

Business to the Rescue: Addressing Social Inequality on a Global Scale
I want to pay attention to the recent billionaires’ initiative called a Giving Pledge. There are several Russian billionaires who also already joined in. It is a voluntary commitment to donate half of your capital to charity. Probably, it is more than any taxes that you can think of
