RUSSIA’S GREEN AGENDA: A SUSTAINABLE APPROACH TO DRIVE RUSSIAN PRODUCTIVITY AND COMPETITIVENESS

The efficient use of resources, mitigating risks associated with polluting outputs, and sustainable production and operations are money-making propositions that can drive productivity and efficiency across multiple sectors. What ‘Green’ regulatory policies and management techniques should Russian companies adopt to enhance productivity and competitiveness?
