At a press conference on 22 September, Alexander Shokhin, President of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, presented the first national rating of companies with effective anti-corruption policies.
For their rating, experts from the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs selected a sample of 50 major Russian companies, which were then assessed using 37 criteria of the ISO 37001:2016 international standards and the Anti-Corruption Charter of Russian Business (a total of 182 criteria). Following this assessment, the Rating Committee rated 23 companies that fully disclosed information about their management systems for preventing and combating corruption.
SUEK was assigned the highest A1 rating: a company with the highest level of combatting corruption and the lowest level of corruption risks and, therefore, the lowest associated threats to investors, creditors, business partners and other stakeholders. Among the companies that also received the highest ratings were Russian Railways, Rostelecom, VTB Bank, Rosseti, SIBUR Holding, RusHydro, Metalloinvest, InterRAO and Sakhalin Energy.
