Uralkali Takes Leading Positions in RSPPs Sustainable Development Indices


The Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP) has included Uralkali (the Company; Moscow Exchange: URKA) in the list of Russian companies that are leading in sustainable development, corporate responsibility and reporting. Uralkali has entered the Sustainable Development Vector Index and the highest-ranked Responsibility and Transparency Index (A Group) in the 2020 assessment.

The Responsibility and Transparency Index assesses the quality of public disclosure related to corporate social responsibility by industrial companies as well as establishing priorities in sustainable development for leading Russian businesses.

The Sustainable Development Vector Index analyses the dynamics of companies' activities with the goal to assess changes in key socio-economic and environmental indicators over a certain period.


The Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP) has been compiling its annual sustainable development, corporate responsibility and transparency indices since 2014. The goal of the project is to create the tools for an independent assessment of corporate performance to promote a systematic understanding of sustainable development and corporate responsibility, as well as to increase transparency and quality of ESG management.

Since 2017, the RSPP indices have been included in the international database of ratings and sustainable development indices.
