Engagement with stakeholders on anti-corruption

As part of the Company’s relations with the government authorities, expert and business communities, Russian Railways is represented on expert task forces of the Prosecutor General’s Office, the Russian Ministry of Labour and Social Protection, the Anti-Corruption Compliance and Business Ethics Council of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation, and Rosstandart’s technical committee on the development of the Anti-Corruption Activities standard.

These efforts provided a tailwind for the initiatives aimed at the improvement, harmonisation and application of legislation, promotion of anti-corruption practices and the development of incentives for organising, digitalising and automating anti-corruption procedures.
