November 22, 2012

On November 16th, 2012 the award ceremony “Leaders of corporate charity - 2012” was held in Moscow. The competition was initiated by the newspaper Vedomosti, PwC and Donors’ Forum. Holcim (Rus) took the 7th place in the ranking of corporate philanthropy, thus confirming high efficiency of the social investments programmes in spite of the limited budget.

52 socially responsible companies participated in the annual research. According to the report total charity expenses of all the participants were almost 11,800 MIO RUR. However, the budget has never been the main evaluation criterion. In the first place the management efficiency of the programmes was evaluated. According to the jury both the costs and the quality of charity programmes have improved. High efficiency of Holcim (Rus) programmes “Neighbourhood” and “Partnership” allowed to take the 7th place in the all-Russian ranking. Among the leaders are such large companies as AFK Sistema, Transaero, Rusal, and Sakhalin Energy.

Recognition of efficiency of Holcim (Rus) programmes in the competition “Corporate Philanthropy Leaders” is a considerable achievement and success in the sphere of social investments at the operational sites.
Not for the first time Holcim (Rus) has become the winner of “Leaders of corporate charity”. The programme “Neighbourhood” took the 3rd place in the ranking of corporate philanthropy-2009 and the 1st place (the gold) in sub ranking of “industrial companies and companies of producing sector” in 2009.

“Leaders of corporate charity” is the joint project of the business newspaper Vedomosti, PricewaterhouseCoopersa and the nonprofit partnership of grant-making organizations Donors’ Forum.
