Ian Colebourne

Chief Executive Officer, Deloitte CIS

«We all realize that climate change is re-shaping today’s world, giving rise to various risks and opportunities for businesses. Investors, regulators and other stakeholders are now challenging companies to take responsibility by adopting an integrated, strategic approach to addressing the climate emergency. Deloitte CIS is an intellectual partner of the Climate Governance Initiative Russia because we take climate change seriously. Moreover, Deloitte has recently launched its global WorldClimate strategy, which will enable us to drive responsible climate choices both within our organization and beyond.»

Ed Dowling

Chair, PJSC Polyus

«If corporates fail to take action on climate change now, the implications may be beyond repair. It is comforting to see that businesses are becoming increasingly involved, as climate change continues to be one of the most threatening issues to the wellbeing of our communities and their environments.

At Polyus, we are proud to take part in global initiatives to combat climate change. By reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, continuously evaluating the potential impact of climate change on our own operations, and working in close collaboration with our peers, industry bodies and governments, we aim to accelerate solutions for all.»

CEO of Eurasian Resources Group and Co-Chair of the Global Battery Alliance

«Business leaders play a critical role in helping build a more sustainable future and accelerating global collaboration in the fight against climate change. As a global metals and mining company, ERG is in a strong position to support the transition to a greener, low-carbon economy and ensure the supply chains for batteries powering the EV revolution are responsible and transparent. As part of embedding sustainability into business strategies, improved circularity and waste management processes are also key to making a global impact on decarbonisation. We look forward to working with other international corporate sustainability leaders to bring about the systemic reduction in emissions that is required over this decade and beyond.»

Evgenii Nikitin

CEO, RUSAL

«Doing responsible business is at the core of RUSAL’s operations, particularly regarding high environmental standards. Through the use of our low carbon aluminium ALLOW, which has a production carbon footprint five times lower than the industry’s average (at the smelter), this is proving transformational for the industry. In addition, our wide range of tools from energy efficiency improvements to innovations such as inert anode, assists us in our pledge to achieve our net-zero goal. As market appetite for aluminium is anticipated to grow by more than 50% by 2050, the industry is looking at pathways to reduce its footprint and we are leading the change in this process.»
