Corporate Social Responsibility for Petroleum in Northern Norway and the Russian Arctic
Communities and governments hold diverse expectations regarding corporate social responsibility (CSR) for Arctic oil and gas. This seminar features two presentations adrressing this topic.
The project 'Sustainability and Petroleum Extraction: Corporate and Community Perspectives in Northern Norway and the Russian Arctic' (funded by the Research Council of Norway) interviewed petroleum stakeholders in northern Norway and the Russian Arctic: Hammerfest, Murmansk, the Komi Republic, and Nenets Autonomous Okrug (NAO).
What different expectations do these communities and the companies have for petroleum-related CSR? Can we identify best practices for CSR cutting across the Barents region's international boundaries, especially with the volatility of oil and gas prices? What are our expectations of CSR and the companies carrying it out within broader Arctic international governance?
