Building Sustainable Supply Chains in Emerging Market Context: SIBUR’s Experience on Russian Market
The importance of transition of the Russian economy to a model of more reasonable consumption and resources usage is evident for the majority of stakeholders. Representatives of government authorities realize the importance of these aspects and develop systems of measures to stimulate introduction of the circular economy principles. Integration of state and business efforts in this area will make the progress much more visible and significant. The paper explores the state, specificity and perspectives of circular economy in the Russian context applying a case-study approach. SIBUR case is used as an empirical evidence and background for further articulation of suggested propositions. Through the analysis of the case it was concluded that for further development of circular economy principles both in SIBUR, and in other Russian companies, there is a necessity of relevant normative and regulative changes in this area, as well as, educational work at the individual, industry and country level.
