At the Annual Meeting of the St. Petersburg Chapter of the American Chamber of Commerce in Russia on April 2, EMC Russia Center of Excellence (CoE) captured first prize in Corporate Social Responsibility for demonstrating "outstanding dedication to the highest standards in improving the social and educational environment."
About 200 top executives of the Chamber’s member companies, regional government officials, and diplomats participated in the Annual Meeting, which reviewed the Chapter’s results in 2012 and also bestowed awards to the top nominees in the Investor of the Year, Innovator of the Year, and Significant Achievement of the Year award categories.
"We are very pleased to get this valuable award and recognition of our efforts," says Inga Petryaevskaya, New Business Development Manager, Russia CoE. "We contributed many resources—the time spent by our employees and management, and the energy and funding to support this change for the better. Last year we executed on several programs including grants for research at universities, scholarships for talented students, training and hiring of interns, and sponsoring of numerous events and conferences aimed at educating students and professors on modern technologies and industry trends. And last but certainly not least is our donation to orphanages. All of these activities require dedication and passion to be a socially responsible company. I would like to thank every employee at the EMC St. Petersburg development center for their contributions and support."
Slava Nesterov, General Manager, Russia CoE, adds, "This is a well deserved award for us, since last year we were more active than ever in supporting our corporate responsibility programs. And even more rewarding is the fact that this high recognition comes from our business community. The contributions from our Schools & Academia and Community Involvement programs as well as our support of science development, education, and quality of life are also very significant, so we will keep working and expanding on these initiatives."
