Abstract [en]

The oil industry is vital for the economy of the Komi Republic in Russia. It also benefits the municipalities

near oil production sites in terms of benefit-sharing agreements between oil companies and local authorities.

These agreements compose an important part of the corporate social responsibility (CSR) of oil companies

working in the Komi Republic, and in Russia in general. While this financial support is essential for

local communities, local people also primarily bear the negative environmental impacts of oil operations.

Yet, they rarely have a chance to participate either in environmental decision-making or in formulating benefit-

sharing agreements. This paper discusses why this is problematic, and demonstrates new developments

in Russian CSR practices: in 2015, the oil company Lukoil-Komi concluded a new type of benefit-sharing

agreement with the indigenous peoples’ association Izvatas. In addition to traditional social benefits, the

company agreed to consult the communities on new projects and committed to disclose information about

oil leaks publicly. This more recent type of benefit-sharing arrangement incorporates elements of local participation

in environmental issues into the prevailing form of philanthropic and paternalistic CSR practices.
