Environmental social governance and best available techniques: assessing investment efficiency
Keywords: available technologies, resource efficiency, social and environmental responsibility, corporate governance, investments, green financing, greenwashing, green camouflage.
Research purpose: to develop a rationale for applying the concept of Best Available Techniques for (1) assessing resource efficient investments complying with ESG (Environmental Social Governance) principles, as well as for (2) evaluating open reporting of Russian companies. Results and discussion: the paper analyses key features and evolution of the ESG (Environmental Social Governance) concept. Authors describe the international market of ESG investment instruments and consider tendencies of the development of green, social and sustainable bonds and loans. They analyze ESG ratings and show that, due to the lack of unified approaches to collecting and assessing information, rating agencies often publish contradictory and unfounded ESG ratings. Authors demonstrate that applying the concept of Best Available Techniques (BAT) and BAT-associated sectoral environmental and resource efficiency indicators systematized in BAT Reference Documents, allows justifying ESG-related investment decisions as well as decisions on rendering state support to the priority projects aimed at the national economy development. Authors consider principles and standards of open reporting and emphasize that following recommendations of Global Reporting Initiative standards, organizations can develop and disseminate data on results achieved, their dynamics, as well as on the compliance with regulatory requirements. Such approach will help to put a restraint upon greenwashing activities. Authors analyze examples of open reports published by leading Russian companies. They point out that in order to open significant, concise, precise, equitable and objective information, Russian industrial companies should follow principles set by the Concept for the development of public (open) reporting in the Russian Federation and present a comparison of results achieved and sectoral BAT-associated resource and environmental efficiency indicators.

The Volgograd region is one of the leaders among the regions of the Russian Federation in terms of the level of gasification. At the same time, the gas motor fuel market is practically not developed. The overall gasification of the country remains at a low level for a number of reasons, the main of which is the physical impossibility of gasification of some residential areas. Attempts to use natural gas as a fuel for cars also faced a lot of problems, the main of which is the complete or partial lack of service infrastructure. Results: the use of natural gas as the main or alternative fuel is difficult due to the low gasification of the regions, lack of infrastructure, and low efficiency compared to existing energy sources.

Discussion: new technologies have an impact on all spheres of public life, and the sphere of corporate governance is no exception.

Experts note artificial intelligence as the most promising technology. Artificial intelligence in the field of corporate governance can be used to improve the efficiency of management decision-making at the board level. According to the researchers, artificial intelligence technologies can become an excellent auxiliary tool for making more effective managerial decisions due to their advantages. Within the framework of the given goal, the following were identified as the main prospects for using AI technologies: fast high-quality analytics of large volumes of data, impartiality of decisions, development of more reliable scenarios for the development of events when making certain decisions, the possibility of choosing the best solution, and others. Results: Given the high dynamism of the current market environment, high competition between market participants, large amounts of data, companies have a need for faster response and faster decision making, so the introduction of AI technologies can be a tool that can provide companies with a competitive advantage. However, it is necessary to take into account the challenges that companies will have to face when introducing and applying new technologies. These challenges are primarily related to liability, low level of legal support, ethical component and other specific issues that require further development.

Keywords: personnel policy, management problems, public administration, municipal administration, management efficiency, professional competence, human factor, labor activity.
Purpose: the goal is to show the critical dependence of state and municipal management on the personnel component. Discussion: the article analyzes both resonant problem situations in state and municipal management, as well as the empirical experience of the author’s work in government through the prism of the personnel component. In addition to the problem of external factors (information overload, etc.), management problems in relation to senior management, there are also internal factors, such as outdated linear methods of leadership, authoritarian leadership style, lack of emotional intelligence, inability to properly distribute responsibilities, nepotism, etc. Results: the conducted research allowed us to confirm the thesis that the effective functioning of the state, as well as the success or failure of a particular undertaking in the Russian state and municipal administration directly depends on the quality of staffing in state and municipal authorities.
Cross-cultural adaptation of marketing campaigns in russian-chinese economic relations
Keywords: Chinese market, mentality, marketing communications, national culture, cross-culture, international marketing, globalization, competition, integration.
Purpose: to study the processes of adaptation of marketing campaigns in Russian-Chinese economic relations. Discussion: in terms of the relevance of cross-cultural research for modern Russia, it is difficult to overestimate, since those organizational forms of international cross-cultural interactions that make up the object of research are a relatively new tool for Russian enterprises. In addition, the practice of their systematic study has not developed sufficiently in our country, and it is absolutely necessary at this stage of the development of world relations. As the processes of globalization and the integration of Russia into the world economy intensify, the problems associated with the national characteristics of the markets for Russian products become particularly important. Results: In these conditions, cross-cultural competence, including in the field of marketing communications, should take a worthy place among the key competencies of the company that ensure its competitiveness. First of all, it assumes the ability to identify marketing opportunities in the context of national culture. Insufficient attention to such competence leads not only to serious marketing miscalculations, but also to significant losses in the form of lost profits or the collapse of the business “over the hill”.

Keywords: theoretical approaches, mechanisms, adaptation, population, economic aspects, digital identification, financial incentives, integration
Purpose: to review the theoretical approaches to the study of the mechanisms of adaptation of the population. Discussion: theoretical approaches to the study of mechanisms were studied, including philosophical, technical, physiological, psychological, economic, sociological, sociocultural, managerial, financial, institutional, adaptive and spiritual; Theoretical approaches to the study of adaptation, including philosophical, evolutionary, cybernetic, biochemical, morphological, physiological, psychological, ethological, social, sociocultural, communication, informational; Theoretical approaches to the study of the population, including reproductive, spatial and social, and also justifies the conclusion about the need for an integrative approach to the study of the mechanisms of adaptation of the population in order to solve a complex of tasks. The results were investigated by generalizing and analyzing scientific works devoted to theoretical approaches to the study of the mechanisms of adaptation of the population. This made it possible to systematize key theoretical approaches to the study of the mechanisms of adaptation of the population and to identify their features. Accordingly, the adaptation of the population is due to the influence of various environmental factors, and the mechanisms of adaptation of the population are acted under the influence of diverse sources. The resolution of this contradiction is carried out through the formation and functioning of various mechanisms of adaptation of the population.
