The Global Compact in Russia was launched in November 2001 during a round table organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs in partnership with UNDP and other UN agencies. Since then Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs jointly with UNDP focused their efforts on developing an active network in Russia. 

On 10 April 2008 UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon attended the re-launch of the Global Compact Network in Russia during his meeting with over 30 top executives of Russian businesses.

The role of the Russian network will be to facilitate the progress of companies engaged in the Global Compact with respect to implementation of the ten principles, while also creating opportunities for multi-stakeholder engagement and collective action.

There are currently 24 members of the Global Compact in Russia, including big companies such as the United Company Russian Aluminum, the Russian Railways, Interros Group of companies, Renova, Sistema as well as the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP) and several NGOs.
