Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

During the last three decades, sustainable development, with its three aspects—economic, social, and environmental—has become an important factor in trying to influence the everyday lives of future generations for the better. Recognizing that sustainable development needs to be monitored from a variety of perspectives, the aim is to focus on sustainable growth and development of enterprises. It is important to develop measures to establish sustainable development and the importance of the impact of all three aspects of sustainable development on future generations. The importance of sustainable development for achieving economic growth is partly the responsibility of the government to direct its policies and programs to achieve all three aspects of sustainable growth. Businesses can follow the policy and its guidelines. Enterprises need to develop a culture of sustainable organizational models to achieve a competitive advantage. Sustainable development guidelines can bring new added value to enterprises. The focus is on the economic aspect of sustainable development. The social aspect of sustainable development can be presented through the social responsibility of the enterprise and the definition of an international standard that speaks of social responsibility. The third aspect is to clarify the environmental importance of sustainable growth. The possibilities for further sustainable development of enterprises can be seen in the transition to a circular economy.

A “silver economy” can drive economic growth. The key condition is effective demand, determined by the number of financially secure members of the elderly population. The aim of this study is to assess the conditions of the Russian “silver economy”, identify the constraints on its growth, and develop recommendations for their elimination to achieve Sustainable Development Goals. We applied multivariate statistical analysis methods. The absolute and structural numbers of elderly people in Russia were found to not differ much from those in the developed countries of Europe. Their financial support exhibits several important features. A state pension plays a key role in financing the needs of Russian pensioners. Income from labor occupies the second position. Asset-based reallocations are negligible. Public programs will improve the standard of living of current pensioners. For future pensioners, it is important to increase the income received from asset-based reallocations. Russian pensioners were found to have had a negative experience of participation in the funded pension system. It is necessary to stimulate the voluntary participation of future pensioners in the funded pension system and to change the regulation of the investment activities of pension managers. In general, the formation of conditions favorable to the “silver economy” may turn it into a driver of sustainable development in Russia. Full article
