Honda halted exports to Russia. The company made a €1m contribution and said it "sincerely wishes that the current emergency situation will come to an end as soon as possible and that peace will be restored all around the world".
Date of Announcement: 2 March 2022
Our Moral Verdict
The 2 March date looks good, but it was worded as an unconvincing, PR type of do-good-feel-good statement. Not a word of criticism towards Russia, and fuzzier than most of the Mealy-Mouthers we have monitored. Who, after all, would not want world peace? Also, the statement came after a Domino Exit had already been unleashed in the sector by Mercedes-Benz (formerly Daimler), after which GM and BMW followed one another with about a day's lag. Finally, Honda turned up. As a result, we gave it a Chicken Penalty which took its Speed Score down from 8 to 6. Moreover, it was an easy decision for the company: it was only exporting to Russia and the action involved little Sacrifice compared to some of the others, based on the tiny fraction of revenues from Russia. Compared to this de minimus Exposure level, we calculated the withdrawal impact of a large foreign brand like Honda was five times greater than the pain to the company. Honda should have gone for this 500% Return on Sacrifice opportunity earlier and become the moral leader of the sector at a very low cost.

On 2 March, IBM described the "deteriorating situation involving Ukraine and Russia". Reuters reported that IBM had taken no sides on a call with employees that day and hundreds of workers had objected in response. Apparently, the CEO may have used the word "conflict" because next he said, "I'd like to acknowledge that the correct word to use is "war" not "conflict." He added, "we condemn the Russian war in Ukraine."

In terms of its plans, on 3 March IBM said, "In addition to not selling technology in Russia, we do not do business with Russian military organizations". On 6 March, IBM revised its position saying it had "stopped selling technology in Russia". Then, on 7 March, the CEO said he had heard from many employees and revised the position yet again, saying, "we have suspended all business in Russia." The Wall Street Journal has reported that companies including IBM have faced threats from the Russian government of arrest or asset seizures for withdrawing or criticizing Russia. On 9 May, the CEO told Reuters, "The government has not really taken our assets," and in the same interview said the company's ability to keep supporting employees in Russia "may go away" as sanctions build. On 7 June, it had “started to lay off its employees” in light of escalating sanctions impact its ability to retain its staff.

Date of Announcement: 7 March 2022
Our Moral Verdict
This is a story of pulling teeth. It looks like IBM management didn't want its teeth pulled and it has been reported that people ranging from its Ukrainian employees, mainstream employees and the Ukrainian government wanted them pulled. The story of IBM's cutting of Russian links looks like 'too little, too late' in both actions and words. The statements about the war morphed almost by the day, as did statements about what IBM was exactly doing or not. After the dust settled, the CEO said, "We're all learning as we go." You can say that again. Since the statements were on each other's heels, we rated the company on the last of the string, that of 7 March. On this basis, the Announcement is Full, in the sense that the company did make the commitment across all lines of business. However, it's incomplete because the operations are not slated for sale. Indeed, IBM was keeping employees on the payroll, with the argument that it was not their fault (true, but irrelevant to our rating system). For making the employee carve-out, IBM is classified as Nibbler. Despite all of this gnashing of teeth, the company was actually fast compared to the Announcements from peers, a week ahead of Fujitsu, two weeks ahead of NEC and a month ahead of Accenture, for which we gave IBM a Leader of Pack Bonus. Its Attitude Score was harmed by abysmal leadership comments on the war and low financial support for Ukraine as a percentage of profits. IBM has a lot of Exposure to Russia. Based on the CFO telling the Wall Street Journal that 3.48% of its profits were involved, we initially gave it an 8 Exposure Score but topped this up to 10 because it has been threatened by the Russian government in the form of arrest or expropriation. IBM had a 10 in Power over Russia because of its Pull the Rug effect which is significant. This is a company that looks like it is being dragged out of Russia by a combination of sanctions, unhappy employees, and an unhappy sovereign government on its case. Thankfully, it has been forced to take a position it will find difficult to row back from if the wind changes slightly. We are watching to see if it disbands its employees and reaches a greater point of no return.

The company made an Announcement that it will close its Moscow office, resign from positions held on the board of the Russian insurer Ingosstrakh, in which it holds a minority stake of 38.5%, and "wind down" Europ Assistance’s Russian business. It said it had been “closely monitoring” the situation since the start of the war in Ukraine.
Date of Announcement: 3 March 2022
Our Moral Verdict

This is like the fable of the tortoise and the hare. Generali, the hare, was fast to act but didn’t win the race. It leaped ahead of peer companies Axa and Zurich, a full two months before the latter, for which it got 6 points in Speed.

However, when we look at what Generali actually did, it was almost worthless: it resigned directorships instead of making any promise to sell its stake in Ingosstrakh and made the vague statement it would ‘wind down’ its Russian insurance business instead of committing to close and sell it. Therefore, it got only 0.4 for Degree.

The hare should wake up and get to the finish line in the style of Zurich, with a real commitment to sell out completely. It is not alone in being disappointing. Generali and Axa are competitors in the market, but they are also competitors in the ‘moral market’ to such an extent that it is difficult to separate one from the other. Both curtailed their directly owned business in Russia with carve-outs (making them Nibblers in our terminology). Both failed to make any move out of their investments in minority stakes in Russian businesses. And both resigned from the boards of those companies, as though that somehow makes it okay. Both can be admonished for the same deficiencies in a single breath.

Saint-Gobain has stopped exports and imports with Russia and Belarus. It said, "Local activities are now operating at a minimum and in autonomous mode to maintain the employment of employees and to mitigate the consequences of this war for them and their families, in accordance with our corporate social responsibility".

The company also stated that all "investment projects" had been canceled. In addition to showing "solidarity" with Ukraine, it said, "The group strongly condemns this war."

Date of Announcement: 22 March 2022
Our Moral Verdict

Saint-Gobain is a Confused Humanitarian, in this case on behalf of Russian employees and families, citing social responsibility in its company policies as the reason it would continue production in Russia. Social responsibility needs to extend to the impact you have on society at large and not just employees. The use of the words "as a minimum" to describe ongoing production is vague. It also threw in a Red Herring about not making future investments.

Continuing some level of production, regardless of the excuse, gets a low credit in Degree, which was brought up a bit for completely withdrawing from exports and imports. The company was also slow to do so little, following CRH and Holcim by nearly three weeks, for which it got a Chicken Penalty.

This too-little-too-late company at least condemned the war, which qualified it for Denouncer status, but the contrast between the poor action and strong words put it into the Big Talker category. We calculated its Exposure at only 1.3 which makes all of its efforts to explain itself even less understandable.

According to Universal's company statement, Comcast-owned Universal Pictures, "paused planned theatrical releases in Russia." The next day, Russia lost its retransmission on the Sky platforms that are owned by Comcast, as reported by Broadband TV News. On March 8th, Universal Music Group, owned by Comcast, said via a company statement that it was "suspending all operations in Russia and closing [its] offices there." Comcast Business also said that it is "waiving charges for calls, data, and Global Travel Pass usage to and from Ukraine" for customers from 20 February to 31 May.
Date of Announcement: 1 March 2022
Our Moral Verdict
Comcast's Announcement was Full and almost Complete, which is why it didn't get a 10 in Degree. It was quite fast to make its move, but other peers got out first, resulting in 6 for Speed. The company fell behind on Attitude. We didn't spot a statement about the war, so we classed it as a Strong Silent Type. Nor did we monitor any donation to help Ukraine. All of these factors eroded its Moral Rating and brought it down to 65. Breaking with Russia was a good moral-commercial move to make. We calculated the Exposure across the different businesses at 1 compared to the 10 it had in Power. We give mass market entertainment channels and services credit for a high Multiplier Effect because of their Ostracizing impact on large numbers of people locally. The result is that Comcast was looking at a 10 to 1 Return on Sacrifice opportunity and it's no surprise that it made the decision to get out.

According to the company's Announcement, it took the decision to "temporarily" close its "own" stores and directly operated counters, as well as "suspending industrial and national media investments", and closing its "own brand" e-commerce sites in Russia. It said it was "still taking care" of its 2,500 Russian employees. It pledged donations of up to €5 million with the words, "strongly condemn the Russian invasion."
Date of Announcement: 8 March 2022
Our Moral Verdict
This is a case of a company doing something by half measure and then only to some degree. L'Oréal has stopped is retailing-facing businesses, but the Announcement doesn't close off its product sales through other people's stores. On top of what we define as Half-Hearted, it said the decision was "temporary". Also, it is classified as a Nibbler for continuing to support its 2,500 employees. All these deficiencies continue to feed the Russian economy. The statement wasn't helpful, explaining what the company temporarily did rather than what it didn't (manufacturing in Russia), and it included a Red Herring about not making future investments. What we need to know is when it will stop what it is doing, rather than that it will not do what it isn’t yet doing! L'Oréal waited to make its move until after P&G, for which we gave it a Chicken Penalty on Speed. Unlike many Confused Humanitarian peer companies in the consumer product sector, it resisted the temptation to say it was producing essential goods. Indeed, that would be a stretch for a brand associated more with cosmetic than pure health, and luxury rather than staple. L'Oréal might have been furious to see P&G making “personal care" one of its carve-outs. Against all of this, L'Oréal strangely was a Denouncer, with a bold statement against Russia. This might make propagandized Russian consumers less likely to want to touch L'Oréal products still on the shelves. Like Unilever, this is either a case of hypocrisy or one part of the company thinks Russia is bad and the other thinks it is fine to do business there.

It said it would suspend support services to Russian airlines, as well as the supply of spare parts to the country. The statement also said that The Airbus Engineering Center in Russia (ECAR) has "put on hold all its operations for Airbus" and is "analyzing" export control sanctions to determine whether engineering services, which ECAR provides to its Russian customers, can be maintained. According to Business Insider, the company will keep importing titanium from Russia, since Russia provides half of Airbus' needs.
Date of Announcement: 2 March 2022
Our Moral Verdict
Airbus' behavior doesn't match up to Boeings'. The company is trying to do the least possible against the realities and pressures it has faced. Let's start with the timing. It made its Announcement on 2 March. Boeing had already moved on 28 February, for which Airbus gets a Chicken Penalty of 2 points in its Speed Score. To make matters worse, it only made a Partial move: it will continue importing Russian titanium, directly and indirectly. It was also figuring out if its Airbus Engineering Center in Russia would be allowed to continue to serve Russian customers under export control sanctions. This shows where its heart really is and makes its move not only Partial but also Incomplete. The company is clearly trying not to cut off Russia, and instead is simply doing what it practically must rather than morally should do. As a case of Partial & Incomplete, it gets only 4 points for Degree. The shortfall on both dimensions seems intentional. Of course, it has its commercial reasons – it is more dependent on Russian titanium than Boeing is – but it was Airbus' choice to be dependent on a regime-run nation that has been heading in the wrong direction for years, so the reason is no valid excuse. Against this behavior, it is no surprise we saw no statement against Russia – silence compared to Boeing's middle-of-the-road comment – the absence of which landed Airbus in the Strong Silent Type category. The way to understand and condone Airbus' behavior is to look at its Exposure, which we calculated at 7 compared to 2 for Boeing. The principal point is the very high dependency on Russian titanium, which, unlike Russian dependency on the West, is one of the few Russian exports that can interrupt Western production. As a rough guide, we judge this makes a total withdrawal from Russia 3.5 times more painful for Airbus than Boeing. Airbus, as the world's largest aircraft producer, needs to step up to a moral leadership position and make a Full and Complete withdrawal from Russia.

The company classifies its activities in Russia as an investment, called AliExpress Russia (a joint venture, of which it owns 48%). AliExpress Russia currently controls about 10% of Russia's e-commerce market. Nikkei Asia first reported via an "employee with knowledge on the matter" that "its joint venture in Russia has laid off about 40% of employees since the invasion of Ukraine". This is believed to be a result of Western sanctions' impact on the Russian market, leaving these positions untenable for the company.
Our Moral Verdict
We were not sure whether we should compare Alibaba morally with Amazon, to show the contrast, or with fellow-Chinese company JD.com, to show the moral similarity. One is a comparison of apples and oranges and the other a comparison of two rotten apples. Comparing a company from a democracy with one from a totalitarian state is dramatic but perhaps obvious. We will look at Alibaba both ways. Amazon is one of a handful of companies in the world that has been able to get out of Russia completely. We graded it Full & Complete twelve days after the invasion. Alibaba is at the opposite end of the spectrum. It's a pity that the two companies don't have the same customers because the moral difference might win Amazon a lot of new users. Like JD.com, Alibaba operates in Russia with its strong local partner, with Alibaba owning 48% in AliExpress. Both JD.com and Alibaba ship Chinese and foreign goods into Russia from their own China-based platforms. Both have the Chinese government as cover for their inactions and both stand to gain from Russia's increasing dependence on trade with China. Indeed, we could say one is copying the other, were it not for the fact that inaction has no date to show which failed to act first. The only difference we see is in Exposure level. Alibaba's 48% stake in AliExpress is worth $3.2bn (1.25% of Alibaba's own market value), which translates to a 3.8 Exposure Score. This compares to JD's Exposure level of 2. So, mathematically, we can say that Alibaba is 75% less likely, or at least less motivated, to leave Russia. Unless of course one chooses to be more moral than the other!

The company discontinued "new capital investments" in Russia, and suspended media, advertising, and promotion. It reduced its Russian activities "significantly" to "focus" on providing "basic health, hygiene and personal care items" needed by Russians who "depend on them", as per its 7 March Announcement.

The company condemned aggression "in any circumstance" and said its hearts go out to "all people who endure the unspeakable toll of war". It said it would support its employees in Russia.

Date of Announcement: 7 March 2022
Our Moral Verdict
P&G got almost everything wrong except the timing. It beat Unilever and L’Oréal by 24 hours, for which it got a Leader of the Pack bonus. After that, everything went downhill. Its move was Partial & Incomplete. Partial because it excluded health-related products, as a Confused Humanitarian does, and Incomplete by continuing to support employees, as a Nibbler does. Although it used the word "focus" to describe the continuing products, we don't know if it is focused on the majority of what it had. On top of that, after a Red Herring statement about not making future investments, it had poor Attitude, with a Mealy-Mouther statement that didn't clearly take sides. To make matters worse, it would be a small Sacrifice even if the company withdrew from every product because we estimate Russia at less than 1% of profits. To make matters worse still, this small Exposure compares to a Power Score of 8.5 since P&G employs about 5,000 people in Russia and could have had an Ostracizing effect by pulling so many consumer brands from the shelves. This meant P&G was looking at an 850% Return on Sacrifice. It's a pity it made only a slice of this commercial-moral investment. It needs to cut the rest and sell the factories.

our Moral Badges

Notice

The entire website and our rating methodology are based on a company’s involvement with Russia being measured by Announcements.

We measure this against the ways a company can be involved with Russia through its Activities.

Please also be aware of the Scope of our research, limitations due to Incomplete Information, our Rating Methodology , and our policy relating to any Errors, Omissions & Corrections.

Also, be aware that brands carry the rating information of the company that owns, controls or is associated with them as defined more precisely in Brands Displayed.

The basis of “Rating as of” date is explained here.

Want to give us information on a company?

We will be extending our service from the top 200 companies in the world to the top 500. We are interested in information about their continuing involvement with or in Russia from reliable published sources.

Want to suggest a correction to your company?

If you represent a corporation and feel it is inaccurately or otherwise unfairly presented, you should email us in the window below a scan of a document signed by a director of the ultimate parent company (“Parent”) we listed on the site, stating your position about our information as of the ‘Rating as of’ date listed below our information providing a clear factual statement in support of your disagreement in such a manner and in sufficient detail that we will be able to re-rate the company in accordance with our Rating Methodology. If you do not provide sufficient detail, we will not consider re-rating and do not have time to engage in discussions but will solely consider sufficiently comprehensive information via this process.

Contact Moral Rating Agency

You can contact us by filling in this form. We will respond if and when able and thank you in advance in case we are unable to attend to your communication due to the volume of inquiries.
