Highlights from the 8th International CSR Forum held in Serbia

 

 

At the eighth annual CSR Forum conference, Responsible Business Forum Serbia member companies expressed once again their commitment to sustainable development and responsible business practices.

 

“The number of companies in Serbia that integrate CSR principles into their business strategy and develop strategic CSR programs is growing year after year. Companies are committed to meeting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and to include in their activities the objectives of quality education, good health and well-being for all, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, gender equality and ending of hunger and poverty,” said Neven Marinovic, Executive Director of the Responsible Business Forum Serbia.

 

During the conference, it was emphasised that the media should be more open to monitoring companies’ socially responsible initiatives, in order to contribute to the development of good corporate practices in Serbia.

 

A new publication, 'Recommendations for the improvement of the Law on employment and professional rehabilitation of people with disabilities', was presented at the conference, as well as examples of companies’ good practices in this domain.

 

At the conference, the Corporate Volunteer Award 2017 was presented by the Responsible Business Forum Serbia and Smart Kolektiv, recognising seven Serbian companies for their programmes of corporate volunteering, including Atlantic Group, Direct Media, Coca-Cola HBC Serbia, Banca Intesa BelgradeHemofarm, Bambi and Vojvodjanska Bank. 

 

The conference was organised with the support of CRH Serbia, Delhaize Serbia, Societe Generale Serbia, Vojvodjanska Bank, Atlantic Group for Serbia and Coca-Cola HBC Serbia. The conference was also supported by the EU Delegation to Serbia, Office for Cooperation with Civil Society and Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Serbia.
