The best practices of the business sector for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals
The awarding ceremony for the companies that have integrated the Sustainable Development Goals into their business was held in the hotel Metropol Palace in Belgrade, as part of the conference CSR & ESG Forum, as an annual event of the Responsible Business Forum.
This year, the “Champions of Sustainability” award was presented for the second time. The purpose of this award is to highlight the projects that directly contribute to the fulfilment of the Sustainable Development Agenda. Awards for outstanding contribution to various sub-goals of the 2030 Agenda were given to numerous companies, TITAN Cementara Kosjerić being among them, for the project: “Integrated Annual Report 2021”.
“This is already the second consecutive year that the Forum highlights successful business projects that contribute to the fulfilment of the 2030 Agenda. Through awarding recognition, we want to further motivate these companies to continue with this practice, but also to encourage others to start thinking about it”, said Neven Marinović, on behalf of the Responsible Business Forum.
