Miroslav Gligorijević, the General Manager of TITAN Cementara Kosjerić, congratulated the winners and expressed his gratitude to all the participants in the competition: “One of the fundamental principles on which we base our business is the cherishing of an open dialogue with the local community, in respect of all issues of common interest, and the “For my Kosjerić” contest is just another aspect of our efforts to encourage all citizens to jointly facilitate the achievement of better living conditions. We hope that the awarded projects will this year also contribute to this. All our investment in the local community aims to support and help ideas that improve the quality of life in Kosjerić and ensure sustainable development. We believe that collaboration, inclusion, transparent communication, and general welfare are the conditions for good business performance, just as good business results are the prerequisite for a better life and a better society”.
The representative of the jury, Ivana Matović, the Quality Manager at TITAN Cementara Kosjerić, commended a large number of applications, and stressed that this year the quality of the projects has significantly improved in comparison to previous years, in response to the most important selection criteria, such as longevity, solution to specific problems, achievement of benefits for citizens, sustainability, and compliance of the project with the values of TITAN Cementara Kosjerić.
Last year’s winners of the “For my Kosjerić” contest presented their achievements and results of the projects, encouraging citizens and organisations to get involved and use their energy for the improvement and development of local community.
