“The focus of companies around the world is shifting from the traditional corporate social responsibility principles to the effort to combine the achievement of financial success with community welfare, with the goals of sustainable development being a key driver. It is our pleasure to be part of the Corporate Social Responsibility Committee at the US Chamber of Commerce in Bosnia and Herzegovina and have the opportunity to share our rich experience in managing sustainability and socially responsible business. The sustainability strategy is a key component of the RBI Group’s business policy,” said Belma Hadžiomerović, head of Marketing and Corporate Communications & Sustainability Management at Raiffeisen Bank BiH, adding that last year, at the level of the entire group, a total of 1594 projects were supported in the total amount of EUR 3.5 million.
The Committee for Corporate Social Impact in Bosnia and Herzegovina was established by the American Chamber of Commerce in BiH (AMCHAM BiH) with its members. The purpose of the establishment of this body is to help companies develop clear strategies and long-term goals for supporting the society of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Committee was founded on September 18, and besides Raiffeisen Bank, the founding members are the Propulsion Fund, UniCredit Bank, Addico Bank BiH and Molson Coors BiH.
“The AmCham BiH CSI Committee represents a platform for information exchange and promotion of structured management in the segment of an engaged corporate citizen. The growing importance of corporate social responsibility in our community is noticeable in the increase of corporate investments, which is why the Chamber is proud of its socially responsible companies, members who recognized the need to set up the AmCham BiH Corporate Social Impact (CSI) Committee,” said Violeta Čibukčić, Executive Director of AMCHAM BiH.
In addition to the regular annual financial report, Raiffeisen Bank International has also produced a Sustainability Management Report, describing the economic, environmental and social impact of the Group’s business activities in the domain of sustainability in line with GRI standards.
The 130-year-old Raiffeisen group combines the achievement of financial success with socially responsible business, whereby economic, environmental and social responsibility form one whole, following the basic principles of social solidarity, self-help and sustainability established by Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen.
