In line with our endeavor to further strengthen the relations and deepen our transparent communication and engagement with all our stakeholders, on September 17, 2015 Cementarnica USJE organized a stakeholder engagement forum. At the forum our 2014 CSR & Sustainability Report was communicated with 65 representatives of all our stakeholder groups, including local community, customers, contractors and suppliers, other businesses, as well as relevant parties in environmental area from MoEPP, NGO’s, relevant academia representatives to discuss and receive feedback related to the data and targets published in our Report.
The event was opened with presentation by our CED, Mr. Boris Hrisafov of USJE CSR & Sustainability Report 2014, which is the first Advanced Level report according to UNGC Policy criteria asserted by independent Business Assurance Company.
The presentation of the Report was followed by discussion aimed at receiving feedback and providing guidelines for planning and improvement of our Company’s future corporate social responsibility activities. In the discussion, among the other, representatives of the Municipality, the Ministry of Environment, the Secretariat of the UN GC local network, the academia and of other business took part.
The Forum went in positive, but also constructive atmosphere, because besides positive statements from the participants about our Report, we have also listened to the recommendations, suggestions and fresh ideas by our stakeholders. All this will help us further improve our CSR agenda in direction of our continuous endeavor for developing CSR in the country and trying to disseminate best practices.
