Social responsibility

From the very beginning, CKB has been mindful of the long-term development of the market, managing its environment in a sound and efficient manner, with social responsibility and appreciative of the fact that it is the only way to build and promote the economic development of Montenegro. CKB has been the promoter and author of numerous initiatives in Montenegrin society and a partner in the implementation of many representative projects in culture, art, science and sports.

Aware of the importance of entrepreneurial initiative in culture, CKB supported representative (economic, literary, legal, anthropological and historical) editions of the CID Publishing House, which published significant studies related to Montenegrin history, culture and nature, as well as numerous translations of capital importance. The year 2008 was marked by a couple of important engagements of the Bank in film and fine arts, in the projects that have been rated as successful by the international expert public. The movie “Look at me” of the Montenegrin director Marija Perovic was presented at prestigious festivals in the region. Recognizing the importance of Montenegrin cinematography and fine arts, CKB provided support to the Hercegfest film festival and a project by Montenegrin artist Nikola Markovic (exhibition of photographs and issuing of a monograph).

Sponsorships and co-organization of various events (concerts, Mimosa Festival, World Savings Day), assistance to health, education and science – are examples of constant social engagement of the Bank. Special attention has been devoted to children and youth, by ensuring fellowships for the best, but also through grants for UNICEF projects. The Banks has also created special products for the youngest.

Already traditional support of CKB to numerous sports clubs in football, basketball, handball, karate, has contributed to their excellent results and visibility of Montenegro on the international sports stage. Cooperation with Jadran CKB, Montenegrin water polo national team, the football champion FK Buducnost – are some of most significant partnerships of CKB.

CKB, for the first time in Montenegro, has been providing the funding for renewable sources of energy, aimed at ongoing improvement of efficient and sustainable economic, social and ecological environment.
