Corporate Social Responsibility

At TBC Bank, we believe that achieving and maintaining leadership in corporate social responsibility (CSR) is as vital as being number one in any part of our business, and this remains a core goal. As a LSE premium-listed company, we have pledged to uphold the highest International standards in conduct as an employer and corporate citizen, and we benchmark ourselves against global leaders.

 

For detailed information about our Corporate Social Responsibility you can read pages 60-65 of the Annual Report.

Business

        

 

 

We believe that one of our main contributions to society is to encourage successful businesses across Georgia. To this end, we have devised a business support programme, which allows us to share the expertise of our people and partners with growing companies. It provides crucial support for developing micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSME), which are the backbone of the national economy. The programme includes an educational web portal (www.tbcbusiness.ge) and free training sessions and consultations, as well as networking events, conferences and masterclasses.

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Young Talent

                   

In 2016, we continued to develop projects aimed at helping talented young people in their professional development. We backed new projects supporting young entrepreneurs and artists. We hosted the Da Vinci scientific festival, which aims to promote science and STEM-related fields among young people by encouraging schoolchildren to pursue their scientific interests. We plan to expand the event in 2017. In addition, we have also financed the renovation of Tbilisi’s famous Mziuri Park and opening of the non-profit Mziuri Cafe, which hosts various literary evenings, exhibitions and presentations for children and students.

 

The details about Young Talent and other Corporate Social Responsibility projects are covered in greater detail on pages 60-65 of the Annual Report.

Rugby

                       

 

 

 

We provide full-scale support for rugby in Georgia as part of a long-term partnership with the Georgian Rugby Union to promote the sport. In particular, we support our national team in its quest to succeed internationally and ultimately join the Six Nations. In 2016, we sponsored two major promotional campaigns across Georgia, which included a strong digital component to enable fans to support our players as much as possible.

 

Environment

                      

 

 

 

 

TBC Bank understands that even organizations operating outside the industrial sectors, such as financial institutions, have an impact on the environment, and we take our responsibility to take care of the surrounding environment seriously.
