2,000 dinars from each loan granted during November and December 2021 will be used for CSR projects over the next year

For each cash loan and refinancing loan exceeding RSD200,000 that’s granted during November and December 2021, UniCredit will allocated RSD2,000 for CSR projects to be implemented during 2022. As part of its campaign, entitled “20 years of striving together to start good things”, UniCredit will began celebrating the 20th anniversary of its operations in Serbia. The funds raised over the course of these two months will be used by UniCredit for activities to support the society and local communities, with the goal of preserving and protecting the environment and natural resources in Serbia.

UniCredit Bank Serbia, which is part of Uni Credit Group – a successful pan-European banking group – has been present on the Serbian market since 2001. During the 20 years of its successful operations in our country, UniCredit Bank Serbia has financed numerous green economy projects and conducted a large number of CSR activities. It has also been the local market leader in financing energy from wind farms, having financed five of the nine wind farm projects implemented in Serbia.

Now that we are marking this important milestone, we wished to do something together with our clients, who have always been at the core of our operations – Nikola Vuletić, CEO UniCredit Bank Serbia

“During all the years of UniCredit’s presence in Serbia, we have always strived to be more than a bank, to make a difference and leave a mark with our operations, approach and contribution. Now that we are marking this important milestone, we wished to do something together with our clients, who have always been at the core of our operations; something with which we hope to forever pay back the community in which we live and work. We are aware of the importance of protecting and preserving the environment and natural resources. That’s why we will dedicate our 20th anniversary campaign to activities focused on specific financial assistance, as well as raising awareness of the importance of protecting and investing in our country’s natural resources, because it is only when we preserve everything that we have that we can be certain that we will be able to celebrate the next 20 years, and that we will do so in a better and nicer environment,” says UniCredit Serbia CEO Nikola Vuletić.

As part of its 20th anniversary celebration, UniCredit will publish the amount of funds raised on its website every day until the end of the year. These funds will be invested in projects aimed at protecting and preserving Serbia’s natural resources and wonders that need support the most.
