NIS winner of the Faculty of Technical Sciences Cacak plaque

NIS was awarded the plaque of the Faculty of Technical Sciences Cacak, by which this higher education institution officially expressed its gratitude to NIS for improving the quality of work for students and employees, environmental protection in the academic district of City of Cacak and improving the quality of air in the local community.

The plaque was presented to NIS as a gratitude for the completion of the project entitled “Improving the Energy Efficiency of the Faculty of Technical Sciences Cacak, with the aim of improving the quality of work and air in the local community”, which included the replacement of old metal facade windows with aluminum windows. The project was supported by NIS through its Corporate Social Responsibility Program “Together for the Community”.

This significant recognition was given to NIS at a ceremony organized on the occasion of the Day of the Faculty of Technical Sciences Cacak, during which awards were given to the best students of the faculty and to business entities. The representatives of the City of Cacak, professors and students from the Faculty of Technical Sciences Cacak, the University of Kragujevac, representatives of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development, as well as representatives of NIS, attended the ceremony.

Old windows on the faculty building were energetically inefficient, which directly affected the consumption of coal for heating the building, and consequently the increase of harmful gases emissions into the environment. Result of the measurement of emission of gases, which was realized by the Health Protection Institute in Cacak, showed that the emissions exceeded the limit values and thus adversely affected the ecological situation and public health of the citizens of Cacak. Responsibility for resources and environmental protection is among NIS’s business priorities, and NIS supported this project through its Corporate Social Responsibility Program “Together for the Community” in the amount of one and a half million dinars.

Nebojsa Mitrovic, Dean of the Faculty of Technical Sciences Cacak, spoke about the 43 successful years of the faculty, but also about the implemented projects to improve their work and the companies that helped them. “Cooperation is the key word. In order to have good working conditions it was necessary to improve the infrastructure of the building of our faculty. In that sense, we received extraordinary support from the Petroleum Industry of Serbia through the ‘Together for the Community’ Program, thanks to which we managed to change the windows”, said Dean Mitrovic.

Stefan Despotovic, director of NIS’s Department of External Communications, stated on this occasion: “The recognition we received today is extremely important to NIS. Social responsibility is a strategic commitment of NIS and it is not just a phrase, but our fundamental practice that we confirm on a daily basis. The project that we supported this year at your faculty is a confirmation of this commitment. When we talk about cooperation between NIS and City of Cacak, I would like to point out that it is extremely good, not only in the domain of business activities, but also in the field of socially responsible projects. For the past five years, NIS and Cacak have successfully cooperated within the framework of the “Together for the Community” Program, and during this time, we implemented about 30 projects in the territory of the City. We have a common goal – to create a better future for the community in which we live and work. I can announce that in the years ahead, we will realize even more successful projects.”

Social responsibility program “Together for Community” has been implemented by NIS for ten consecutive years in 12 towns and municipalities across Serbia, and within this program more than one billion RSD have been invested for the realization of more than 900 projects that helped the development of local communities.
