As part of Société Générale Group, Podgorička bank participates for the first time in the competition Citizen Act which is organized for students in countries where the Bank operates. The intention is that the issue of corporate social responsibility is implemented with young people and to prepare them for the application of this concept in their future working experience.

Podgorička bank Société Générale Group as part of one of the largest banking groups respects the principles of socially responsible business in its everyday activities. In the previous period, the Bank has been recognized as a company which supports health care, education, culture and spheres of general social interest. Not only companies but also the individuals should be aware of the importance of social responsibility because people create general good for all of us. That is why Podgorička bank Société Générale Group dedicates the project Citizen Act to young people and to promotion of social responsibility importance among students and youth.

As part of Société Générale Group, Podgorička bank participates for the first time in the competition Citizen Act which is organized for students in countries where the Bank operates. The intention is that the issue of corporate social responsibility is implemented with young people and to prepare them for the application of this concept in their future working experience.

I believe that UDG students will make a remarkable performance at this competition because the knowledge, skills and capacities required by this project are exactly what we develop with them during their studies. I congratulate Podgorička bank on becoming the part of this global project of SG Group and I want them to make this project traditional! "
