Today, at Pullman Tbilisi Axis Towers Hotel, the fifth award ceremony of the Corporate Responsibility Award in Georgia was held at the initiative of the Global Compact Network Georgia and with the support of the Swedish government and USAID. The competition aims to strengthen the culture of corporate responsibility in the country and encourage businesses’ involvement in implementing sustainable development agendas.
JSC “Liberty Bank” won the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 9 – industry, innovation and infrastructure, with the project: “Teleclinic MyDoc”.
Liberty, in partnership with telemedicine company “Teleclinic MyDoc” and American Hospital, initiated implementing an innovative technological project a few months ago. Within the framework of the project, it became possible to conduct high-tech medical diagnostic examinations remotely for the elderly and socially vulnerable in the most remote villages and regions of Georgia. To date, “Teleclinic MyDoc”, in parallel with the Liberty Mobile Bank vehicles, has already visited 112 villages, and as a result, about 2,000 elderly people were examined and referred to the relevant specialists.
“In 2022, Liberty presented its new Corporate Responsibility strategy, which fully aligns with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Due to our activity and its scale, we constantly strive to implement such projects and programs that will increase access to education, financial literacy, and people’s health.
Today, we are honoured to be the winning company of the Corporate Responsibility Award. This award gives each member of the Liberty team bigger encouragement to keep on caring for people and creating services tailored to their needs. I would like to thank our partners and our team members involved in this project. We are delighted that Global Compact Network Georgia gave to the project such high recognition and evaluation.’ – Beka Gogichaishvili, Chief Executive Officer of Liberty Bank.
