Yesterday 10 June 2021, at an official ceremony in the Balkan Hotel, the 18th consecutive edition of the “Annual Responsible Business Awards” was held – the most authoritative national competition for corporate social responsibility and sustainable development, which is held under the motto “Give a good example” and is organized by Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum.
At the event, Comac Medical received two awards for the program “Road to the University” a joint project of Comac Medical and the Bulgarian Memory Foundation. The aim of the initiative is to support young people living in small remote settlements in Bulgaria, with limited opportunities for development, as well as young people from families with low social status and different ethno-religious background, to gain access to free courses in school subjects they can use to apply to the desired higher education institutions, and then to develop in the professions of their dreams.
The first award was presented to Comac Medical by the Minister of Education and Science Prof. Nikolay Denkov – second place in the category “Investor in Knowledge” among 27 nominations in it. At the award ceremony, Minister Denkov humorously reminded the attendees that Comac Medical was about to become a serial recipient of awards, after the company was recently granted with the Pythagoras award in the category “Company with the biggest investment in research and development in Bulgaria”.
The second award that Comac Medical received for the evening was the special “Engage” award of the British Embassy in Sofia for the employees’ contribution to a responsible project of the company. The award was presented by Tim Buceret, Head of the International Trade Department at the British Embassy. Comac has been chosen among all 78 companies and a total of 111 projects that took part in this year’s edition of the Annual Responsible Business Awards.
