Action “For a more beautiful Bor”
RTB, as a socially responsible company, which is through its operations initiating the overall trade situation, has been participating in reconstruction and construction of infrastructure in Bor, Majdanpek and villages in these two municipalities. Having in mind the fact that positive effects on the non-ferrous metals world market and the global financial market should not be of benefit only to RTB, but also to the citizens of the municipalities in which the company operates, the management has decided to, first of all, help the Municipality of Bor in refurbishment of the town for whose current looks, after one century of mining, RTB is significantly responsible also.
Investment in refurbishment of the town and the villages in the Municipality of Bor (white washing of facades, refurbishment of roads and street lighting, construction of a zoo, construction of an Aged Care Home, construction of a playground adjacent to the Culture Centre, construction of seven roundabouts, refurbishment of the sports complex behind the Sports Centre (skate and aqua park, carting, labyrinth, balloon hall, horse track), refurbishment of the airport, construction of a ski lift at Crni Vrh mountain, construction of fountains, refurbishment of the plateau in front of the City Culture Centre, refurbishment of the hotel “Jezero” on Bor Lake, equipping of the theatre and reconstruction of the ballet and concert hall at the School of Music, equipping of the Centre for daily care of children with special needs “Mozaik”, refurbishment of churches and culture centers in villages, replacement of lighting and construction of access roads to certain villages…) will contribute to a significantly better social ambient of the Municipality of Bor.
