Sponsorship and charity initiatives for a sustainable community development

In 2016, RCB became a strategic partner of the Cyprus National Olympic Committee (NOC), which promotes the values and ideals of Olympism in Cyprus. Both the Cyprus NOC and RCB Bank have the common goals of ensuring an excellent representation of the country at the international sporting stage.

Since the beginning of his professional career, the Bank has been sponsoring the sailor, Olympic medalist and World champion Pavlos Kontides, whose exceptional performance is taking him to the highest level in the international sports. At RCB Bank, we believe in pushing talent towards greater horizons, therefore we support athletes in various sports.

For many years, RCB has been supporting Cyprus Institute of Neurology & Genetics. One of the projects is a pioneering long term research program aimed at diagnosing and studying diseases with the use of new DNA technology. The program allows to diagnose patients that up until today remained undiagnosed, and find the cause of the decrease at the genetic level. Also with the help of the Bank, the Institute upgraded its physiotherapy equipment.

We are strong advocates of a greener environment and we are committed to helping Cyprus to meet and exceed its renewable energy targets. Therefore, the Bank finances photovoltaic solar parks, which are further successfully connected to the national grid.

Growing significance of environmental aspects is also reflected in a number of green initiatives supported by RCB employees. Bank’s volunteers participate in the rejuvenation of Troodos Mountains following the devastating forest fires and cleaning beaches in Limassol, all in the efforts to restore and preserve the natural beauty of Cyprus.

Our focus is primarily directed to such high-impact areas as health care and social welfare. Through long-term funding and support, RCB Bank helps educational, healthcare and public assistance institutions. During Covid-19 crisis, the Bank donated 12 ventilators (medical breathing machines) and medical face shields to support Cyprus in its fight with pandemic.

We also develop partnership with different non-governmental organizations to overcome complex health and social issues and improve the society we live in.
