The success of a
company is not only reflected in its excellent business results, but also in
the responsible relations with the environment and society.We
from RIKO also measure the value of our company by our activities of
sponsorship and patronage.
patience, cooperativeness, motivation, discipline and team spirit are qualities
that are typically developed through sports. Our support to sports is also
intended for these values.
excellent position of RIKO as one of the most prominent supporters of the best
artists and of culture events in the eyes of the Slovene public shows just how
closely RIKO is connected with cultural associations and artists. Therefore, the environment in which RIKO operates gains an awareness of
the values which reach far beyond production, and people are given a starting
point for a more colourful and qualitative life.
We are the proud supporters of many cultural and
arts institutions, festival events, selected projects and creators.
We focus our attention
as a patron on initiatives whose content and purpose is to encourage, search,
learn and consolidate already existing social, business, economic, educational
and similar forms.
»Janez is a businessman and an entrepreneur. He clearly enjoys the deals and the design of the project he is involved with. And, very obviously, he is good at it. But the business is not great project of his life. That is Slovenia, its history, language, culture and, crucially, its future. That future will be delivered by the next generation. They are the ones whom Janez really wants to interest in his project. The business, while worthwhile in themselves, service his cause.«
