Throughout our history, corporate social responsibility and transparency have been part of our DNA. That is why we regularly report on our sustainability activities. Long-term protection of the environment and respecting the rights of neighbouring communities are guiding principles when making entrepreneurial decisions.
We are particularly engaged in the communities near our physical assets and encourage regional development. Most of our employees live close to the mines and power stations. We feel it to be our role to actively improve the quality of life in the respective regions, working closely together with municipalities and institutions. In cooperative efforts, we work to improve education or offer sport and leisure activities.
Moreover, the Sev.en Energy Group acknowledges its environmental obligations. Operating clean and efficient sites is one of the Group’s main focus points. We take various measures to reduce the production of emissions and waste. Two of the units at Chvaletice Power Plant have been modernized, making the site one of the cleanest and most efficient brown-coal-fired power stations in the Czech republic.
Besides these efforts, in the wake of brown-coal mining, the Group has done plenty of landscape rehabilitation and continues to do so, e.g. in the Ústí nad Labem region. Since 2013, we have been publishing comprehensive sustainability reports that cover our corporate social responsibility goals and activities.
