Our Philosophy of Sustainability

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.

Environmental Responsibility

Sev.en Energy recognizes the impact of its operations on the immediate environment. Hence, the Group is performing every measure possible to reduce the effect of coal extraction and the coal-fired power station. We invest into the efficiency of our sites to make them as clean and green as possible. E.g. The Chvaletice Power Plant, where technological innovation (implemented in 2016), has significantly reduced the assets’ impact on the environment. This also includes water management and waste prevention, making and using certified energy by-products.

The Group also makes every attempt to minimize air pollution, emissions and waste. We closely monitor emissions, especially dust, and make sure they remain well under applicable standards.

Committed to reclamation and biodiversity

The Sev.en Energy Group is committed to reclamation and biodiversity. The original landscape in the ČSA and Vršany Mine`s area is a good example. It had long been affected by industrial activities, causing biodiversity to dwindle.

Introducing surface lignite mining and moving to fix the fallout has contributed to re-shaping the original industrial landscape, ensuring the emergence of unique ecosystems and increasing numbers of living species. The Sev.en Energy Group is committed to reclamation and biodiversity. The original landscape in the CSA and Vrsany mines area is a good example. It had long been affected by industrial activities, causing biodiversity to dwindle.

Since 2007, we have been publishing comprehensive sustainability reports.

Social Responsibility

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.

While this is our focus, we also do a lot of work at the national and international level. Numerous projects are funded and supported by Sev.en Energy and the owner Pavel Tykac.

We see employee care as a fundamental value

Part of our entrepreneurial outlook on doing business is the awareness of our role in society. SEG considers employee care to be a fundamental value and driver of its development. We stay in direct contact with employees in production operations. We focus on workplace safety, staff training, employee involvement in corporate governance and the provision of premium social benefits and regionally above-average financial rewards. The management holds regular meetings with the trade union and consults it on all relevant matters.
