Sustainable development strategy - ENERGY FOR THE FUTURE
„We believe that being a big company means taking on more responsibility – for the people, the landscape, the environment, our employees and the regions in which we operate. Therefore, we are gradually extending the principles of sustainability to other areas of our activities.“
Member of the Board of Directors, Chief Administrative Officer and CEZ Group Sustainability Leader
CEZ Group is committed to SDGs - the Goals to Transform Our World
We respect the sustainability agenda adopted by the Czech government in the strategic Framework Czech Republic 2030 and we apply two key principles of the United Nations 2030 Agenda: quality of life and sustainability.
The Czech strategic framework is based on seventeen global sustainable development goals (SDGs) adapted by the United nations member States in 2015. We link the selected global topics to CEZ Group’s sustainable development strategy.
In 2015, countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals. In 2016, the Paris Agreement on climate change entered into force, addressing the need to limit the rise of global temperatures
The Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.
