Commitment to Social

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.


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.

Main SDGs
Decent Work and Economic Growth
Decent Work and Economic Growth

Sustained economic growth positively affects the whole world. The goal is the promotion of sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all. We must protect labour rights and promote safe and secure working environments for all workers. In our VISION 2030—Clean Energy of Tomorrow, we have set a long-term goal to maintain the position of a first-choice employer. We want to maintain the reputation of an attractive company that is also a top employer. We provide competitive remuneration while respecting gender neutrality and the principle of equal pay for equal or equivalent work. Depending on the performance of the company, team, and individuals, we adjust salaries accordingly each year.

Reduced Inequalities
Reduced Inequalities

CEZ Group has always been a responsible corporate citizen. We believe that providing equal opportunities and promoting diversity and inclusion is a natural way of doing business innovatively and sustainably. We strongly advocate diversity, equal opportunities, and a respectful working environment. Our strategy to bridge inequalities is outlined in the Code of Conduct. At the same time, we strive to cultivate good community relationships as the basis for long-term sustainable development. In December 2021, the Board of Directors adopted a Diversity and Inclusion Policy, binding for all CEZ Group companies. The policy protects vulnerable groups of employees and provides them with opportunities. It includes measures to improve employment conditions for employees over 50, employees with disabilities, parents of young children, LGBT+, and informal caregivers.

Other SDGs
  • No Poverty

    Decarbonization and coal exit will affect our employees and the regions where we do business – the E impacts the S. At the same time, we do not forget vulnerable customers, such as people with disabilities. In our business, we must minimize negative impacts on the most vulnerable groups, and that requires a strong G. To mitigate these impacts, collective agreements with trade unions guarantee just transition to our employees, and our policies declare our commitments and responsibilities publicly to all stakeholders.

  • Zero Hunger

    In CEZ Group, we contribute to meeting the SDG 2 criteria primarily by two means: through the CEZ Foundation and by providing opportunities and fair working conditions. The CEZ Foundation actively supports projects focused on nutrition and the fight against hunger. We collaborate with non-profits and social enterprises that care for people in need.

  • Good Health and Well-Being

    In CEZ Group, the Board of Directors is responsible for the Environmental Protection and Safety Policy and the Energy Policy. The policies prioritize Environmental Management System (EMS) according to ISO 14001 and the Energy Management System according to ISO 50001. As a responsible corporate citizen, we offer our employees a wide range of benefits and incentives, including healthcare (e.g., sick days, above-standard health examinations, health days).

  • Quality Education

    We work closely with schools and universities and organize various events, programs, and internships for pupils, students, and teachers. We hold the Summer University for students at technical universities so that they can learn more about working in a nuclear power plant. Selected students receive a scholarship and start their career at CEZ Group. Women are especially encouraged to join the summer course. We are also proud of our World of Energy education program, which has a 30-year history of supporting technical education.


We are aware of our role in society and the responsibility this role inevitably entails. Our management emphasizes ethical principles in all employee and supply chain conduct. Through sound business ethics and relations, we strive to pave the way for trust with both shareholders and stakeholders.
