Company / Policies

At the Šoštanj Thermal Power Plant we are aware that the production of electricity and thermal energy has a great impact on the society and the environment in the following aspects :

  • employment,
  • consumption of energy products, water and other raw materials,
  • emissions of gas and dust into the atmosphere,
  • water discharges into the environment,
  • production of ash, slag and desulphurisation products,
  • various other waste and
  • noise due to the operation of machines.

Zagotavljanje zdravega okolja, varnega in zdravega dela ter varovanja informacij, je temeljni pogoj in skupen smoter vodstva ter vseh zaposlenih. Vloge, odgovornosti in pooblastila so definirane in zaposleni so z njimi seznanjeni. TEŠ si prizadeva v okviru možnosti zagotavljati takšne pogoje dela, ki zagotavljajo zaposlenim in obiskovalcem varno in zdravo delovno okolje.

Uspešno izvajanje politike zahteva sodelovanje vseh zaposlenih in sprejemanje individualne obveznosti.

In the last 20 years, we have invested considerable funds in ecological projects in order to achieve our ambitious goals in terms of reducing NOx, CO2, SO2, and dust emissions. By implementing the development plan, we will maintain electricity production, and by continuing the ecological rehabilitation in accordance with the Kyoto Agreement, we will significantly reduce emissions and maintain the water quality. We will maintain our active role in the development of the local environment by contributing donations and sponsorship funds to support various sports, culture, science, and art projects and activities.

We will continue to devote a great deal of attention to our employees. We share a considerable responsibility with them: to implement our energy projects in order to realise our expectations in the economic, environmental and social fields.

 

ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY AND STANDARDS

At Termoelektrarna Šoštanj, we pride ourselves in responsible management of natural environment and active involvement in the social environment. In addition to successful economic operation, we observe the principles of sustainable development and follow social expectations. It is therefore that, in addition to reliable production of electricity, regular monitoring of operations, and considerable investments in the social community, we actively plan our development, mainly in terms of higher efficiency of the units.

We have established an integrated management system that is composed of quality management system following the requirements of SIST ISO 9001:2015, environmental management system following the requirements of SIST EN ISO 14001:2015, and occupational safety and health management systems following the requirements of OHSAS 18001:2007. With the introduction of the integrated management system, all activities are connected to an efficient system which leads to the realisation of the Company’s vision, mission, and long-term goals. It provides the employees with safe and comfortable working conditions which are a prerequisite for creative work. By integrating individual management systems into a comprehensive integrated management system, we are introducing the philosophy of total quality management (TQM).
