Sustainable development

Sustainable development is an important part of our strategy. We pay close attention to the improvement of safety, efficiency and environmental friendliness of our operation, and to the professional development of our employees.

We are implementing a number of community programs in Zaporizhzhya Region where our Botievska Wind Farm is situated.

Social Partnership

Within the social partnership program in 2012-2016 we have implemented 27 projects and invested UAH 7.5 million in Botievo and Primorsky Posad development.

DTEK Renewables provided support and funding for renovating 12 social infrastructure facilities, developing design and general layout of Botievo, building a recreational area, sports- and playgrounds, construction of water towers and maintenance of water supply network, purchase of two school buses.

Occupational safety

We have introduced the complete complex of measures ensuring safe labour conditions for our employees.

All production personnel of the company receives occupational health and industrial safety training regularly, they also partake in fire-fighting training.

Over the past five years we have able to ensure injury free operation of the Botievo Wind Farm.

Our production workflow is certified according to OHSAS 18001:2007 “Occupational health and safety management systems”.

Environmental protection activities

We strictly observe Ukrainian environmental legislation requirements. Our environmental management system is certified according to ISO 14001:2004. Every year we initiate an environmental impact study of our operations, which includes a monitoring of populations of birds and bats.

Our annual supply of electricity from wind replaces the need for burning 300,000 tonnes of coal or 153 million cubic meters of gas, and therefore, allows to reduce CO2 emissions by 600,000-700,000 tonnes per year.
