Community development

DTEK builds its relationship with local communities on the principle of mutually beneficial cooperation, involving representatives of local authorities and residents in the development of social programs and evaluation of their effectiveness. The principles of mutually beneficial cooperation are set out in the Social Partnership Declaration adopted by the Company in 2008. In accordance with the Declaration’s commitments, DTEK is willing to support the local government bodies in designing sustainable development plans for cities and towns to improve their investment attractiveness.

To ensure transparent and efficient implementation of the social partnership programs, we set up a Steering Committee to coordinate the joint activities of the parties to the Declaration. The Committee comprises the representatives of DTEK’s corporate center and its companies, and managers of local government bodies; they develop and make joint decisions with regard to the programs and projects in progress.

As part of the social partnership programs, DTEK provides financial assistance to the communities in the areas of its operation. In these efforts, the Company is guided by the following principles:

  • Funds must be used to resolve social problems and/or support vulnerable social groups, and implement socially important infrastructural projects;
  • DTEK does not sponsor political or religious projects;
  • Recipients provide reports to DTEK so that the company can ensure that the funds are spent for the intended purpose.

More details about the strategies and implementation of the projects can be found on our partner website of the Social Partnership Program.

In 2015, we developed three-year cooperation strategies with the communities in the areas of our operations for 2016-2018. In 2016, the company plans to co-finance the projects within the framework of the strategies.
