OKK Koksovny, a. s., places extraordinary emphasis on minimising negative environmental impacts of its operations. This follows from the fact that the company operates in a sphere of business that is perceived rather negatively by the public where environmental impacts are concerned. The company stands at a focal point of environmental awareness also due to the fact that it is based in the Ostrava area. This is a location that, given its heavy industry, in the past acquired a reputation for being one of the worst environmentally hit parts of the country.
The company also considers it essential to openly inform the public of its activities related to environmental protection. OKK regularly publishes individual indicators of the improving environmental parameters of its technology in its annual reports. The company is also subject to the monitoring of external audits and supervisory authorities, including various administrative bodies (Czech Environmental Inspectorate, Moravian-Silesian Regional Authority, Regional Public Hygiene Station), as well as the public.
The positive approach of OKK to environmental protection is a fundamental prerequisite for winning the public's trust. The company management will continue with its systematic approach to the continuous improvement of its environmental profile in the future.
Following extensive investment, all the environmental indicators of the operations of OKK Koksovny, a. s., are in line with the European standard.
