Environmental management

A responsible attitude to the environment is one of EVN Bulgaria’s guiding principles. In order to ensure its practical implementation at all levels of EVN, in 2013 we set up an Environmental Management System in line with ISO 14001. The principals on which the system is built are:

  • strict compliance with the applicable regulatory requirements
  • consistent implementation of policies and good practice
  • continuous control of processes to avoid pollution risks

Every year we have successfully passed the supervisory audits which confirm our certification.

Waste management

Proper waste management not only saves natural resources, but also prevents contaminating the environment with hazardous substances.
 
At EVN Bulgaria group, we operate a successful system for collecting and separating the waste produced by grid maintenance activities. This ensures environmentally sound waste management. All waste is handed over to specialist companies for subsequent reuse or disposal.
When treating waste, we comply with the following European Union policies:

  • Prevention of waste formation
  • Recycling
  • Reuse
  • Disposal

In 2020, EVN handed over for recycling:

  • 23 tonnes of paper
  • 857 tonnes of scrap metal
  • 87 tonnes of used transformer oil

Protecting the air

The problem of air purity is one of the most pressing, not only in Bulgaria, but also worldwide. Measures need to be taken both to reduce harmful CO2 emissions and to tackle the fine dust particles that most significantly affect our health. We believe that solving these problems is the personal responsibility of each of us.
 
In our main business, we at EVN Bulgaria are striving to reduce CO2 emissions by investing in modern, energy-efficient technologies in order to further reduce the technological costs of the electricity grid.
 
We managed to reduce the technological costs from 20% at the time of privatisation in 2005 to below 8% by the end of 2019. This means that 930,000 MWh of electricity and 526,000 tonnes of harmful CO2 emissions have been saved.
