Coal Phase-out

The Government of the Republic of Slovenia has adopted a National Strategy for Coal Phase-out and the Restructuring of Coal Regions in accordance with the Just Transition Principles. Below is the HSE management’s official statement.

Corporate social responsibility policy of the HSE Group

As the largest Slovenian group in the field of power production, the HSE Group takes care of its promotion in several ways. One of its strategies for appearing in the public eye are various forms of corporate social responsibility in the form of financial and material aid to various organisations, ideas, projects, events and people, who are either connected with its operations or are relevant in any other way in the sense of expanding of the good reputation of the company and the HSE Group. Furthermore, as part of the principles of corporate social responsibility and humaneness, the HSE Group helps vulnerable persons who are not able to help themselves. The enclosed document deals with basic terms and related formalities, as well as the principles and rules for the promotion of the brand of the HSE Group in the wider (national) and closer (local) community. The final objective is the recognition of the HSE Group not only as a commercially successful company, but also as a responsible stakeholder in the sense of wider social responsibility.


All companies of the HSE Group that produce electricity have the international quality certificate ISO 9001, the international environmental certificate ISO 14001 and the international occupational health and safety certificate BS OHSAS 18001. The consistent respect for the certificates ensures the safe and environmentally friendly production of electricity in all hydro power facilities. With environmental rehabilitation, upgrades and the new, modern generator 6, the Šoštanj Thermal Power Plant (TEŠ) has also achieved a more environmentally friendly level, while the nearby Premogovnik Velenje, which supplies the TEŠ, was among the first coal mines in the world with comprehensive and responsible environmental management under the requirements of this standard.

The company HSE d.o.o. has the international certificate of quality ISO 9001 and the international occupational health and safety  certificate BS OHSAS 18001 and respects and implements in its work the requirements of the international environmental standard ISO 14001.
