ЕVN was awarded the "Trigos" prize for modernization of their energy effectiveness in Plovdiv city

1. June 2010

The prize is awarded to Austrian companies for corporate social responsibility.

The official awarding of “Trigos” Prize for Corporate Social Responsibility was held on 1 June 2010 in Vienna. This prize is awarded for projects of Austrian companies which are a model for having realized their public responsibility and which have successfully incorporated measures for its recognition in their corporate strategy.

The "Trigos" prize is awarded for responsibility in the following categories: "Work Place", "Market", "Company" and "Ecology", and the special prize "Measures against poverty and for the socially disadvantaged".

EVN applied in the category “Companies” with the project for renewal of the energy infrastructure in Stolipinovo residential area in Plovdiv city, as well as for the special prize which is awarded for fighting poverty and was nominated in both categories. A total of 166 companies applied, of which 29 were nominated. EVN was honored the prize in the category "Company" for this project.

EVN’s aim was to overcome the historical legacy existing in this residential area by replacing and repairing the technical infrastructure. Thanks to the investments made by EVN Bulgaria it became possible for the existing power supply regime in this residential area to die out and the clients were provided 24-hour electricity supply. The total of investments of EVN Bulgaria in this project in Stolipinovo exceeded 5 million BGN.

The measures, that were taken, significantly improved the quality of the service provided at the same time increased the recovery in the area: from about 2% before the investments of the company to over 85% at present.

Up to now the company has realized 20 similar projects in different places in the southeast Bulgaria.
