Marie Maliskova has been appointed the head of sustainability activities at O2 Czech Republic.
According to the company, she will manage the strengthening of its social responsibility, with an emphasis on long-term sustainability or ESG strategy.
Commenting on the development, O2 CEO Jindrich Fremuth said: “At O2, we feel that sustainability is becoming a very important issue for both suppliers and our customers and customers. At the same time, we are closely monitoring developments in the financial sector and growing reporting requirements. They are gradually moving away from the world, and we want to show that this is how we see the future of business”.
At the same time, an ESG commission is being set up at O2, which will guarantee sustainability throughout the company. People from key areas will systematically address these issues. They will collect suggestions, opportunities for improvement or comments from employees within the workplace and regularly submit them for discussion. Each of the employees will be directly involved in the development of the ESG strategy and the company as a whole.
Maliskova, who has been working at O2 as a CSR and sponsorship manager since 2016, will coordinate and manage all internal and external activities of the company that will lead to sustainability and at the same time look for new, potential opportunities.
She added: “O2 will continue its mission to bring technologies that improve people’s daily lives and to grow its business in a sustainable way. We want to become synonymous with sustainable business and our goal is to be perceived by the public and our employees.
“We hope that we can serve as an example to other companies that sustainability can be fulfilled and monitored in any field of business. As a technology company, we are very close to this. In addition, in the future, the ESG and the fulfillment of this strategy will be one of the criteria in tenders and the emphasis will be placed on it by banks or business partners. This is exactly what we want to be prepared for”.
