Support for projects in the Ústí Region and co-operation with the municipalities of the region is carried out from multiple angles. SD annually contributes to the Ústi Region, an amount determined by a long-term agreement. We uphold the law imposing royalties/mineral extraction fees, a significant portion of which goes to the local municipalities in which the land is mined . We pay taxes and statutory deductions which, being regularly awarded to the Ministry of Finance form one of the most important contributions to the state budget. Over and above these legal and contractual obligations, communities in the immediate vicinity of the mine are provided with donations in accordance with a resolution passed at the company’s Annual General Meeting, complying with the government’s resolution on donorship and meeting the requirements of the law on income tax.

Sponsorship and advertising partnerships serve as further tools for the promotion of socially beneficial activities. These resources are directed at specific chosen sporting clubs and cultural or societal associations in support of various events in municipalities and towns.

We are aware of the positive and negative impacts of our activities on the lives of people in the Ústí region, the Czech Republic as a whole, but also the wider region as part of our membership of the EU.
