Support to the energy sector, local communities and the state in the area of environmental protection

Activities

The Environmental Department (ED) deals with environment protection in connection to the energy sector, local communities and the state. The development and research activities of the department focus on the protection, preservation and enrichment of the natural capital, on economic resource management and low-carbon economy, as well as on protection against environmental pressures and risks for the health and well-being of people.

ED
