Creating an equal environment for all is an integral part of DTEK's values. On International Day of Persons with Disabilities (December 3), the company has joined The Valuable 500. This movement brings together CEOs from around the world who have committed to improve the integration of employees and clients with disabilities.
Caroline Casey, Founder of The Valuable 500, commented: “We are thrilled to welcome the newest The Valuable 500 members on board in the midst of the continuing pandemic. We believe in collaboration rather than competition and the multiplier effect of the collective impact of 500 leading CEOs and brands. I am confident that over the next decade, if the business community pulls together and stands united in ensuring disability inclusion is a central part of their leadership agenda, we can truly make a difference globally across the next decade”.
“We recognise that all people are unique and strive to create an environment in which everyone can fulfill their potential. This approach promotes the emergence of new ideas, the introduction of innovations and creative solutions. This helps DTEK company in our endeavors to ensuring societal progress and prosperity, as well as our efforts to help shape a favourable environment for people with disabilities and the elderly to thrive”, said DTEK CEO Maxim Timchenko.
2020 marks the year in which the DTEK Group has begun the implementation of a new long-term strategy, which is based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and complies with the ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) principles. The new strategy reflects the DTEK’s objective - working for the progress and prosperity of society. Considering the UN Sustainable Development Goals, DTEK intends to continue promoting disability inclusion across its business processes.
