ABSTRACT

Public Enterprise Elektroprivreda Srbije (EPS - Electric Power Industry of Serbia), the
dominant electricity producer in Serbia, is a 100% state-owned public company. The
Kolubara Mining Basin (MB Kolubara) with its open cast mines is one of 11 subsidiaries of EPS.
In accordance with the Serbian Energy Strategy by 2015, one of the EPS priorities is a modernization and improvement of the efficiency of EPS’ coal mining operations at the Kolubara basin and significantly improvement the quality and uniformity of the lignite it delivers to EPS’ power stations. Further to that, EPS and MB Kolubara develop new
projects. All of those projects might have some social and nvironmental influence on the society.
As a social responsible companies, recognised the communications with the stakeholders as a very important issue, EPS and MB Kolubara prepared the Stakeholder Engagement Plan (SEP). This SEP has been designed to guide current and future stakeholder engagement activities of EPS and RB Kolubara in relation to the mention
projects. Taking into consideration specifics of the above mention projects, this paper dealing with the detail explanation of the proposed SEP. Although EPS has no operational responsibilities for stakeholder engagement and resettlement activities (these are the
responsibility of MB Kolubara), it liaises with the relevant ministries and has a strategic oversight role. MB Kolubara is responsible for engagement and implementing resettlement at the local level, in cooperation with the municipal authorities and it has a direct relationship with the relevant Ministries. Throughout this SEP, specific reference is therefore made to both EPS and RB Kolubara depending on the competence.
