Vrabcová, Zuzana ; Brůhová-Foltýnová, Hana (advisor) ; Plíšková, Radomíra (referee)
This diploma thesis deals, in the theoretical part, with the application of social assessment methods on the public projects decision making - particularly the multicriterial analysis. In the empirical part, it deals especially with the effects of capacity traffic communications impacts on environment. The multicriterial analysis is applied on the assessment of two motorway R35 options in the corridor between Turnov and Úlibice and discusses the results of the MCA comparing them with the official supplement document "Doplnění dokumentace Posouzení vlivů konceptu Územního plánu velkého územního celku Libereckého kraje na životní prostředí o porovnání koridorů silnice R35 v úseku Úlibice - Turnov dle zákona č. 244/1992 Sb.

Finally, the main factors affecting the MCA results in the sensitivity analysis are discussed.
Barriers of Development of Biomass Growing for Energy Purposes in the Czech Republic
Česenková, Lenka ; Brůhová-Foltýnová, Hana (advisor) ; Rynda, Ivan (referee)
The diploma thesis "Barriers of development of biomass growing for energy purposes in the Czech Republic" deals with an actual topic - renewable energy sources in the context of presently often discussed problem of climate change. The most perspective renewable energy source in the Czech Republic is biomass. It can be obtained from residues from agriculture, forestry and food processing industry (residual biomass) or it can be grown on purpose. Residual biomass cannot cover the current and future needs and fulfil the target of 8 % share of electricity production from renewables on gross consumption by 2010 set in the EU Accession treaty. Therefore it is necessary to support the development of biomass growing for energy purposes that has a significantly higher potential and is on the threshold of its development. The thesis analyses conditions of this development in the Czech Republic on the background of international context and aims for identifying its barriers.

Valeška, Jan ; Brůhová-Foltýnová, Hana (advisor) ; Rynda, Ivan (referee)
Proceeding from a sociological and socially ecological perspective, this diploma thesis investigates the impacts of individual passenger car transport on human health, the quality of life, and the society as a whole. The gist of the thesis is an analysis of an instrument designed to reduce individual passenger car transport and based on non-infrastructural "soft" measures, known in foreign theoretical and practical literature as mobility management. The second focus of the thesis is placed on what are called travel/mobility plans of small and medium-sized business companies. Under scrutiny is the possibility of applying such travel plans in Prague, being analyzed on the example of a Prague-based business company and compared with foreign experience.
New Approaches to Entrepreneurship Applied Through a Business Plan
Caspe Pikhartová, Dagmar ; Hartman, Ladislav (advisor) ; Brůhová Foltýnová, Hana (referee)
This master's thesis deals with the potential for a car-sharing service in Prague. The service allows renting cars for a specified number of hours. Car-sharing is a commonly offered service in cities of the developed world. The theoretical section of the thesis introduces car-sharing and the current level of its adoption. Next, two conceptual bases for the development of the business plan are presented. The first is the macroeconomic theory of natural capitalism. At the theory's core is the recognition of the importance of natural capital. An improvement in protection of natural capital can be achieved by raising the consumption of services, instead of material products. In the case of car-sharing, the consumer only pays for the actual use of car, not for the ownership. The second concept is social entrepreneurship, which is an inspiring alternative to managing a business entity. Its goal is not only financial gain, but also positive social impact. The impact in case of car-sharing is in lowering the number of vehicles on the road and improvement of quality of life in cities. The business plan includes two financial alternatives. The thesis concludes that running a car-sharing organization in Prague is conceivable, but requires support from the municipality. Car-sharing cannot be expected to generate quick profit, but rather the profit model builds slowly. The final part of the thesis presents balanced scorecard developed for the first year of operation with the goal of achieving the optimistic alternative modeled in the business plan. The key to success in the first year is gaining and retaining customers.
