The theoretical part of the thesis focuses on analysis and evaluation of utilization of the corporate social responsibility concept. It describes in detail the sense and content of CSR reports, which are released annually. The work verifies hypothesis, that in the Czech environment the strategy is being implemented in a narrower sense than in developed countries. The practical part refers about results of a few international and national studies dedicated to comparison of the concept domestically and abroad. Previous studies confirm the main hypothesis; the CSR policy is immature in Czech Republic, but is rapidly expanding. The hypothesis is confirmed also by field research, which was performed in four Czech companies that implemented the CSR policy. It was found out that the firms do not use the strategy in its entire extent and issuing reports which would meet international standards is not considered to be a priority for them. The conclusion of the thesis incorporates the assessment of current situation and suggestions for changes.

Čtrnáctý, Jaromír ; Geuss, Erik (advisor) ; Branžovský, Antonín (referee)
Energy Performance Contracting is an energy saving method, when the supplier guarantees a certain minimal level of energy savings to the customer, as well as non-rising energy costs. The method was developed at the turn of 70's and 80's in the USA and has spread to dozens of countries around the world till today, although the rate of the EPC market development differs from country to country. The method is useful mostly for heating, electricity and gas cost savings by the end-users. In the Czech Republic, the method has been used since 1993. Until now, several dozens, or even hundreds of projects have been realized, mostly for public sector customers. This paper analyzes the current state of the EPC method usage around the world as well as in the Czech Republic, the key part comprises of the EPC principles description, based on data from real EPC contracts. The work is concluded by a SWOT analysis of the method and by a discussion of the following question: "Can EPC projects blockade the overall saving potential in some cases?" The key information source for most of the work were answers to questions sent to eight Czech ESCO companies representatives, as well as the outputs from guided interviews with four of them, which were taking place between January and May 2009.
