Like for everyone of us, also the company has been forced to operate under the Covid-19 mark last year, meaning that it was not possible to do business as usual in many fields of activity. It has been clear that this crisis is a marathon and not a sprint since the middle of the last year. Therefore, we viewed the Platinum award in the Sustainability Index as a special challenge under these circumstances, as there was a feeling that this recognition needs to be maintained also this year (2020) despite of restricted operational opportunities.
Still, no circumstances can change our determination to work in compliance with the highest standards and quality requirements by focusing on customers, employees, environment and sustainable development. As the Covid-19 pandemic started and intensified, we were convinced we would not be waiting for the crisis to be over, instead, we were prepared to adopt new decisions on operating under the specific conditions and changing the way we operate. I think we have succeeded to a great extent!
JSC “RĪGAS SILTUMS” has been operating on the district heating market for many years. We have experienced better and worse times before, and I know that we are able to cope with this marathon by joining our forces. The team spirit is live in everybody of us, and there is well-known truth that a chain is as strong as its weakest link, therefore let's take care of each other, let's act in a responsible manner and we will succeed all together!
