In the environmental sector, it measures the amount of CO2 emissions its operations produce and has a strategy for how and by how much emissions can be reduced over time. It monitors the energy consumed and is switching to renewable resources. Together with employees, MEGA also supports activities that have a positive impact at the company's location.

ESG Rating is the first independent survey assessing the sustainability and ethical practices of individual companies in the Czech Republic. It was created in cooperation with the Association of Social Responsibility and the CEMS study program at the Faculty of Business Administration of the Prague University of Economics and Business. The rating thoroughly examines and evaluates Czech companies according to their strategies and impact in the areas of environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and corporate governance (ESG stands for environmental, social, and governance).
„The ESG Rating allows us to recognize companies with social responsibility as one of their core business missions. It is important to support and recognize those who are committed to ethical, responsible, and sustainable business," says Hana Wasserburger, Director of Consulting at Visa, the general partner of this year's ranking, on the mission of the ESG Rating.
