Once again BillerudKorsnäs receives top marks for sustainability. This time it is EcoVadis who has given BillerudKorsnäs a “Gold” rating.

In order to comply to the wishes of large, important customers BillerudKorsnäs has reported sustainability performance to the international evaluation system - EcoVadis. They has now found that BillerudKorsnäs is in the top group of 150 companies in our industry and gives us the score Gold. EcoVadis ask many and very detailed questions about the environment, working conditions, business liability and suppliers.


When it comes to working conditions we are considered at the very top of the industry, but also in terms of business liability and procurement of suppliers. The latter is particularly satisfying as Purchasing recently introduced a new system for supplier evaluation. EcoVadis have a very positive view on that. As areas for improvement statistics for number of supplier evaluations, amount of time in training per employee and sick leave due to work accidents are mentioned.
 
EcoVadis supports approximately 100 multinational companies in their evaluation of suppliers in some 90 countries, like for example BillerudKorsnäs, and is not an analyst for investors.
