Ecovadis sustainability rating 2023

We have received our first Ecovadis assessment

Our sustainability journey is moving fast forward and the Lesjöfors Group is taking action in many areas. One of them is joining the EcoVadis platform, where we achieved a bronze medal in our first assessment.

EcoVadis is a provider of business sustainability ratings, including more than 75,000 companies in its assessment. The Ecovadis rating covers a wide range of ESG topics, including environment, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. Their methodology is based on leading standards such as ISO 26000 and Global Reporting Initiative. It helps companies to manage ESG risk and compliance, meet corporate sustainability goals, and drive impact at scale by guiding the sustainability performance improvement of companies and their value chains.

A road map for further improvements

Lesjöfors signed up to EcoVadis in the beginning of 2023 and recently got the results from the first assessment. An overall score of 52 gives us a good starting point. Our best performance was in the Environment area, where we achieved 70 points, which means a result among the top 11 per cent of all compared companies.

Anna Haesert, Head of Sustainability, comments on the bronze medal:

“Improving our sustainability work is a long process that covers the whole value chain and we are well aware of that our journey has just begun. Nevertheless, we are happy to see that our targeted and committed work puts us among the companies on the better half of the scorecards. The Ecovadis assessment result is a good tool to identify areas where need to put extra actions in.”
