Accountor’s long-term work towards sustainable business has been recognised with Bronze EcoVadis Medal
Accountor’s long-term work towards sustainable business has been recognised again with Bronze EcoVadis Medal. According to the evaluation, Accountor’s rating is higher than 70% of the companies rated by Ecovadis.
EcoVadis, the world’s largest provider of business sustainability ratings, has granted Accountor a Bronze medal for the second time. Accountor has, however, improved the rating significantly. In 2022 rating, Accountor scored higher than 61% of the participants while this year it performs better than 70% of the rated companies. The improvement was driven especially by actions and visible progress in the environmental area. Accountor’s strengths continue to be in business ethics, labour and human rights and now also in the environmental area.
“I am very happy about our recognition and want to thank Accountor team members for consistent work for sustainability every day! The rating is an acknowledgement for the professionals in several functions for their growing positive impact. I am especially proud of our increased dedication and effort for environmental topics. Improving sustainability is a joint learning journey with a lot of practical actions. Achieving higher rating feels rewarding and motivates us to keep up improving. Thank you for all Accountor sustainability stakeholders. You made this happen“, says Mari Vuorre, Accountor Group Chief Competence and Sustainability Officer.
