FAR, Sweden’s accountants association, has appointed Vattenfall's annual and sustainability report to Sweden's best in competition with around 90 other companies.

In its motivation, the jury says that Vattenfall’s report is transparent and balanced and that it succeeds in communicating the company’s vision and integration of sustainability issues into the business, while analyzing future opportunities and challenges in the business.

The award was received by Vattenfall's sustainability manager Annika Ramsköld and project manager Jesse Steele at a ceremony in Stockholm on 14 June.

"It’s an honour and a joy to get recognition for all the work we have done. Vattenfall is in the midst of a transformation towards making it possible to live fossil-free within one generation, both for us as a company and for society as a whole. The sustainability report is of course an important way for us to openly show the world what we do and where we are on this journey, says Annika Ramsköld.

Jesse Steele says:

"This award is great recognition of the work of the many people across the BAs and Staff Functions who contributed to the report. It's also a testament to the fact sustainability is increasingly well-integrated throughout the company, and that our employees recognize this and have reflected it in their contributions to the report."

FAR has been distributing the prize since 2003. The purpose has always been to reward and praise companies that show development of their sustainability work in an exemplary manner. The jury consists of representatives of member companies such as PwC, Grant Thornton and KPMG.
