Vattenfall receives top marks for its sustainability performance for the third time

For the third time in a row,  Vattenfall’s sustainability performance  receives the highest rating – platinum – from EcoVadis, a leader in sustainability assessments.  With a score of 85  out of a 100, Vattenfall remains in the top 1% of all companies assessed by EcoVadis in the electricity, gas & steam category.


With over 100.000 companies reviewed, EcoVadis is one of the world's most trusted business sustainability rating agencies. The review focuses on four areas: environment, labor & human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement.

"To be recognised for a third time by EcoVadis as an industry leader is very gratifying and a testament to our commitment throughout the value chain. It is the result of hard work and shows that Vattenfall’s employees understand how important sustainability is for the business. I especially want to highlight that we, for the second time, received full points for Environment, which is impressive as the bar was raised with additional focus on circularity ," says Annika Ramsköld, Head of Sustainability at Vattenfall.

Sustainability is a cornerstone of Vattenfall’s work to enable fossil-free living within one generation. The sustainability factors are also fully integrated into Vattenfall’s operations and strategy, a strategy that reflects the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Vattenfall’s responsibility and commitment extends beyond its own operations to encompass the entire value chain, from suppliers and subcontractors to customers.
