Vattenfall once again number one in biodiversity ranking

Vattenfall has once again taken first place in Ecogain’s biodiversity index.  Some of the largest companies across Europe have been assessed, with  Ecogain evaluating biodiversity performance in their business operations.

Ecogain is a Swedish environmental consulting company, specialized in biodiversity and has been conducting rankings since 2020. In this year’s ranking, Ecogain has expanded their evaluation – from companies in the Nordics and Baltics – to companies all over Europe. And like last year, Vattenfall takes the first place in the ranking for 2022.

– At Vattenfall, we have an ambitious net positive approach for biodiversity and we work hard to deliver on it through scientific research programs, concrete biodiversity initiatives at our sites and through activities to enable measuring of biodiversity impacts and gains. I am very happy that we are so transparent with these efforts to be recognized as a leader in the Ecogain Biodiversity Index, says Helle Herk-Hansen, Vice President of Environment at Vattenfall.

Biodiversity is of great importance to Vattenfall’s business operations and also a way to be competitive. Vattenfall is recognized for ambitious target setting, biodiversity work across the whole value chain and for reporting on its engagement in different projects to reduce negative impact on biodiversity.
