Vattenfall once again receives top marks for its sustainability performance

Vattenfall’s sustainability performance once again receives the highest rating – platinum – in the ranking from EcoVadis, a leader in sustainability assessments. The award consolidates Vattenfall’s position as one of the most sustainability-oriented energy companies.

Every year, EcoVadis reviews the sustainability efforts of 75,000 companies. The review focuses on four sub-areas: environment, human rights and working conditions, ethics and responsible procurement. Last year’s review awarded Vattenfall the highest possible rating – platinum – for the first time – a rating that goes to only one percent of the companies audited. In the 2022 review, Vattenfall once again received the same rating as the score climbed even further, from 78 to 87.       

"To be recognized again 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," 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.
