Elkem has received an "A+" score in Position Green's analysis of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) reporting for the 100 largest companies on the Oslo Stock Exchange, which is presented today.
The ESG100 analysis examines the degree to which the corporate ESG reporting of the 100 largest listed companies in Sweden, Denmark and Norway (300 companies in total) provides valuable information for decision makers of both the financial and non-financial kind. The "A+" score is only given to the top 5 per cent of companies in the analysis.
"Continuous improvement on ESG is an integrated part of Elkem’s business strategy. We aim to be part of the solution to combat climate change – and to be one of the winners in the green transition. To achieve this, setting clear goals for ESG improvement, tracking progress and communicating transparently is important. High-quality ESG data is also fast becoming a driving factor in decisions made by investors and a wide range of stakeholders. We are delighted to receive this score on our ESG reporting, and take it as inspiration to improve further," says Elkem’s CEO, Helge Aasen.
This year’s ESG100 report marks the sixth edition and presents an analysis and review of how prepared the 300 participating companies are for the introduction of the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS).
The ESG100 analysis is produced by ESG software and sustainability advisory firm Position Green.
