Electrolux named Industry Leader in RobecoSAM annual rating
Electrolux has, for the third consecutive year, been ranked as Industry Leader Household Durables in RobecoSAM's Sustainability Yearbook, an annual rating of companies' sustainability performance.
The yearbook looks back at companies' sustainability performance in 2013 and ranks them as Gold, Silver or Bronze. The top performing company from each of 59 industries is named RobecoSAM Industry Leader. Electrolux received the highest rating of the 10 companies assessed within the Household Durables industry and consequently also the Gold Class award.
"To reach our vision of being the best appliance company in the world, we also need to be leading in sustainability," saysc Henrik Sundström, Vice President Group Sustainability Affairs at Electrolux. "We are proud to be rated as the industry leader in the Sustainability Yearbook, as more companies have been assessed this year and the requirements for inclusion are becoming more stringent continuously."
RobecoSAM said in the yearbook it had measured companies based on their sustainability performance in three dimensions: economic, environmental and social.
"Innovation, quality, and branding are key differentiating factors for companies in this industry," it said. "In addition, leading companies actively manage safety and environmental issues throughout the product lifecycle."
