Nokian Tires is again selected as one of the most sustainable companies in the world. The company received the Silver Class distinction in the RobecoSAM Sustainability Yearbook 2019, which was published today. RobecoSAM is an expert on sustainability whose annual assessment is considered to be a particularly reliable and comprehensive report of how sustainability is implemented in companies around the world.
“We are glad to see our efforts in different areas of sustainability to bear fruit. We are committed to long-term goals and the recognition encourage us to keep up the good work”, says Teppo Huovila, Vice President, Quality & Sustainability at Nokian Tires.
Nokian Tires was one of two Finnish companies to make it to the Silver Class. All in all there were five Finnish companies in Gold, Silver and Bronze Classes. Last year Nokian Tires received the Bronze Class distinction.
RobecoSAM’s annual Corporate Sustainability Assessment focuses on financially material factors that impact a company’s value drivers. Factors such as a company’s ability to innovate, attract and retain talent or enhance its operational eco-efficiency matter to investors because they impact a company’s competitive position and long-term financial performance. For the Sustainability Yearbook 2019 RobecoSAM evaluated more than 2,600 publicly traded companies.
