Electrolux recognized in three prestigious sustainability rankings

Electrolux has this year been included in the Global 100 ranking of the world’s most sustainable companies, returning to the list for the first time since 2005. The company was also for the second year running named Sector Leader in the RobecoSAM 2013 global sustainability rating, and ranked as one of the world’s leading consumer goods companies in terms of addressing climate change.

“Sustainability is an integral part of everything we do at Electrolux, from improving the eco-efficiency of our appliances to reducing the carbon footprint of our manufacturing facilities. These recognitions by leading ratings institutes are clear evidence that Electrolux is a good choice for consumers and investors alike,” said Henrik Sundström, Vice President Group Sustainability Affairs at Electrolux.

The Global 100 list of the most sustainable companies in the world was presented on January 23 at the World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. The ranking has been published by the Canadian research firm Corporate Knights since 2005. It is based on 12 key indicators, including energy use and gender diversity in the management team.

Electrolux shared the third best score among 145 consumer brands. The companies were assessed on a 100-point scale based on 22 criteria. These criteria measured efforts to assess the companies’ climate footprint, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, support progress on climate legislation, and communicate their efforts clearly and comprehensively to consumers.
