SIG recognized for demonstrating strong sustainable business practices
SIG has once again been included in the international S&P Global Sustainability Yearbook. Each year, based on its Corporate Sustainability Assessment, S&P Global recognizes the world’s leading companies that have demonstrated strong sustainable business practices. Only around the top 15% of each industry assessed are included in the Sustainability Yearbook.
The S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) is an annual evaluation of a company’s sustainability practices. It covers more than 9,400 companies from around the world, focusing on sustainability criteria that are both industry-specific and financially material, and it has been doing so since 1999. Each year S&P Global publishes its international Sustainability Yearbook, based on information collected through the CSA.
In this year’s assessment, 759 companies from 62 industries globally were selected for inclusion in the Sustainability Yearbook. SIG has been recognized for its comprehensive sustainability roadmap on the company’s journey to create packaging for better – giving more to people and the planet than it takes out. Being recognized again for strong sustainable business practices in this external assessment, provides investors, customers, and other stakeholders with independent evaluation that SIG is a responsible business.
Dr Christian Bauer, Head of Environmental Sustainability at SIG: “It is a great honor for the entire team at SIG to have our sustainability practices and performance perceived and evaluated in such a positive way. Our commitment to sustainability and transparent communication of our progress has helped to set us apart in our industry. Being featured in the latest S&P Global Sustainability Yearbook, and receiving such recognition from S&P Global, is testament to our ongoing sustainability journey and dedicated commitment to sustainability across our supply chain and beyond. Sustainability is integral to our business and guides us on our journey to create packaging for better.”
This latest sustainability accolade adds to SIG’s international recognition as a leading company in sustainability and ESG practices. SIG also has an AA ESG rating by MSCI, a 13.9 (low risk) score by Sustainalytics, Platinum CSR rating by EcoVadis, and is included in the FTSE4Good Index.
