SEB wins gold medal in Latvia’s Sustainability Index

SEB reached an index value of 84.55 in the survey, putting it in the gold category together with six more companies. Aldaris, a brewery owned by Denmark’s Carlsberg, was the only company to claim a platinum medal. 29 companies received silver medals and 9 bronze medals. 75 companies in total participated in the Sustainability Index survey.

The Sustainability Index rate companies performance in 5 categories – profile and strategy, market relations, environment, society and working environment. Each of the participants had to answer 106 questions, and each answer had to be proven – either by picture or link if possible.

Separately, Latvia’s Ministry of Welfare for the second year in a row extended SEB a family friendly company award. This award counted towards the score in the Sustainability Index. In addition to SEB, another 10 companies received the award this year.
