Announced at the World Economic Forum in Davos, the Global 100 companies represent the top 1.3 percent companies in the world for sustainability performance. Over 7500 companies were analyzed to develop the ranking made by Corporate Knights.
In addition, Electrolux has today been awarded a place on the 2018 Climate Change A-List, by international non-profit CDP, for its efforts to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop the low-carbon economy.
“We take our commitment to shape living for the better seriously and are focused on our ambitious climate targets for 2025. We’re especially honored that in our 100th year the work that Electrolux does to shape lives for the better and help consumers live more sustainably is being highlighted by two prestigious organizations”, said Henrik Sundström, Vice President for Sustainability Affairs at Electrolux.
Last year, Electrolux stepped up its commitment to climate action by setting two new ambitious targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2025 in support of the Paris climate agreement. Both are approved by the Science-Based Targets initiative, a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF).
