Silvateam was named in the top 100 performers in Italy for good practice in environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG).
The competition also sought to measure improvements in the ESG rating of companies that have participated in both editions of the competition and, in addition to overall winners, named winners in each of the three categories (E, S and G). Silvateam came top for governance.
Ratings were calculated by a technical partner, specialist Switzerland-based consultancy RepRisk, and by an academic partner, the ALTIS business school of Milan’s Sacred Heart Catholic University.
Silvateam said it was honoured to have been given such high profile recognition for its work.
