N/A

The company follows 14 out of 17 of the united nations’ sustainable development goals, while also achieving a long list of sustainable awards. They lack certifications and clear Key Performance Indicators on targets and achievements towards them. We expect them to provide more numbers to back up their claim, or their rating will be lowered. For now, they are given the rating B.
