Elanders AB has received the award "The Best Environmental Report of the Year" Elanders AB, in stiff competition with 45 other companies, has received the prestigious national award "The Best Environmental Report of the Year" for its latest Environmental Report. The prize was presented last night by the Minister of Environment, Kjell Larsson, at The Swedish Fair in Gothenburg. The prize, given for the fifth time, is awarded by The Institute of Business Economics together with the magazine Affärsvärlden (The World of Business). The award is given to the company which, according to the jury, has the best report on how the company's financial position and profit is affected by environmental factors and which has the best account of the company's environmental situation and work on adaptation. In its motivation for choosing Elanders, the jury cites the company's sequential and clear account of its environmental work, including everything from environmental objectives to its environmental impact to legal requirements, disputes and incidents. Naturally we are very proud to receive this award after having worked so hard to give a good account of our ambitious environmental work. This is a confirmation that our report on environmental issues is top class. Our hope is that attention will now be paid to our very positive environmental results, which have also had positive economic effects.
