The 100 most influential opinion leaders within sustainability in Sweden have ranked Fortum as number 1 on sustainability in the Sustainability Engagement Mapping 2015 that was published yesterday. The study was conducted by analyst companies Brands Insight and Whisper Group.
This was the first Sustainability Engagement Mapping done, identifying and ranking the most important digital influencers within sustainability. These 100 influencers are in turn asked to list and rank what companies they consider best at sustainability. These brand assessments are also compared to what regular consumers think.
Top 5 companies this year were: Fortum, Löfbergs Lila, IKEA, H&M, and E.ON.
"This result is extremely satisfying: We have worked relentlessly on sustainability of our business and now the most important and engaged opinion makers recognize this work. Sustainability is an integral part of Fortum’s strategy, which means there is a tight link between business operations and corporate responsibility," says Fredrik Karlsson, VP Corporate Communications Sweden.
