This year, Rottneros Bruk has been awarded gold by the analysis company EcoVadis. This means that Rottneros Bruk's sustainability work is better than 94 percent of all companies that have been audited globally.

  • Achieving gold we see as an important milestone and a recognition of our extensive commitment to sustainability issues. I am very proud of us, the diligent work of my colleagues and the company management. In addition to EcoVadis giving our customers an objective third-party valuation, we ourselves get a clear picture of how we can become even better, says Christin Pihlgren who is energy & environment manager at Rottneros Bruk.
