The Holmen Iggesund mill, Iggesunds Bruk, has been awarded the EcoVadis Leadership Award for 2021 in recognition of its sustainability performance in 2020.

The Iggesund Mill is recognised as a global leader in sustainability after reaching 77 points out of 100 available in the EcoVadis scoring system. That result gave the mill platinum level as the top 1% of all companies assessed by Ecovadis at the time of completion. When summarising the total results of the 2020 assessments, Ecovadis found that the Iggesund mill came out top of its class. The 2020 score earned Iggesund the number one position as the company reported the highest score in its macro-sector (manufacturing light). In relation to this, Ecovadis is giving the Holmen Iggesund mill the Sustainability Leadership Award, an award that work as a recognition for companies leading the charge in sustainability performance and innovation.

Head of sustainability Johan Granås commented, ‘I proudly accept this award on behalf of the Holmen Iggesund sustainability team that has done a great job in translating all the good things we are doing into the Ecovadis evaluation. Sustainability is daily teamwork trying to improve step by step, and by working together with our customers and towards a common goal in producing the most sustainable paperboard in the world. The whole mill organisation has proved that we can move mountains together.’

CEO Johan Nellbeck added, ‘Sustainability is at the core of our business and getting this recognition from Ecovadis means a lot. It is evident that we are on a good path and that we have the sustainability market leadership position that we always reach for. Our sustainability work, formed by our entire organisation and conducted together with our many customers, is an important key to continue to provide the market with a truly sustainable material for premium packaging.’
