On 16 October, DIAB has the chance to win the award for the Most Sustainable Company in 2014 at the Golden Evening Gala in Laholm, Sweden.
DIAB explains that it is one of three companies nominated in this category. In a world shared by 7.3 billion people, DIAB says sustainability is not optional --it is essential. DIAB has made sustainability one of its top business priorities. It says that its sustainability efforts are divided into four different areas: Strategy & Governance, Human & Labor Rights, Business Ethics and Environment.
According to DIAB, it is making good progress in some of these areas and a proof of that is its nomination as one of the most sustainable companies in 2014 in its headquarter municipality of Laholm, Sweden. The winner will be presented at the Golden Evening Gala in Laholm on 16 October.
The motivation for this highly honorable nomination is:
‘‘DIAB Group is the company that for almost 20 years has kept the flag flying in their environmental efforts. The owner [Ratos] has a conscious strategy to step by step and in a structured way advance its position in the environmental field. The company [DIAB] has also decided to make sustainability one of its top business priorities. As a result of this, DIAB has stopped depositing thousands of tons of waste to landfill. The waste is instead being used to recover energy, which greatly reduces the impact on the natural environment.’’
‘‘We are very proud to be nominated for this award. Sustainability has always been a key issue for us, long before the term itself became a buzzword’’, says Lennart Hagelqvist, CEO of DIAB. ‘‘This nomination conveys that DIAB truly cares about the development of the society, human resources and the environment and that we take responsibility for the world we live in.’’
