Bio-Venta participated in the assessment of the sustainability index for the first time, "We realized that we want to get an independent expert evaluation of our activities, activities and systems previously introduced into the company", said the Chairman of the Board of Bio-Venta, Egils Staris.

 

The Sustainability Index is a strategic management tool based on the experience of the most influential global indices, Dow Jones Sustainability Index and Business in the Community CR Index, and their internationally recognised methodology that helps Latvian companies to evaluate their sustainability performance and corporate responsibility level in five categories: strategy, work environment, market relations, the environment and society or the local community. The partners within the initiative are the Institute of Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility Institute, the Employers’ Confederation of Latvia and the Free Trade Union Confederation of Latvia.

 

Chairman of the Board Egils Staris: This is an acknowledgement of our teamwork. I am glad that we applied for the Sustainability Index and I am grateful for the award we received. The wish of every entrepreneur is to improve best practice and the activities undertaken to promote the development of the company. We are determined to work on improvements so that in 2018 we can compete with companies in the gold and platinum categories.

 

Bio-Venta expresses their gratitude to the Institute for Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility and the expert jury team for their SILVER category evaluation, and their thorough evaluation of the sustainability and corporate responsibility practices of the company.
