Position as industry leader in Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) strengthened
Glattpark (Opfikon), 18 February 2022 – MSCI ESG Research has raised Implenia’s ESG rating for 2021 from AA to AAA. This makes Implenia the first company in the MSCI Construction & Engineering index to receive the highest possible rating, reinforcing its position as industry leader for sustainability. MSCI ESG Research provides in-depth research, ratings and analysis of the ESG-related business practices of thousands of companies worldwide.
Sustainability is an integral component of Implenia’s values and business. In addition to MSCI ESG Research, a number of other external agencies rewarded Implenia’s long-term commitment with positive ratings in 2021. Ecovadis, for example, awarded the Group silver status, while Sustainalytics rated Implenia as industry leader for 2020 with a high score of 84 points.
André Wyss, CEO, is pleased about the rating: “For us, the AAA rating from MSCI ESG is further confirmation that sustainability, one of our five corporate values, is something we successfully put into practice every day for the benefit of our customers. In Switzerland and Germany, we not only develop and build sustainable projects, like the 2000 Watt-certified “Lokstadt” in Winterthur, but also help our customers plan and execute everything relating to sustainable real estate and infrastructure. The way we build is important to us, as is the fact that we always do this sustainably for Implenia and its employees.”
