Dace Helmane, Chief Executive Officer and Responsible Business Activist of InCSR: “Companies that meet at least 80% of the criteria are in the Gold category of the Sustainability index. They demonstrate openness and transparency by purposefully planning and implementing responsible attitudes not only towards their employees and customers, but also environmental sustainability. Every responsible company is aware that sustainability requires constant reviewing and improvement of existing activities, therefore it is important not to stop at what has been achieved and to set new and challenging goals.”
Sustainability index is a strategic management tool based on an internationally recognized methodology. It helps Latvian companies to determine the sustainability of their operations and the level of corporate responsibility. At the same time, it provides the public, state and non-governmental organizations with objective criteria to praise and support companies that help strengthen the Latvian economy in the long run. The participants of the Sustainability index represent courage, openness and commitment to improve their performance. Such organizations can not only influence the development of their industry, but also contribute to the sustainability of the country as a whole.
