With 10.8 points on a scale of 0 to 100 points, Sustainalytics has confirmed Leadec a “low risk” for 2021. This is an even better result than in the previous year, when Leadec achieved a very good 13.1 points at the first attempt. Of all the almost 15,000 companies assessed, Leadec is ranked 309th.
Top position in the industrial environment
In the industrial environment and also with a view to the competition, Leadec thus occupies a leading position worldwide. “I can proudly say that none of our direct competitors is better than us. This shows our customers and stakeholders very clearly that we are consistently pursuing our sustainability goals and constantly improving,” says Markus Glaser-Gallion, CEO of Leadec.
Improved in four categories
Sustainalytics, a Morningstar company, looks at ESG indicators from eight areas. The rating result takes into account, on the one hand, the risks to which Leadec is exposed as a service specialist for the factory and, on the other, how the company deals with them. Leadec improved particularly strongly last year in the areas of corporate governance, human resources, and data privacy and data security.
For example, certifications such as ISO 27001 and the establishment of an internal control system play an important role. The fact that Leadec regularly carries out so-called penetration tests to uncover potential vulnerabilities in the IT infrastructure was also rated positively.
A particular focus is on digitization in occupational health and safety. The 300 or so people responsible worldwide record all data in the Cority software, thereby creating transparency throughout the company. This not only enables pandemics such as Covid-19 to be better managed, but also allows risks to be identified at an early stage and measures to prevent accidents to be taken.
