Neste Latvija has received a gold category prize for sustainable and responsible business practice and is recognized as one of the twelve most sustainable Latvian companies. This year 72 companies operating in Latvia participated in the assessment and submitted data about sustainable and socially responsible operating policies. In addition, Neste Latvija received the Family Friendly Enterprise award for third year in a row.
"I am very pleased that the company's contribution is valued and Neste Latvija has been ranked in the gold category repeatedly”, Arttu Airiainen, Neste Latvija General Manager said.
“We have received the Family Friendly Enterprise from the Ministry of Welfare for three consecutive years now. We are proud of the fact that we are able to provide our employees and their families a friendly environment, including both work and free time perspectives."
Sustainability Index is an initiative providing Latvian businesses an opportunity to objectively assess their sustainability level as per internationally accepted criteria. The Index evaluates business operations in five areas: business strategy, operating environment, market relations, the impact on the environment and society.
The Family Friendly Enterprise status is granted to firms which implement family friendly policies, such as providing services in a family accessible environment.
