MSCI, a leading international ESG rating company that analyzes nearly 3 thousand companies globally, has raised Sesa’s rating from BB to BBB, placing the company just one step away from the levels of excellence for issues of governance, training and attention to sustainability. Among the main reasons for the rating improvement is the path of alignment with UN, OECD and EU principles on sustainability issues, as well as the development and implementation of work-life balance policies and environmental goals.
This upgrade is part of a broader and more structured path of Sesa that has seen it excel at the Italian level among the most sustainable companies and engaged in paths aimed at reducing its environmental footprint.
Jacopo Laschetti, Stakeholder, IR and Corporate Sustainability Officer of Sesa Group, commented,”The rating increase provided by MSCI confirms Sesa’s positioning among the most sustainable companies in Italy and follows the trajectory already confirmed by the other most important international rating agencies such as Refinitiv, CDP and Ecovadis. We are delighted with this further confirmation and will continue to ensure an increasingly constructive dialogue with all ESG rating agencies“.
