IFCO, the top provider of Reusable Packaging Containers (RPCs) for fresh grocery products, has received recognition from Sustainalytics, a renowned ESG Risk Rating Agency, as an ESG Regional Top-Rated company.

IFCO's distinction from Sustainalytics underscores the robustness of its Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiatives and places it as a top performer in its region. By examining over 15,000 companies across 42 industries, Sustainalytics only awards those that significantly outshine others in terms of sustainable practices in their respective regions.

Michael Pooley, Chief Executive Officer of IFCO Systems, said: "Being recognised as an ESG Top-Rated company in Europe by Sustainalytics is a testament to how seriously we take our ESG program here at IFCO."

Sustainalytics' ESG Risk Ratings are an important tool for companies and investors to understand a company's ESG performance. Sustainalytics gives a complete picture of a company's ESG practices by measuring how exposed it is to important ESG risks in its industry and how well those risks are managed.

Sustainalytics is one of the top providers of ESG data and insights because it uses a sophisticated method and works with a large number of companies and financial intermediaries. The information they provide helps companies and investors make informed decisions about the sustainability of companies and their business practices.

IFCO's low-risk ESG rating from Sustainalytics is a great accomplishment. Sustainalytics gave IFCO a score of 11.2 and put it in the top 16% of all companies worldwide. This shows how strong its ESG strategy is and how committed it is to responsibly doing business. This shows how much IFCO cares about sustainability and how hard it is working to run its business in a way that is good for the environment and people. The low-risk rating shows that these values are part of its business model, which is to reduce, reuse, and recycle, as described in the company's most recent ESG report. This can help attract customers and investors looking for companies that prioritise sustainability and social responsibility.

The company's 11.2 rating from Sustainalytics is a remarkable achievement, placing it in the top three companies evaluated globally in its subindustry. This ranking confirms that IFCO's overall management of material ESG issues is robust and presents low exposure and risk compared to other similar companies.

Additionally, IFCO's "negligible risk" rating in seven out of eight categories further solidifies its reputation as a trustworthy partner for those who prioritise sustainability. This high ranking is a testament to IFCO's commitment to implementing responsible and sustainable business practices and demonstrates the success of its ESG efforts. It can help enhance the company's reputation, attract customers and investors, and establish it as a leader in its industry.
