Already 5 years in a row PALFINGER won the first place of the desirable ASRA (Austrian Sustainability Reporting Award) in the category of “Integrated Annual and Sustainability Report”. This confirms our efforts in sustainability reporting.
5 years of Integrated Annual Reports
Daniela Werdecker-Davies (Head of Sustainability Management) and Christian Koppensteiner (Sustainability Management & Controlling) were delighted to receive the ASRA award for the fifth time.
“We are very proud to have won first place in the ASRA Awards for our Integrated Annual Reports for the fifth time. This shows us that we combine and integrate non-financial issues well in our financial reporting”, comments Daniela Werdecker-Davies (Head of Sustainability Management).
For 5 years, PALFINGER has been reporting in the form of an Integrated Annual Report. This not only presents the economic performance of the reporting year, but also the ecological and social responsibility. A focus is placed on the four sustainability fields of PALFINGER: Responsible employer, Eco-efficiency in production, Sustainable products and Fair business.
For the first time, the Integrated Annual Report for the 2017 fiscal year is also available in digital form: https://i-report.palfinger.ag/en/index.php.
