SPEED named Winner of the STORA HÅLLBARHETSPRISET SUSTAINABILITY award.
Speed wins the Stora Hållbarhetspriset Sustainability Award 2022. Sustainable development is based on three dimensions; environment, people, and economy. The award is given to a company that, through strategic sustainability work, excels in all three areas and shows commitment and initiative in sustainable development.
On Thursday, the winner of the Stora Hållbarhetspriset Sustainability Award was announced and Speed, one of Sweden’s largest logistics and staffing companies, is the winner. Parts of the jury visited the company to hand over a diploma, a glass statuette, and flowers as well as the prize check of SEK 100.000, to be used for the company’s continued sustainability efforts.
“It’s incredibly exciting to win a prestigious award like the Stora Hållbarhetspriset and validation that our focus on sustainability is making a difference. Sustainability permeates everything we do and it’s gratifying to see that employees in every department share this mindset. This distinction is a source of pride for Speed Group and will spur everyone to continue this important work,” says Jesper Andersson, CEO of Speed.
Speed won the prize, with the following citation: With a clear focus on the environment that is central to the customer dialogue, and with the largest rooftop photovoltaic system in the Nordics, this year’s winner is growing quickly. The 2022 Stora Hållbarhetspriset recipient has a goal of becoming carbon neutral by no later than 2025. Suppliers for this year’s prize-winner must meet requirements for more sustainable materials, energy solutions, transportation and work clothes. Through initiatives both large and small, the winner makes a difference and demonstrates that ecological, social and financial responsibility can go hand in hand. The winner of this year’s prize intends to support innovations related to the environment and contribute to a more inclusive local community where children and young people have a fair chance. Based on its long-term and goal-oriented sustainability agenda, the jury awards the Stora Hållbarhetspriset to Speed.
The Stora Hållbarhetspriset was established in 2021 by Borås Näringsliv (the Borås local business association), the University of Borås, the City of Borås and Sparbanken Sjuhärad through its owner foundation, with the aim of inspiring and encouraging sustainable development that generates growth.
