Odfjell awarded top ratings for sustainable business practices

New ESG mileposts are reached as Odfjell lands a top 5% score in the latest EcoVadis assessment and gets ranked as number one among industry peers by Sustainalytics.


The top rating by EcoVadis comes just a few weeks after Sustainalytics ranked Odfjell as number one among industry peers in their ESG risk assessment. While EcoVadis is the world’s largest provider of business sustainability ratings with more than 75,000 rated companies, Sustainalytics provides analytical ESG research, ratings and data of more than 20,000 companies.

A great team effort

“The EcoVadis and Sustainability ratings are testaments to the significant efforts of our organization to keep improving our ESG performance. Sustainability is an integral part of our business and operations, and we are glad to share these solid assessments with our customers, partners and other stakeholders. These results inspire us to continue our work towards reaching our ambitious ESG targets.”

Øistein Jensen, Chief Sustainability Officer


The analyses are based on publicly available information and on comprehensive questionnaires and formatted reporting. Among the documentation is Odfjell’s annual report, which includes a sustainability and materiality assessment. The end assessments are made available to banks, customers and other stakeholders.
