Achieving ambitious goals
With the new and higher rating, BOAL Group claims the 29th position globally out of nearly 16,000 organizations, making it the top-scoring company among all Dutch enterprises. This excellent second ESG Risk Rating, awarded by Morningstar Sustainalytics, demonstrates that BOAL has succeeded in defining an outstanding and clear ESG strategy, with goals that are both challenging and realistic to implement. The solid framework ensures the achievement of ambitious targets and continuous improvement of BOAL's ESG performance.

Adri Pols, CEO of BOAL Group, is delighted with the higher rating: "Clearly, I am extremely proud that we have managed to integrate our ESG-strategy effectively into our business processes and deliver on our sustainability commitments. The ESG risk assessment of Morningstar Sustainalytics' provides us with solid guidance and it challenges us to continuously improve. Throughout the past year, our entire organization has been dedicated to implementing improvements in all areas that contribute to sustainability, social cohesion, and transparency. Every part of our group of companies has come to realize that only through collective action we can truly make a difference. And how wonderful it is to be rewarded for our hard work?

Ultimately, this is beneficial for everyone. With this rating our customers know that, by using our products and services, they can achieve a positive impact on the final product they deliver.
