Implenia receives top rating for sustainability


Opfikon ZH – Implenia has improved its Sustainalytics sustainability rating by one point. With 86 points, the construction and real estate company consolidated its position as industry leader.

Opfikon-based construction and real estate company Implenia has received 86 points in its sustainability rating from US rating agency Morningstar Sustainalytics. This is one point more than last year. This consolidates Implenia’s leading position in the three areas of environmental, social and governance (ESG) within the construction and engineering sector, according to a media release.

Accordingly, Implenia is also well ahead in Sustainalytics’ current ESG Risk Rating and is one of the Industry Top Rated, i.e. the top performers in its sector. To do this, the company reportedly looked at industry-specific ESG risks in addition to managing ESG issues.

“As one of five corporate values and part of our mission, sustainability is firmly anchored in Implenia’s culture, as demonstrated once again by the Sustainalytics rating,” Anita Eckardt, Chair of Implenia’s Sustainability Committee, is quoted as saying in the media release. The energy transition is a major demand driver in the construction and real estate sector, he said. “We support our customers in planning and realizing real estate as well as infrastructure in a sustainable way and are constantly developing the options for doing so.”

Sustainalytics is a subsidiary of Morningstar Inc. based in Chicago, Illinois, USA, and provides data and ratings on corporate environmental, social and governance responsibility. ce/ko
