Sustainable Supplier of the Year is a prestigious award we set up to highlight a supplier that has excelled in the area of sustainability, and who also has demonstrated exemplary operations. Sustainability is a shared responsibility, and we definitely want to highlight our skilled suppliers and the progress we are making together. This means that the award, which we established in 2018, will play a large part in our work for a long time to come.

This joint effort has, among other things, resulted in significant reductions in the use of plastic packaging.
Peter Lo Curzio is the Dep. CTO & Sustainability Driver at Hexatronic. He believes that there is a lot to do in the field of sustainability and was full of ideas when the question of participating in a project together with Ahlsell first came up.
“The secret behind our concrete results is that we have chosen to implement measures that are fairly simple, but still make a major impact. Another success factor is that we have been able to report results and add actual value to what we have achieved.”
