energy-sustainability21056Denmark’s 21nd CSR conference has recognised Palsgaard’s 2014 CSR report as Denmark’s best in the Under 2000 Employee category.

The award was presented to the company’s CEO, Jakob Thoisen, by Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary, in a ceremony that concluded the conference at the historic surroundings of the old Copenhagen stock exchange.

The CSR Award 2015 is bestowed on companies that produce remarkable CSR reports and which act to inspire others. Nominated CSR reports are assessed based on three broad criteria: Relevance, clarity and credibility. The integrated reporting category is evaluated in terms of the internationally recognised IIRC framework.

“Palsgaard has produced a complete, clear report, giving its reader a good understanding of the company’s CSR activities and Palsgaard’s determination to create ‘shared value’ based on the opportunities and risks it identifies in the value chain,” said Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess. “As a producer of food ingredients, Palsgaard is focused on palm oil sustainability issues, where it has set ambitious goals to ensure it remains an industry front-runner.”

“The reader is guided along with good overviews and illustrations, and for each focus area, Palsgaard highlights its challenges, risks and future scenarios, which creates balance and provides insight into the company’s environment. The company describes its corporate governance well, demonstrating dedication to CSR as an integrated part of the business. Palsgaard’s report aligns with GRI G4, and comprises the company’s Communication on Progress for the UN Global Compact.”

“Our 2014 CSR Report makes a clear statement that Palsgaard is committed to sustainability, answering an increasingly important requirement in the food manufacturing supply chain,” said Thoisen.” We emphasise a high standard of reporting both as a way to enable better business with our stakeholders around the world, and as a tool that us helps to document and improve our overall performance.”

Palsgaard’s 2010 CSR report won the national award as the best first-time CSR report.
