“We are pleased that our commitment to integrate sustainable development principles in our business has been highly recognised by RobecoSAM.

However, we believe that sustainable development means continuous improvement in the way we deal with environmental, social and governance issues, and there is always room for improvement regardless of where we are now” — said Daria Goncharova, Chief Sustainability Officer of Polymetal.

RobecoSAM’s Sustainability Yearbook lists the world’s most sustainable companies that fall within the top 15% of their industry in environmental, social and governance performance.
