Standard Ethics places Applus+ first in list of Spanish mid caps

    • The Applus+ Group is rated as “Sustainable” by Standard Ethics.

    December 7, 2022 – Standard Ethics has recently published its first ever SE Mid Spanish Index and placed Applus+ first in the list of 20 listed mid-cap Spanish companies.

    Applus+ is rated as “Sustainable” with a classification of EE+, which is described as “Very Strong”. The rating, originally issued in December 2021, was unsolicited. Standard Ethics issues them to corporations and administrations in order to update indices and country rankings.

    The Standard Ethics Rating is the result of statistical and scientific work carried out since 2004 to provide a snapshot of the economic world in relation to ethical principles promoted by large international organisations. The rating is an opinion on how distant a corporation is from international sustainability guidelines.

    Joan Amigó, Chief Executive Officer of Applus+, says: “We are proud to have received this rating from Standard Ethics. It properly reflects the effort we are making in ensuring high levels of good Governance, as well as striving to be a force for good in society, especially for our people, our communities, the environment and our customers, whom we support in their sustainability efforts.

    Standard Ethics is a Self-Regulated Sustainability Rating Agency that issues Non-Financial Sustainability Ratings applying the models of credit rating agencies. It aims to promote sustainability and governance standard principles emanating from the European Union, the OECD and the United Nations.
