Länsförsäkringar awarded Environmental Star of the Year

In order to reward active environmental work, Coor has instituted the award Environmental Star of the Year. The award is given to an outstanding customer in Sweden that works to create more sustainable services.

The award is preceded by an extensive environmental review of the services Coor delivers to its customers. The environmental review is based on Coor's proprietary environmental tool Coor Green Services—the first comprehensive environmental certification program in the service sector.

Länsförsäkringar high level of ambition and impressive decisiveness make them a deserving winner of Environmental Star of the Year.

This year's award ceremony was held on 4 April at Länsförsäkringar AB, where the company was awarded Environmental Star of the Year 2015. Länsförsäkringar has shown considerable interest in Coor Green Services. The goal for 2015 was to achieve gold certification, and Länsförsäkringar has introduced measures that allowed the company to achieve the gold level in a relatively short period of time—impressive work that's paid off.

"Länsförsäkringar decided to progress from Silver to Gold using our tool Coor Green Services, and has collaborated closely with Coor. They made a large number of decisions and implemented them in a very short period of time. Their high level of ambition and impressive decisiveness make them a deserving winner of Environmental Star of the Year," commented AnnaCarin Grandin, President at Coor in Sweden.

The award consists of a cash amount that the winner donates to its chosen charity. Länsförsäkringar will be donating the funds to the forestation project Vi-skogen.

"We have high ambitions, and I would obviously like to win this award again in a year or two. I think part of the reason we won is because we've created a climate where environmental considerations are seen as being important, and partly because we've implemented measures in and around the property, including energy savings. Coor has contributed actively to this work," commented Sten Dunér, President of Länsförsäkringar AB.
