LatRosTrans Becomes a Sustainability Champion

june 16, 2015 / LatRosTrans

LLC LatRosTrans, a daughter company of JSC Ventspils nafta, this year has ascended to the silver category in the Sustainability Index and has received a “Sustainability Champion” award, having demonstrated the fastest growth, taking into account all the criteria of the index. LLC LatRosTrans participated in the Sustainability Index for the second consecutive year in order to evaluate its corporate responsibility and sustainability performance.

“Participation in the Sustainability Index has enabled us to understand our strengths and the areas where we need to improve. During this year we have done much for enhancing our corporate responsibility strategy. The results of the Sustainability Index prove that the experts have positively assessed our performance,” – states Igors Stepanovs, Board Member of LLC LatRosTrans.

The manager of LLC LatRosTrans, as the major corporate responsibility projects implemented this year, mentions investments in the sphere of education, for example, support in organising the Job Shadow Day 2015 and in establishing a secondary school of engineering sciences at the Riga Technical University.

Thinking about long-term succession of employees and realising that for ensuring daily operations of the company we need engineers, we are investing today in our future employees and supporting the projects that invite and help young people to study engineering sciences,” – explains Igors Stepanovs.

The Sustainability Index is held in Latvia for the sixth consecutive year. The partners of this initiative are the Institute for Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility, the Employers’ Confederation of Latvia and the Free Trade Union Confederation of Latvia.
