Ragn-Sells publishes the 2023 Sustainability Report

In the 2023 Sustainability Report, the environmental company Ragn-Sells welcomes everyone to the circular economy, where waste is seen as the only true source for sustainable raw materials. Ragn-Sells' sustainability efforts mirror their business strategy, emphasising profitability alongside environmental responsibility.

“If we are serious about creating a sustainable society, we must use the resources we have already extracted, over and over again. This is why everything we do is about creating a whole new attitude towards waste,” says Lars Lindén, CEO of Ragn-Sells Group.

Ragn-Sells emphasises its commitment to leading the transition to a circular economy, viewing waste as a valuable resource rather than a disposable product. The company's sustainability efforts align closely with its business strategy, focusing on delivering circular solutions to address the planet's needs. But today's view of waste stands in the way. In a circular economy, waste has to be treated as a source of sustainable resources. This requires extensive and systemic reforms.

“The past year has seen an increased focus on sustainability regulation, in particular at EU level. We warmly welcome this development. It is a necessary shift that will boost financial flows in a sustainable direction,” says Pär Larshans, Chief Sustainability Officer at Ragn-Sells Group.

For Ragn-Sells Group, the net revenue for 2023 was stronger than anticipated, albeit slightly lower than the previous year. The profit was higher than budgeted for all three business areas.

“When financially strong, we can invest in innovative solutions required for the transition to a circular economy and ensure sustainable finances in our daily operations,” says Madeleine Ljunggren, Chief Financial Officer at Ragn-Sells Group.

In the report, there are interviews with Ragn-Sells’ local company CEOs regarding the status and focus of their business in their respective markets. In the section Reporting on 2023, the work and achievements relating to Ragn-Sells' seven sustainability goals are described, along with a summary of the Group’s financial results.
