We exchange views with our stakeholders and actively try to satisfy their need of reliable and clear information”, says Bengt Olof Hansson, Vice President, Corporate Sustainability at SKF.

”SKF – the winner of this year’s ranking in Sweden –  clearly shows that the company  purposefully works with the CSR questions, both regarding the amount of information and the quality of the information demanded by the financial market, “ says  Miriam Thunborg, who is responsible for the survey at Hallvarsson och Halvarsson.
