Valmet has received Bronze Class distinction in SAM Sustainability Yearbook 2020 for excellent sustainability performance. Sustainability Yearbook is a comprehensive publication providing in-depth analysis on corporate sustainability. This year's report includes more than 4,700 companies.

Every year since 2004, the Sustainability Yearbook has showcased the sustainability performance of the world’s largest companies in each industry as determined by their score in the annual SAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA). The CSA is an analysis of economic, environmental and social performance of the world’s leading companies, assessing issues covering climate change strategies, supply chain standards, labour practices, corporate governance and risk management. This year the publication was launched under the S&P Global brand, with increased focus on financially material ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) metrics.

The companies are ranked as gold, silver or bronze class on the basis of their performance.
