Throughout this first semester of 2023, we continued working on integrating our new acquisitions and have started to profit from the synergies achieved.”
Committed to sustainability
Logista has been awarded the Ecovadis silver medal and places it within the top 1% of companies in the industry.
The Ecovadis medal adds to other distinctions obtained previously by the company. Once again in 2022, CDP, which recognises global companies leading the fight against climate change, acknowledged Logista’s work as a driver of sustainable change through its value chain, including the company in its Supplier Engagement Leader category. In addition, Logista obtained a qualification of A- in its annual index, thus making it into the Leadership category one more year.
Moreover, Logista’s firm commitment to sustainability has been recognised once again in October 2022 by Sustainalytics, one of the top evaluators of Corporate Social Responsibility and Corporate Governance worldwide. After analysing the company’s ESG criteria, Sustainalytics awarded it an ESG risk classification of 13.7 over 100, highlighting its Low Risk of experiencing material financial impact due to ESG factors, and thus awarding an Industry TOP RATED 2023 accreditation, as number 11 among 365 evaluated companies in the Transportation industry.
Perspectives for 2023
The outstanding results obtained during this period, including the estimation of the stock value variation registered up to date, enable Logista to raise its forecast for the fiscal year 2023, to a growth of around 14% in Adjusted EBIT compared to 2022 figures. This growth takes into account that the estimated profit on inventory has mostly been recorded during the first semester and includes the contribution of the new acquisitions.
