We welcome SSF as a SAI Platform member

3rd March 2021

“At SSF we think that sustainability will be a main driver for our business for the years to come. At the same time there is a lot of confusion about what sustainability is. By joining SAI Platform we hope it will be easier to communicate to external stakeholders what we are doing.”

Hans Berggen, CEO, SSF
