JGL Wins Regional ESG Leader Award

JGL is the winner of the Gold Award and recognition Regional ESG Leader 2023 in the category positive impact on society and subcategory of large companies. This decision was made by the independent International Expert Council to confer awards and recognition to the top entrepreneurs and companies in Central and Southeastern Europe. This accolade is a testament to companies that prioritise environmental and societal well-being, incorporating principles of environmental protection, social responsibility, and conscious corporate management (ESG) into their business models.

The awards were given out as part of the three-day IX Regional Entrepreneurs Summit – 300 Finest – held in Zagreb on 5 March to mark World Entrepreneurs Day. The award and recognition on behalf of JGL were received by Dorotea Pernjak Banić, Member of the Board of Directors and Marina Stojanović Večerina, Head of ESG. 

“Through its core values, ethical decisions and first steps taken nearly 30 years ago, JGL has consistently incorporated numerous good practices into its operations. This enduring commitment allows JGL to align with the three primary categories of ESG: environmental, social, and governance, particularly relevant in the context of significant changes in EU regulations today,” stated Pernjak Banić and added: “The award given to JGL on this occasion further reinforces our collective leadership responsibility: a commitment to act responsibly, persistently, and consistently, while respecting all our stakeholders. In doing so, we will continue to reaffirm our reputation as a company that stands among the very best.”

Winners were chosen from candidates across eight countries (Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Croatia, Italy, North Macedonia, Slovenia and Serbia). As part of the ceremony, the President of the Council, Prof. Majda Tafra Vlahović, PhD university professor and certified professional sustainability expert of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), addressed the winners: “Your commitment to integrating ESG principles into the fabric of your company’s operations has not only established an exceptional standard for corporate responsibility but has also demonstrated the significant benefits of such practice. As we honour you with this award, we anticipate witnessing how your company’s groundbreaking strategies will drive a wave of positive transformation across the corporate landscape, reaffirming that a commitment to ESG values is not only advantageous but also essential to fostering a sustainable and equitable future for all.”
