The Responsible Entrepreneurship Gala was held on 25 May, recognising 56 Estonian companies with a Gold, Silver or Bronze Label. For the third year in a row, we have reached the Bronze level of the Responsible Entrepreneurship Index.
The Quality Label is awarded to companies participating in the Estonian Responsible Entrepreneurship Index, who emphasise the sustainable development of the company, and invest strategically in the development of the social and natural environment.
"The more responsible entrepreneurs we have, the stronger our country will be! It’s namely our government that has a clear role in creating a better environment for entrepreneurship and developing responsibility, and companies must be the government’s role-models and forerunners with regard to responsibility,” said Kadri Simson, the Minister of Economic Affairs and Infrastructure.
