About the report


The Board of Directors and CEO of Preem hereby present the Preem 2017 Sustainability Report in accordance with the Swedish Annual Accounts Act. 

The sustainability report applies to the entire Preem Group. However, sustainability data will not always be presented for the whole group. In such cases, the companies the information refers to will be clearly specified.

This report is based on Preem’s sustainability framework adopted in 2017. The framework is based on a materiality analysis, which identified Preem’s most critical sustainability areas. The report includes the parts of Preem’s business that have the greatest impact on a sustainability area. For example, this means that the “Environment and climate” section focuses on refinery and transportation operations, which is where impact on emissions and the risk of spills is the highest. Meanwhile, the “Health and safety” section focuses on all parts of Preem’s business. Read more about Preem’s materiality analysis and sustainability framework here.

Matrix for Preem’s material areas

We prepared a simplified matrix below with links to each part of the report, to increase understanding of how our material areas are related to the new law. Measurement and calculation methods are described where needed in connection with the respective key performance indicator. Targets and comparative figures are reported where applicable.

The basic data for Preem’s key performance indicators and statistics are primarily obtained from Preem’s internal business systems. The data reported is for the 2017 calendar year unless otherwise specified.

The sustainability report has not been audited externally. However, Preem’s business is audited regularly by internal and external parties from a variety of perspectives, such as in connection with our certifications for the environment, quality, the work environment and monitoring systems for renewable fuels.
