It evaluates companies based on their performance in the three key areas of environmental impact, social responsibility, and corporate governance. BOAL Group's high ranking is a reflection of the company's efforts to minimize its environmental footprint, promote ethical business practices, and support the well-being of its employees, customers, and communities.
