Swedish corporate websites are above average, but investor and career information lag behind

By: Freja Nilsson

In the twenty-seventh season of Webranking by Comprend, the Swedish companies show openness and transparency in areas such as corporate governance and company presentation on their websites. Still, there is room for improvement in other areas. Investor communication and career information are still challenges, and providing information on diversity and well-being among employees needs further attention.

In this year's Swedish Webranking list, we have ranked the 125 largest publicly traded Swedish companies and examined how well their corporate websites meet the requirements of their target audiences.

The average score for companies on the Swedish list this year is 49.1 out of 100 points, which is slightly higher than the European average score of 47 points. Finland has the highest average score of all countries, far ahead with 59.5 points.

When summarizing the Swedish results, we notice the following:
  • Corporate governance information and the About us sections are areas where Swedish companies perform best. They meet an average of 56 % and 55 % of the criteria in these categories, respectively.
  • Swedish companies are especially good at introducing their operations by clearly describing their purpose and goals, which 92 % of the ranked companies do.
  • Investor communication (such as information on risk management, financial goals, and strategy) continues to be the biggest challenge, where Swedish companies on average only meet 35 % of the criteria.
  • Even information related to press and media and career information are areas where Swedish companies need to improve. They are below the European average and face challenges in presenting information on the diversity and well-being of employees. There is also a gap in presenting flexibility and initiatives for employee well-being.
  • Swedish companies are good at explaining their sustainability strategy and its link to the overall corporate strategy. However, we see a challenge in communicating the fulfilment of their sustainability goals, where only 28 % of companies present data.

Sandvik: For the second year in a row, Sandvik is the Swedish company that has scored the highest, 86.4 points, which is an increase of 4.3 points since last year. Sandvik present detailed information on sustainability, corporate governance, and about us.
