“The upgrade of Verallia’s credit rating by Standard & Poor’s, shortly after the upgrade of the credit rating by Moody’s, confirms the Investment Grade status of the Group. It reflects Standard & Poor’s confidence in our financial policy and in the robustness of our operational performance and profitable growth strategy, reinforced by a clear decarbonation roadmap.” said Nathalie Delbreuve, Chief Financial Officer of Verallia.
