Colorado-based global specialty chemicals company Innospec on Monday (25 July) said it was awarded a Gold rating for sustainability performance by EcoVadis for the third consecutive year, which puts Innospec in the top 7% of companies globally.
EcoVadis is among the world’s largest and most trusted providers of business sustainability ratings and scores more than 85,000 companies. It uses a methodology aligned to international sustainability standards such as the Global Reporting Initiative, UN Global Compact and ISO 26000. The evidence-based methodology includes assessment against four themes: Environment, Labour & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement.
Patrick S. Williams, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our Gold rating again reflects Innospec’s continued focus on ESG and our commitment to sustainability and transparency. Sustainability themes are driving the majority of our current sales and future growth opportunities, and we are excited to continue our collaborative engagement with all stakeholders as we further invest in ESG leadership.”
Helen Coy, Global Senior ESG Manager, said, “Retaining a Gold rating recognises the collective hard work undertaken by employees at all levels of Innospec globally to advance and integrate our sustainability programs into our daily business activities.”
