Croda Receives EcoVadis Platinum Status

Croda International Plc, using smart science to create, manufacture and deliver specialty life-enhancing ingredients, celebrates this month's achievement of new Platinum status by EcoVadis.

This Platinum award not only places Croda in the top 1% of all companies in the chemical industry, but also in the top 1% of all companies rated by the platform. EcoVadis' rigorous methodology evaluates more than 75,000 companies in 160 countries and 200 business sectors. It helps determine the extent to which a company has integrated sustainability / CSR principles into its business management system and activities.

The assessment methodology is based on international sustainability standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact and the ISO 26000 standard. The evidence-based methodology covers the assessment on four themes: environment, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable sourcing. Croda was identified as having advanced CSR practices in three of these categories.

Stuart Arnott, President of Croda's Sustainability Division, commented on the review: “We have been evaluated by EcoVadis for almost 10 years, and we achieved 'Gold' status for the first time in 2012. Since then we have continued to improve and are determined to go even further, aiming for a score of at least 85/100 by 2023 and to be “outstanding” in all four themes by 2030 This ambition supports our leadership position and our commitment to be the most sustainable supplier of innovative ingredients.
