Croda International Plc, the specialty chemical company, has been listed as one of the top Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World for a second consecutive year.
Croda was ranked 28th in the Global 100 listing. In its tenth year, this index has come to be recognised as the gold standard in corporate sustainability evaluation. It assesses 12 quantitative indicators covering financial, social and environmental performance of around 4,000 of the world’s largest listed companies.
This result is testament to Croda’s commitment to sustainability and the central role it plays in the Company’s growth strategy. It came the day after sustainability analysts, Trucost, identified Croda as being one of just 34 Natural Capital Decoupling Leaders, which they define as companies who ‘increased revenue while decreasing natural capital impacts in their operations and supply chain over the last five years’.
Commenting, Steve Foots, Chief Executive of Croda, said: “Sustainability is a major point of differentiation for our business and I am delighted that both our Global 100 position and the recognition from Trucost endorses this. We are confident our strategy will generate even greater benefits for the environment in which we operate, our customers, the people that we work with and for our shareholders.”
