Croda, the Yorkshire-based specialty chemicals group, has been ranked the highest UK company in a list of 100 leading sustainable companies and the 25th highest in the world.
The listing of Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations was compiled by Corporate Knights, a Canadian media group which specialises in corporate sustainability.
Its sustainability assessment covers the financial, social and environmental performance of around 4,000 of the world’s largest listed businesses.
Steve Foots, Chief Executive of Croda, said: “I am delighted that Croda’s sustainability credentials have been endorsed so comprehensively in this report. Our high global ranking and leading position in the UK reflects the significant amount of time that we have invested in this area.
“Our objective is to excel even further and make sustainability a major point of difference for the business.
“We are confident that this strategy will generate even greater benefits for the environment in which we operate the people that we work with and our shareholders.”
Belgian materials group Umicore headed the Top 100 list, while other UK firms in the rankings included energy supplier Centrica, pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca, and Unilever.
