UNITED KINGDOM: The 2013 Corporate Knights’ “Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations” report has ranked Croda as the highest placed UK-based company and placed the supplier at No. 25 in the world.

The report, which is compiled annually by Corporate Knights, a Canadian media organization specializing in the area of corporate sustainability, is now in its ninth year. The data-driven corporate sustainability assessment is based on the financial, social and environmental performance of approximately 4,000 of the world’s largest listed companies.

The results of the report demonstrate Croda’s increased emphasis on sustainability and highlight the importance that it plays in the company’s ongoing strategy, according to the firm.

Croda also said it will continue to focus on enhancing the financial performance of the company and delivering key environmental, social and governance benefits.
