Croda Improves Sustainability Scores

Croda, the global specialty chemical manufacturer, achieved its highest score to date on the 2015 Climate Change CDP disclosure and its first water impacts disclosure scored above the industry average.

CDP is a non-profit organization that benchmarks a company’s environmental impacts against its peers. In 2015, Croda achieved its highest score to date for Climate Change impacts: 96B (on a scale of 100A – 0E). The disclosure score improved to 96, from 92 in 2014, and the company maintained its “B’” rating for performance.

This is the first year that Croda’s disclosure of water management data to CDP was benchmarked, and it received a “B” rating, ahead of the global average and industry average score of “B-” (on a scale of A-F).

Croda are one of the few companies globally to disclose data against all three CDP programmes on water, climate change and forests. Croda's forest score is due to be published in December 2015.

“We are very encouraged with the outcome of CDP’s assessment of our 2015 disclosures so far,” said Terry Thistlethwaite, VP-sustainability, Croda. “We are fully committed to minimising our impacts on the environment, and our transparent disclosure of data against all three CDP programmes is illustrative of this.”
