Among other memberships, we are member and signatory of the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. An international program, it brings companies, UN agencies, and labor and civil society organizations together to support universal principles on human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. Our Company Strategy, sustainability goals and Company Code of Conduct & Ethics are aligned with conducting business in a way that supports these principles.
We are a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and Responsible Care®, and partner with Swedish regional corporate cooperative Hållbar Kemi (Sustainable Chemistry).
We are very proud to have advanced to a Platinum Rating by EcoVadis, placing us in the year's top 1% of companies then rated. EcoVadis is a global provider of business sustainability ratings and is used by Nouryon as well as by many of our customers to track performance in supply chains. The rating comprises four dimensions: Environment, Labor and Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement.
We also consider the EcoVadis ratings of our suppliers in our own procurement process. In our role as a supplier, we also provide an annual submission to EcoVadis that includes an extensive questionnaire and evidence of our policies, procedures, actions, and results.
In 2022, we once again voluntarily responded to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) climate questionnaire. We reattained our B score, the details of which are available on the CDP website.
