Recognized for global climate leadership with A- score from CDP

Nouryon has been awarded a score of A- in the global CDP Climate Change category, in recognition of the Company’s progress in implementing current best practices in sustainability targets, value chain engagement, and opportunity disclosures. The A- score places the Company at the leadership level, above the chemical industry average score of B. This marks the third consecutive year Nouryon has engaged with CDP.

We are also proud of our EcoVadis Gold rating, placing us in the top 5% of companies 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.
