ANGUS is an EcoVadis gold rated company

 

 


 

Corbion received an EcoVadis Gold Rating in 2019—a rating which puts them amongst the best 1% of all rated companies in the chemical sector worldwide. They have additionally approved targets for the Science Based Targets™ initiative, and the majority of Corbion’s revenue is tied to UN Sustainability Goals, including Goal #3-Good Health & Wellbeing, and Goal #12-Responsible Consumption & Production.

 


 

 

 

Dow is focused on leading, elevating and setting the standard for transparent dialogue with science-based knowledge. They empower customers with superior performing and affordable solutions that are safe for people and the planet. Dow has been named to Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for the 20th year, and was also named to Fortune Magazine’s 2019 “Change the World” list.

 


 

 

 

 

DSM has a gold rating on EcoVadis (75/100)—a rating which puts them amongst the best 1% of all rated companies in the chemical sector worldwide. They have also received an A rating with the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) for their climate reporting. DSM has been featured three years in a row on the Fortune Magazine list of “Companies Changing the World”, and has been named the Industry Group Leader on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index eight times in the last 15 years. DSM’s largest production site for vitamins A, E, K and Folic Acid is now completely carbon neutral as of 2019, and their proprietary production process for Vitamin E delivers the best sustainability results in the market place (validated by life cycle analysis). A recently completed life cycle analysis on DSM’s Ascorbic Acid shows it is the most sustainable source of vitamin C in the Industry.

 


 

INOLEX is a proud member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and has achieved RSPO Supply Chain Certification. 100% of their palm-derived ingredients are available as RSPO Mass Balance. INOLEX also uses a Responsible Sourcing Sustainability Questionnaire to establish a standard to gather detailed information from their raw material vendors—in many cases, down to the plantations and mills where the raw materials are sourced, harvested and processed.

 


 

All of Solvay’s US production sites are Mass Balance certified (MB), and their list of specific products that also have MB certification is growing. Solvay also offers over a dozen 100% Renewable Carbon Index (RCI) surfactant products within their portfolio, and the guars used in their Jaguar line use sustainable sourcing practices from dedicated growers.

 


 

Sun Chemical helped found the Responsible Mica Initiative (RMI) which helps to ensure responsible mining practices for micas in developing countries.
