Solenis remains among the top one percent of performers evaluated by EcoVadis in the chemical industry category.

WILMINGTON, Del. (USA) — For the second consecutive year, Solenis has earned the Platinum Recognition Level for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) performance from EcoVadis, a collaborative platform providing sustainability ratings and performance improvement tools for global supply chains.

“We are quite proud that our global commitment to sustainability has resulted in the prestigious Platinum status once again,” said Dr. Daniel Grell, Chief Safety, Regulatory and Quality Officer at Solenis. “Once you have achieved this level, it becomes more difficult to maintain, with additional questions to answer and criteria to meet. All companies are striving to improve year after year, so it gets increasingly harder to be part of the one percent.

“This is a reflection of the work of 6,500 people in 120 countries and their devotion to our internal emphasis on people, performance and results,” he added. “We look forward to continuously improving and making this announcement again next year.”

“The renewed recognition is especially notable as the company has continued to grow and integrate new operations,” said John Panichella, CEO.

“Meeting and exceeding our sustainability goals, and helping our customers do the same, is a top daily priority, just like safety,” said Panichella. “It is a Day One responsibility for everyone who joins our company, and we are proud of this.”

Solenis, a leading global producer of specialty chemicals for water-intensive industries, remains among the top one percent of performers evaluated by EcoVadis in the chemical industry category. Prior to achieving Platinum status in 2022, Solenis twice had been awarded Gold Level evaluation status.

The EcoVadis methodology is built on international CSR standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact and the ISO 26000, covering 200+ purchasing categories, 175+ countries and 21 CSR issues grouped in four themes: environmental, labor and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement.
