This recognition is well-deserved and reflects the importance of our adoption of the GRI framework for sustainability reporting.”

The EcoVadis CSR rating measures the quality of a company’s CSR management system – through its policies, actions, and results. The assessment focuses on 21 issues, which are grouped into four themes: Environment, Labor Practices & Human Rights, Fair Business Practices, and Sustainable Procurement. The issues assessed and their relative weight vary based on the company’s activities, size, and geographic location.

Trinseo’s overall score placed in the top quarter of all assessed industry peers while also ranking above average in all four themes with its best rating coming in the Ethics category.
