The recognition is announced each December and the title is valid through the following year.

The world's most trusted business sustainability rating agency assessed more than 60,000 companies in 198 industries and 155 countries.

“We are proud of the strides made to grow our sustainability program at Trinseo,” said Walter van het Hof, Global Industry Affairs & Sustainability Leader. “Our 2019 Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility Report marked the first full year of measuring performance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards. 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. The Company was noted as having strong endorsements of external initiatives on environmental issues such as the American Chemistry Council’s (ACC) Responsible Care® and Operation Clean Sweep® programs.
