Inclusion on sustainability rankings and indices reflect Ecolab’s proven record of advancing sustainable growth
Ecolab, Inc., the global leader in water, hygiene and infection prevention solutions and services, today announced it has been recognized for climate and water leadership by CDP and named to the Dow Jones Sustainability™ Indices. The distinguished recognitions further demonstrate Ecolab’s sustainability leadership.
Ecolab received leadership-level rankings from CDP, earning an A- ranking for both climate and water security. This marks the fourth consecutive year of being recognized by CDP for water security and second consecutive year for climate. It’s Ecolab’s third consecutive year on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index and eighth consecutive year on the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index.
“Taking action on sustainability, climate and water not only protects our planet but also drives profitable growth,” said Christophe Beck, Chairman and CEO of Ecolab. “We are proud to be recognized again by CDP and the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices and look forward to continuing to show how operating sustainably accelerates growth and delivers substantive value while making the world a better place.”
CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is widely recognized as the leading standard for corporate environmental transparency. Ecolab rose to the leadership level for water and climate amid record-level participation and evaluation of nearly 15,000 companies scored for their environmental disclosure.
