Univar Solutions Inc. has been named on Newsweek's list of America's Most Responsible Companies 2024. This marks a third consecutive year of recognition from the award, which is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., a leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The list recognizes 500 companies for their ESG commitments.

Through publicly available information derived from reporting around ESG as well as Corporate Citizenship, and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) targets, the 2024 list represents participants that have measured well against key performance indicators (KPI). Findings included information and data gathered from an independent survey asking U.S. citizens about their perception of Univar Solutions and its results related to CSR and ESG.

"Receiving this recognition for a third consecutive year from Newsweek is a true accomplishment and shows a record of success as our teams work to deliver impressive results in connection with our environmental sustainability, social impact, and governance targets," said David Jukes, president and chief executive officer. "Every year we strive to get better and continue to lead our industry in many different ways. Our efforts include our recent decision to build and publish a robust Scope 3 roadmap through close collaboration with our supply chain for our near-term goal."

Spanning numerous industries, the honor of being part of Newsweek's list of America's Most Responsible Companies 2024 is a demonstration of Univar Solutions ongoing focus and achievements. Recent accomplishments for the company include reducing absolute Scopes 1 and 2 emissions by 16.31% from its baseline1; reducing the global Total Case Incident Rate (TCIR) 30% to 0.33 in 2022, compared to a baseline1 of 0.47; strengthening its sourcing activities by rolling out a Supplier Code of Conduct to new suppliers and hundreds of legacy suppliers in the United States, covering over 32.5% of its product suppliers (measured by spend2); while continuing to expand its sustainable product portfolio.
