Univar Solutions Inc. recently announced that it has been included in Newsweek’s America’s Most Responsible Companies 2022 list. This award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., a statistics portal and industry ranking provider.
America’s Most Responsible Companies were reportedly selected based on publicly available key performance indicators (KPIs) derived from corporate social responsibility (CSR) reports, sustainability reports, and corporate citizenship reports, as well as an independent survey. The KPIs focused on company performance in environmental, social, and corporate governance areas, while the independent survey asked U.S. citizens about their perception of company activities related to corporate social responsibility.
The final list recognizes the top 500 most responsible companies in the U.S., spanning 14 industries. Univar reports that its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) approach is driven by its purpose to help keep communities healthy, fed, clean, and safe. This achievement recognizes Univar’s efforts and commitments, including ESG goals related to:
- Climate action
- Resource use
- Release prevention
- Sustainable sourcing
- Diversity, equity, and inclusion
- Sustainable solutions
- Community engagement
“We are proud that Newsweek has recognized the progress our team has made since we first established our sustainability goals in 2017,” said David Jukes, president and CEO. “Since our initial sustainability report in 2008, we have consistently demonstrated our commitment to transparency and our ability to deliver on our ambitious goals. We look forward to continuing to lead within the space as we work to achieve our latest set of ESG targets, including reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.”
According to Jennifer McIntyre, Univar’s chief people and culture officer and executive ESG lead, “Univar Solutions is ecstatic to be recognized on Newsweek’s list of America’s Most Responsible Companies 2022 as this reflects a commitment to grow through both our commercial strategic priorities and sustainability approach, while showing progress against our ESG goals. Managing ESG risks and opportunities is essential to the way we do business as we look for ways to make a positive impact on society, the environment and economies around the globe.”
