Archroma was evaluated by EcoVadis, an organization specialized in assessing the CSR performance of companies on a global basis. The assessment focuses on 21 criteria which are grouped into 4 themes: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement.

“Archroma has built a strong reputation as a global leader in developing innovations and systems that help minimize resource, increase productivity and create value for its customers. The company refers to this commitment as The Archroma Way to a Sustainable World: Safe, efficient, enhanced, it’s our nature.” The company said in its statement.

Archroma, which was undergoing the assessment for the third year, had set itself the target to reach the EcoVadis Gold rating and the company will use the report to further improve its CSR performance and target setting.

"For Archroma, sustainability is a process of bringing continued improvement to our societal, environmental and economic performance, and that of our customers" comments Heike van de Kerkhof, CEO at Archroma. "We are extremely proud of this first Gold rating by EcoVadis, which is a strong encouragement that we are heading to the right direction in the way we run our own operations, because it’s our nature."
