CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – Dec. 9, 2020 – Vantage™ Specialty Chemicals has earned its first-ever EcoVadis Gold rating for its 2020 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) performance. The Gold rating acknowledges the ecovadis.pngcompany’s commitment and continual sustainability achievements and elevates Vantage into the top 5% of evaluated chemical companies in its category.
 
Vantage earned a Silver rating in 2018 and 2019 from EcoVadis, a leading solution for monitoring sustainability in global supply chains. EcoVadis CSR experts awarded the Gold rating for 2020 upon assessing progress Vantage made with company policies, procedures and practices pertaining to environmental, labor practices and human rights, fair business practices and sustainable procurement issues.

“The Gold rating acknowledges that Vantage has an unwavering commitment to sustainability and has maintained continual sustainability achievements,” said Vantage Chief Technology Officer Allison Yake. “This recognizes our efforts and contributes to our reputation as a responsible, committed company in the personal care, food, consumer and industrial markets. Customers care about CSR, and it’s important to us to deliver on what matters to them and to maintain what Vantage stands for.”
 
Nicholas Marinelli, Global Regulatory and Sustainability Director for Vantage, added that the Gold rating demonstrates Vantage’s growing commitment to CSR.
 
“Vantage has been working on a sustainable development transformation and cultural shift over the past couple of years,” said Marinelli. “We have aligned our priorities with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, have been a Sedex member company since 2013 and apply the chemical industry’s Responsible Care guiding principles across all Vantage business units. These principles, our commitment to CSR and sustainability, and our latest EcoVadis assessment help us identify and implement continuous improvements with an aim to improve year over year.”
