EcoVadis Certification

Our ongoing commitment to the environment, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement has resulted in a Gold Sustainability Certification for 2023 from the prestigious EcoVadis ratings agency, up from Silver in 2021 which was a shared rating with our precursor, PQ Corp (Group).

With Ecovyst’s 2023 rating in the 97th percentile of companies rated by EcoVadis in our peer group, our overall score improved from the 91st percentile in 2021. Our score within the Labor and Human Rights category improved by 40% from 50 to 70 points out of 100, and the Sustainable Procurement area also increased 20% from a score of 50 to 60 points. We continue to be highly rated in the Environment and Ethics categories relative to companies in our peer group.

EcoVadis has grown to become the world’s largest provider of business sustainability ratings, with a global network of more than 100,000+ companies rated. They review seven management indicators and 21 Sustainability criteria across four themes: Environment, Labor and Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement, as part of their assessment methodology.
