NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ingevity Corporation (NYSE:NGVT) today announced that it has received an industry-wide, top-quartile rating for sustainability by the 2021 S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA), an advancement in the company’s overall rating due in large part to a significant increase in its environmental score. The CSA is an independent evaluation of corporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices widely used to benchmark performance on industry-specific sustainability criteria.
“I am immensely proud of the work our team is doing to advance Ingevity’s ESG goals, and excited to see that progress acknowledged with increases in our CSA ratings,” said John Fortson, Ingevity’s president and CEO. “While we have a strong reputation for creating products and technologies that provide sustainability solutions for our customers, the CSA report also recognizes our continuing efforts to create a culture and way of working at Ingevity that is increasingly rooted in and guided by our ESG principles.”

On the basis of their performance, companies receive rankings for approximately 20 financially relevant sustainability criteria across economic, environmental and social dimensions.
