Ingevity recognized on Newsweek’s America’s Most Responsible Companies 2023 list
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C., Dec. 08, 2022 – Ingevity Corporation (NYSE:NGVT) today announced it has been recognized on Newsweek Magazine’s list of America’s Most Responsible Companies 2023. The award recognizes the top 500 most responsible companies in the United States (US), spanning 14 industries.
Ranked 58 of 500, this recognition marks Ingevity’s debut on Newsweek’s annual list. The company ranked 10th in the Materials and Chemicals category and was number one among public companies based in South Carolina.
America’s Most Responsible Companies were screened from a pool of the top 2,000 public companies by revenue with headquarters in the US and ranked based on publicly available key performance indicators (KPIs) as well as an independent survey. The KPIs focused on company performance in the environmental, social and corporate governance areas, while the independent survey asked citizens about their perception of company activities related to corporate social responsibility. Statista, a leading global provider of market and consumer data, provided the analysis for Newsweek.
“I am proud of the work our team has done to earn recognition on Newsweek’s list of America’s Most Responsible Companies 2023,” said Ingevity president and CEO, John Fortson. “Ingevity was founded with a purpose to create renewably sourced products that safeguard the health of our world, and this award publicly affirms the positive impact of our 100-year sustainability legacy as well as the environmental, social and corporate governance contributions we are making in support of the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).”
