Christian Kohlpaintner, chief executive officer of Brenntag SE, said, “Our commitment to a sustainable development is fundamental for Brenntag and our license to operate. It is one of the four key pillars of our ‘Strategy to Win’ and reflects the ambition of Brenntag to shape the future of our industry. The platinum status is based on a comprehensive assessment and recognizes our strong dedication towards sustainability over recent years. This achievement is once again the result of our team striving for excellence, and I can only congratulate our colleagues around the world for this extraordinary accomplishment.”

EcoVadis reviews and evaluates the performance of more than 130,000 companies across 220 industries and 180+ countries in the four areas of environment, labor & human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement.
