Nynas recognized for sustainability

Nynas has received the EcoVadis Gold Sustainability rating, this puts the company in the top group of its category for sustainability performance.

“We are pleased to have been awarded a Gold rating from EcoVadis, maintaining the high level held for soon 10 years”, says Simon Day, VP Naphthenics at Nynas. “It confirms our commitment to providing customers and partners with transparent and trustworthy sustainability credentials. I would also like to highlight the importance of this award to both our employees and to the local communities in which we operate.”

”As tangible support to our customers seeking to develop more sustainable products and operations, Nynas provides a broad portfolio of products with sustainable attributes. Examples are bio-based grades such as the NYTRO® BIO 300 X and NYTEX® BIO 6200, as well as several other grades which contribute to lower energy consumption, improved efficiency, recyclability and HSSE in various industry processes and applications. Continuing our sustainability journey, the portfolio will this year be expanded with new product offers, some contributing to sustainable development through their raw material base and some through their effect on performance and efficiency in their use phase. With these we continue our strive to support Nynas’ and our customers’ developments toward a more sustainable future, concludes Dr. Gaia Franzolin, Marketing Director Naphthenics at Nynas.
