Nynas in top 1 % for sustainability

Nynas has received the coveted EcoVadis Platinum CSR rating, this puts the company in the top 1% for sustainability performance.

“We are pleased to have been awarded a Platinum rating from EcoVadis, after having scored Gold for the last seven 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 introduced two bio-based grades – 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, this year Nynas will introduce several new products specifically developed to expand our product offer and to support Nynas’ and our customers’ developments toward a more sustainable future, concludes Dr. Gaia Franzolin, Marketing Director Naphthenics at Nynas.

“The award is recognition of our continuous commitment to all aspects of sustainability,” explains Marika Rangstedt, Manager Sustainable Development at Nynas. “However, this is an ongoing process and we will continue to focus on improving our performance against a backdrop of tougher standards and requirements.
