Kraton Corporation, a leading global producer of styrenic block copolymers, specialty polymers and high-value performance products derived from pine wood pulping co-products, announces that it received a silver recognition medal for its sustainability rating from EcoVadis. It is the seventh consecutive year the company was recognised for commendable sustainability performance.

"This continuous recognition demonstrates Kraton’s commitment to sustainability at every level of our organisation,” said Nella Baerents, Kraton’s Sustainability Policy Director. "We believe sustainability will help us to grow, improve productivity and manage risks.”

High integrity and ethical behavior

Kraton works with more than 6,000 suppliers globally. Kraton’s supplier code of conduct, conflict minerals policy, and slavery and human trafficking statement guides suppliers on Kraton’s expectations. This includes high integrity and ethical behavior regarding human rights, material supply sourcing and fair competition. In 2018, Kraton began rolling out its responsible procurement program and became an Enterprise user of EcoVadis ratings to further improve sustainability performance and reduce risks in the supply chain.

"Our direct engagement with customers, and especially suppliers, through the EcoVadis platform is an example of risk management in action,” said Suzanne Pesgens, Kraton’s Vice President and Chief Procurement Officer. "At the end of the day, we have to progress and build a sustainable economy together with all actors in the value chain. No company can do it alone.”
