Croda voted most admired company in the British Chemical Sector


Croda International Plc, the name behind high-performance ingredients and technologies that feature in many of the world’s most successful brands, is today celebrating, once again, being voted Britain’s Most Admired Chemicals Company. 

Published in Management Today, the coveted awards also saw Croda named as Britain’s eighth Most Admired Company overall.

These prestigious awards are the outcome of a peer-review study of corporate reputation. The largest of its kind in the UK, the awards are judged based on interviews with board directors, analysts and City commentators. They recognise factors critical to business success across 12 categories, including sustainability, quality of management, quality of products and services, and leadership. 

This year, the awards specifically recognised Croda for its environmental governance in line with the company’s commitment to be the most sustainable supplier of innovative ingredients. 

Commenting on the incredible achievement, Steve Foots, Chief Executive of Croda said: “This award really is thanks to every one of our employees at Croda, their hard work, dedication and innovation.  

“I have never been prouder to be CEO of such a phenomenal company. In what continues to be challenging times for everyone, our employees continue to show what makes Croda so special, can-do spirit and a continued focus on using Smart science to improve lives™.

“We remain a leader in sustainability, and to have this recognised once again is a wonderful accolade.”
