AdvanSix was recently awarded a Platinum Rating for corporate social responsibility by EcoVadis, an independent CSR assessment agency. The Platinum Rating puts the company in the top one percent of all companies assessed. AdvanSix also received a Gold Rating in 2020.
AdvanSix plays a critical role in global supply chains, innovating and delivering essential products for customers in a variety of end markets — including for building and construction, plastics, packaging, solvents, coatings, and adhesives.
As one example, AdvanSix offers products that help improve the functionality of adhesives. This includes AMS, which is used in the production of tackifying resins for hot-melt adhesives that offer low odor and superior color, and phenol, which is formulated for typical BPA applications, such as epoxy resins. Some of its related products are also the building blocks for many plastics and resins used in everyday life.
“AdvanSix is an environmentally responsible enterprise and we are extremely proud of our efforts and progress on sustainability,” said Erin Kane, president and CEO of AdvanSix. “Being recognized by EcoVadis for the second consecutive year, this time with a Platinum Rating, is further acknowledgement of our commitment to corporate social responsibility and to continuous improvement of our performance.”
The Sustainability Report provides an overview of the company’s environmental performance, ethics and governance policies, and community involvement while advancing the dialogue among employees, customers, suppliers, shareholders, and members of the communities. This year’s report was developed in alignment with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards Core, supplemented with disclosures using guidance of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) as well as the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
“We are pleased to share how we are increasingly focused on integrating sustainability into our corporate strategy as we move forward together with all our stakeholders on the journey to a more sustainable future,” added Kane.
AdvanSix is an American Chemistry Council (ACC) Responsible Care®company and its sustainability and responsible business practices are built on the foundation of its core values: Safety, Integrity, Accountability, and Respect.
