The World of precious Metals

Umicore in the top 10 most sustainable companies worldwide


Not only is Umicore ranked 7th in the 2019 Global 100, we are also the number one among companies which produce or transform metals and the only one of them in the top 10. We can all be proud of this strong result achieved thanks to our top resource productivity for energy, carbon, water, NOx and SOx, combined with strong board diversity and high exposure to clean revenues. 

Corporate Knights, a research company focusing on sustainable performance rankings, announced this good news on January 22. The 15th edition of the Global 100 includes analysis of 7,500 corporations with companies from 21 countries encompassing all sectors of the economy. 
This good ranking is great recognition of our combined sustainability efforts as it measures the percentage of revenues earned from products or services that have environmental or well-defined social benefits.  

Marc Grynberg commented: “I am delighted that Umicore is once more recognized as one of the most sustainable corporations in the world. Sustainability is integral to our strategy and business model and we consistently demonstrate our commitment to clean mobility and recycling both through cutting edge technology innovation and significant investments.”
