Consumers and producers of disposable hygiene products worldwide are becoming more invested in the idea of sustainable living. As a result, Bostik is committed to helping turn their ideas into an achievable reality. One significant way we aim to do that is through our business approach, which embraces corporate social responsibility (CSR) to meet their sustainability objectives and ours. Efforts to date are already making a difference and earning recognition. 


Embracing sustainability is part of our corporate culture

As part of the Arkema group, our CSR approach at Bostik is regularly assessed by extra-financial rating agencies and our clients on ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) criteria basis. These ratings, which are especially interesting for investors, confirm the adequacy of our CSR approach and rank us among the best performing companies in our sector. This includes:

  • Dow Jones Sustainability Indices: Arkema raises its ranking to 3rd place in 2021 Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (among 139 companies in the ‘chemicals’ category)
  • MSCI ‘A’ rating since 2017
  • CDP ‘A-‘ rating for Climate Change and a ‘B’ rating for Water Security in 2020
  • Euronext: included in the Europe 120 and Eurozone 120 indices since 2015
  • 2020 EcoVadis: Arkema ranks among the top 1% of companies in the sector since 2014 
  • FTSE4: Renewed every year since initial inclusion in 2015
