The awards are the largest of its kind in the United Kingdom and are based on interviews with board directors, analysts and city commentators. They recognize factors critical to business success across 12 categories, including sustainability, quality of management, quality of products and services, and leadership.
Croda’s success in the awards followed recognition from peers for its environmental responsibility, with the company placed fourth in this category, ahead of 246 other companies included in the study.
The results of the awards were published in a special edition of Management Today and are the outcome of a peer-review study of corporate reputation.
Steve Foots, chief executive of Croda said, “This award, and the recognition from our peers, is testament to the hard work and dedication of all our employees. It’s particularly pleasing to see that our leadership position in sustainability has earned us the respect of our peers.
He added, "I am hugely proud of all that we have achieved throughout such a challenging year. I’d like to thank all Croda employees for their hard work and for the innovative ways they have supported each other, and our customers, throughout the pandemic.”
