For the fifth consecutive year, Ecolab Inc., the global leader in water, hygiene and energy technologies and services, is ranked in the top 10 on Corporate Responsibility (CR) Magazine’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens list, which recognizes the environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance of public companies in the U.S. Ecolab ranks eighth on the 2018 Best Corporate Citizens list.

“Our 48,000 associates are dedicated to a noble purpose: to make the world cleaner, safer and healthier,” said Ecolab Chairman and CEO Douglas M. Baker, Jr. “We take our responsibilities seriously – to our customers, our communities, our shareholders and to each other.”

CR Magazine's 100 Best Corporate Citizens list ranks companies on the Russell 1000 Index based on an assessment of 260 publicly available ESG data points of performance and disclosure across seven categories: environment, climate change, employee relations, human rights, governance, financial performance and philanthropy, and community support.

“Each year, CR Magazine’s the 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking measures the success of the Brands Taking Stands movement by celebrating the most successful, most transparent companies that report on their responsible practices,” said Dave Armon, publisher of CR Magazine. “We congratulate those honored on this year's list for their commitment to corporate responsibility.”

Ecolab ranked 10th on the 2017, fifth on the 2016, ninth on the 2015 and seventh on the 2014 Best Corporate Citizens lists.
