Nynas has received the coveted EcoVadis Platinum CSR rating, putting the naphthenic base oil producer in the top 1% for sustainability performance.

EcoVadis is an independent global assessor of environmental and labour practices, ethics and supply chain sustainability. Nynasโ€™ most recent ratings were completed in March 2021.

โ€œWe are pleased to have been awarded a Platinum rating from EcoVadis, after having scored Gold for the last seven years,โ€ says Simon Day, VP Naphthenics at Nynas. โ€œIt confirms our commitment to providing customers and partners with transparent and trustworthy sustainability credentials. I would also like to highlight the importance of this award to both our employees and to the local communities in which we operate.โ€

โ€As tangible support to our customers seeking to develop more sustainable products and operations, Nynas introduced two bio-based grades โ€“ NYTROยฎ BIO 300 X and NYTEXยฎ BIO 6200 โ€“ as well as several other grades which contribute to lower energy consumption, improved efficiency, recyclability and HSSE in various industry processes and applications. 

Continuing its sustainability journey, Nynas will introduce several new products this year to support Nynasโ€™ plans toward a more sustainable future, said Dr. Gaia Franzolin, marketing director, Naphthenics, at Nynas. 

โ€œThe award is recognition of our continuous commitment to all aspects of sustainability,โ€ said Marika Rangstedt, manager, Sustainable Development, Nynas. โ€œHowever, this is an ongoing process and we will continue to focus on improving our performance against a backdrop of tougher standards and requirements.
