Sigma-Aldrich (St Gallen, Switzerland) has been named in the “Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World”. The list was announced at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

The Global 100 is generated annually by Corporate Knights (Toronto, Canada). Twelve quantitative key performance indicators are used to score qualifying companies and range from energy and water consumption, to corporate tax strategy and employee compensation. Around 400 companies were shortlisted from global indices of mid and large cap stocks (approximately 4000 companies).

In 2010, Sigma-Aldrich implemented a number of sustainability goals that they are set to achieve by 2015, according to Sigma-Aldrich President and CEO Rakesh Sachdev. Sachdev said: "We are proud of our accomplishments and the positive impact they are having on our communities, investors, and employees as well as on our ability to continue providing customers the high quality products, services, and solutions for which we are known."
