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).

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.
