CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Dec. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Quaker Houghton (NYSE: KWR), the global leader in industrial process fluids, has been named one of America's Most Responsible Companies by Newsweek. The list, presented by Newsweek and global research firm Statista, Inc., recognizes the top 500 most responsible companies in the U.S. across 14 industry subcategories. America's Most Responsible Companies were selected based on publicly available key performance indicators derived from CSR Reports, Sustainability Reports, and Corporate Citizenship Reports, as well as an independent survey. The awards list was announced on December 2 and can be viewed on Newsweek's website at newsweek.com/americas-most-responsible-companies-2022.

"We are honored to be recognized alongside so many other well-known and respected companies," said CEO Andy Tometich. Mr. Tometich continued, "Our vision for sustainability is to create social, environmental, and economic progress, while helping our customers do the same. This award reaffirms that we are on the right path, thanks to the efforts of our global team."

Newsweek partnered with Statista to evaluate the top 2,000 public companies by revenue with headquarters in the U.S. on key corporate responsibility indicators focused on company performance in the environmental, social, and corporate governance areas. Statista also conducted a survey of more than 11,000 people asking for their perception of the companies' ESG practices.

"Designing a holistic sustainability strategy has been critical to how we operate," said Wilbert Platzer, SVP of Global Operations, EHS & Procurement. "We are committed to continuously improve our operations, reduce our product footprint, enhance workplace health and safety, and support our colleagues and the communities where we live and work. There is much promise ahead." Mr. Platzer continued.

The inclusion of Quaker Houghton on the 2022 list of America's Most Responsible Companies marks the first year the company has made the coveted ranking. To learn more about Quaker Houghton's sustainability program, visit quakerhoughton.com/sustainability.
