Cancarb Earns Highest Sustainability Rating from EcoVadis
June 12, 2021
Cancarb Limited has been awarded a platinum sustainability rating from EcoVadis, a global provider of scorecards for corporate and environmental sustainability. Cancarb’s new rating indicates that the company is in the top 1% of its industry for the sustainable production of carbon black. Thermax® N990 can be highly loaded while easily mixing in rubber compounds, providing excellent processing, smooth extrusion, low grit, reduced compression set and low electrical conductivity.
From Gold to Platinum
Prior to earning a platinum score, Cancarb held a gold rating from EcoVadis, which provides detailed insights into environmental, social, and ethical risks across 198 purchasing categories and 155 countries. Today there are more than 60,000 businesses in the EcoVadis network that all work with a single methodology to evaluate, collaborate, and improve sustainability performance. Cancarb’s demonstrated leadership in corporate and environmental sustainability is a success for the Canadian company.
Reducing Greenhouse Gases and Particulate Matter
In February 2021, Cancarb announced the successful commissioning of its sixth unit at its thermal carbon black production facility in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. This facility allows the company to generate electricity from previously exhausted heat energy, reducing the local area’s power generation GHG intensity by -0.53 tonnes GHG/MWh, all from their near zero particulate emissions facility.
