Ecolab, the global leader in water, hygiene and infection prevention solutions and services, ranks eighth on the 2021 Best Corporate Citizens list.
Commenting on the company's eighth-place ranking in this year's list, Ecolab President and CEO, Christophe Beck, said:
"Each of Ecolab’s 44,000 associates is driven by the knowledge that what we do – and how we do it – matters everywhere, and we are united in our purpose to make the world cleaner, safer and healthier,.
"We’re honored to be recognized for our commitment to corporate responsibility within our own operations and through the work we do to help our customers around the world achieve their sustainability goals."
