A Burlington renewable chemicals company specializing in bio-based materials has been recognized for its sustainability efforts.

EcoSynthetix was awarded a platinum medal by EcoVadis, a globally-recognized agency for business ratings of supply chains, for placing in the top one per cent of the 90,000 companies rated.

“Sustainability is fundamental to us, it’s our daily business. Our bio-based binders offer a sustainable alternative compared to conventional petroleum-based binders used by manufacturers,” said Jeff MacDonald, CEO of EcoSynthetix.

“This Platinum designation from EcoVadis reflects both our product offering and our approach toward sustainability, environmental stewardship and governance. Achieving a 99th percentile ranking in our first two years of participating in the program is a credit to our team.

“The market is moving to us as it searches for sustainable alternatives. Independent third-party rankings support our outreach activities. Consumers and retailers are increasingly aware of the production and supply chain practices of manufacturers. We offer a solution that directly addresses these issues, reducing their carbon footprint with a healthier offering.”

According to EcoVadis, EcoSynthetix’s program qualifies as a structured and proactive sustainability approach. The company exhibits engagement and tangible actions on major issues with detailed implementation information with significant sustainability reporting on actions and key performance indicators.

EcoSynthetix offers a range of sustainable engineered biopolymers that allow customers to reduce their use of harmful materials, such as formaldehyde and styrene-based chemicals.

The Company’s flagship products, DuraBind, Bioform, and EcoSphere, are used to manufacture wood composites, personal care products, and paper and packaging, and enable performance improvements, economic benefits and carbon footprint reduction.

Ecosynthetix is located at 3365 Mainway.
