Compass Minerals Ranked as one of Corporate Responsibility’s 50 Most Improved Corporate Citizens

Compass Minerals was named one the “Most Improved Corporate Citizens” in 2015 within the Russell 1000 stock market index as determined by Corporate Responsibility Magazine, a publication recognized as the leading voice for corporate responsibility.

The magazine’s list ranks each Russell 1000 company according to performance on 298 data points related to corporate responsibility. These data points, gathered from publicly available information such as the Compass Minerals sustainability report, measure transparency, accountability and business success. Being included in this ranking is a positive reflection on the company’s commitment to transparency, as exemplified by the publication of a data-driven sustainability report that conforms to the Global Reporting Initiative™ G4 framework.

“It’s a great honor to be recognized for our commitment and actions toward building a more sustainable company for the future,” said Fran Malecha, Compass Minerals president and CEO. “The company has embraced a comprehensive approach to sustainability and our values, our corporate sustainability principles and our strategic vision will guide our path forward.”
