The Global 100 list of the world’s most sustainable large corporations has been published. UCB has soared to number 4 - up more than 60 places from last year.

Our inclusion among the top performers in the corporate world reflects our commitment to delivering value to patients, as well as to society and shareholders, while respecting our environment.

The list, published by Corporate Knights, is released annually on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos. This is the 14th year in which the top 100 is selected based on a set of up to 17 environmental, social and governance indicators.

Almost 6,000 publicly listed companies from 22 countries, and across all sectors of the economy, are assessed as part of a rigorous process.

According to Corporate Knights, the leading companies demonstrate the strong linkage between the delivery of superior value for society and the generation of superior financial performance. They also have greater longevity.

The Global 100 list also shows that good corporate citizenship pays in the long run. While the average multinational has been around for less than 40 years, the median age of the 2018 Global 100 companies is 85. UCB, founded in 1928, is very slightly older than average!

We are pleased that our efforts to add value in a sustainable way have been recognised again this year. It encourages us to continue our efforts in the interest of longevity – and in the hope of seeing ourselves in the Global 100 again next year.
