Ecolab named in Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index

Ecolab Inc. – a major company in water, food safety and public health technologies and services –  has been named to Bloomberg’s 2020 Gender-Equality Index (GEI). This index footprints the financial performance of public companies that are committed to supporting gender equality by policy development, representation and transparency.

The GEI measures gender equality across five pillars: female leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, sexual harassment policies, and pro-women brand. In 2020 the index expanded to represent 84 countries and regions and a variety of industries, including automotive, banking, consumer services, engineering and construction, and retail. By exposing their gender-related metrics, the firms included in the 2020 GEI have provided an overall insight in their investment in workplace gender equality and the communities in which they operate.
