Nalco Named to Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for Second Time

Nalco has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for a second consecutive year.

"It is an honor to again be ranked among the world's best companies that are committed to sustainable development," said Nalco Chairman and CEO Erik Fyrwald. "We are proud not only of the recognition this brings to our own operations, but the recognition for our environmental solutions that help our customers achieve their sustainability goals. By helping thousands of companies around the world operate more efficiently, we help them reduce water and energy use, slash greenhouse gas emissions and cut other critical pollutants such as NOx, SOx and mercury. We are committed to continuing to develop new, innovative technologies that allow customers to further reduce their environmental footprint."

Nalco's 3D TRASAR® technology for cooling water saved nearly 63 billion gallons (238 million cubic meters) of water in 2008 and was recognized with a U.S. Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award. PARETO Technology for Wet-End Optimization saved papermakers 460 billion Btus of energy, eliminating more than 30,000 tons of CO2 emissions last year.

Details about these and other sustainable solutions are in Nalco's 2008 Safety, Health, Environment and Sustainability Report, which can be downloaded at

Launched in 1999, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes track the financial performance of the leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide. The indexes provide asset managers with reliable and objective benchmarks to manage sustainability portfolios.

The annual review of the World index is based on a thorough analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social performance, assessing issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, climate change mitigation, supply chain standards and labor practices. There are 317 companies listed in the 2009-10 World Index. More information on the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes is available at
