Doug Baker Named Responsible CEO of the Year by CR Magazine

October 09, 2014

Corporate Responsibility (CR) Magazine, which shines a spotlight on America’s most socially responsible chief executives, today named Ecolab Chairman and CEO Douglas M. Baker, Jr., a recipient of the 2014 Responsible CEO of the Year Award. The recognition honors Baker’s leadership and vision behind the company’s commitment to helping customers address the world’s most critical business and environmental challenges.

The award, which will be presented on October 9 at the COMMIT!Forum in New York, honors CEOs that visibly exceed standards in the areas of corporate responsibility, including environmental impact, employee relations, human rights and philanthropy. Baker is one of four CEOs to receive the 2014 Responsible CEO of the Year Award. Award winners were nominated by fellow members of the CR community and selected by an independent judging panel comprised of previous Responsible CEO of the Year Award winners and other industry leaders.

"In a business landscape where transparency, authenticity and social impact must be embedded within one’s corporate culture and supply chain, we are pleased to highlight this stellar group of CEOs and their organizations,” said Elliot Clark, CEO of SharedXpertise, the publisher of Corporate Responsibility Magazine. “These leaders remain tirelessly committed to creating and maintaining a responsible culture and supply chain and this year’s recognition is simply a reflection of that commitment.”

Over the past three years, Baker has significantly enhanced Ecolab’s ability to help address the growing global needs for clean water, safe food, healthy environments and abundant energy. This award recognizes these efforts as well as his leadership in inspiring collaboration among Ecolab associates to further expand the company’s impact. The result has been a new wave of innovation at Ecolab that focuses on sustainable results for businesses, the communities in which they operate, and the environment.
