ST. LOUIS, April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sigma-Aldrich Corporation (Nasdaq: SIAL) was recently named by Corporate Responsibility (CR) Magazine to its list of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens, which ranks public companies based on outstanding corporate responsibility performance in 2013.  Sigma-Aldrich ranked 28 on the list in its third appearance.

"Sustainability at Sigma-Aldrich directly supports our mission of enabling science to improve the quality of life," said Rakesh Sachdev, President and CEO.  "We recognize the impact that being a responsible corporate citizen can have on making the world a cleaner, healthier and safer place to live and we are honored to be recognized for our continuous efforts."

The list ranks companies on the Russell 1000 Index and is governed by a Ratings and Rankings Committee of the Corporate Responsibility Officers Association (CROA).
