LITTLETON, Colo., Oct. 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Innospec Inc. (Nasdaq:IOSP)
today announced that the company has published its Sustainable Development
Report for 2012.

Patrick Williams, President and CEO, said, "The publication of our annual
Sustainable Development report marks yet another step forward in our goals of
producing products which bring about environmental benefits, and doing so in a
manner which is compliant, safe and leaves only gentle footprints on the
environment. We are firm believers in 'what gets measured gets attention,' and
I am pleased to report that we have been able to further extend the scope of
our report to reflect the wider areas of activity. It is also important that
we are engaging with other stakeholders, including our customers, to help us
identify future priorities."

Peter Shields, Group Director of Safety, Heath and Environment, added "Our key
statistics as regards the safety of our operations, the energy and waste we
produce and the impact of our operations on the environment all show positive
trends, although the rate of improvement reflects the increasing complexity of
the improvement projects. We continue to invest in terms of increased
resources and capital, to bring about further improvements."
