Recognition honors those companies who operate with purpose and incorporate integrity into their ecosystems
"Success in today's rapidly evolving economy is contingent on so much
more than business acumen. How an organization is run, the diversity of
the team, and the driving mission directly impact both the bottom line
and sustained success," states
Twenty-eighteen is the twelfth year that Ethisphere has honored those companies who recognize their role in society to influence and drive positive change, consider the impact of their actions on their employees, investors, customers and other key stakeholders and use their values and culture as an underpinning to the decisions they make every day.
"While the discourse around the world changed profoundly in 2017, a
stronger voice emerged. Global corporations operating with a common rule
of law are now society's strongest force to improve the human condition.
This year we saw companies increasingly finding their voice. The World's
Most Ethical Companies in particular continued to show exemplary
leadership," explained Ethisphere's CEO,

Methodology & Scoring
The World's Most Ethical Companies assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute's Ethics Quotient® (EQ) framework, which offers a quantitative way to assess a company's performance in an objective, consistent and standardized manner. The information collected provides a comprehensive sampling of definitive criteria of core competencies rather than all aspects of corporate governance, risk, sustainability, compliance and ethics.
Scores are generated in five key categories: ethics and compliance program (35 percent), corporate citizenship and responsibility (20 percent), culture of ethics (20 percent), governance (15 percent) and leadership, innovation and reputation (10 percent). All companies that participate in the assessment process receive their scores, providing them with valuable insights into how they stack up against leading organizations.
