Ethisphere’s Most Ethical Firms 2020
Annually, Ethisphere reports on the most ethical firms in the world. As it notes in the introduction to the first volume of the 2020 report:
As we move through this time of dramatic disruption, the role and leadership of ethics and compliance is more important than ever. Communities, employees, and other stakeholders are counting on companies and leaders to make decisions and take actions founded in integrity.
Each year, through our World’s Most Ethical Companies® process, Ethisphere recognizes a select group of companies with exceptional programs and practices. As part of our mission to share leading practices, each year we release reports and data that illustrate key trends and themes from the data set the process generates.
During this time of unprecedented unrest, it may seem anachronistic to focus on these insights. However, as you start to think about the new normal, we hope that this information may prove valuable.
In 2020, 132 companies are recognized for setting the global standards of business integrity and corporate citizenship. The honorees span 21 countries and 51 industries and includes 14 first-time honorees and seven companies that have been named to the list every year since it’s inception.
